The hip hop community lost one of its most beloved figures November 8, 2011.  No one was expecting to hear the saddening news of the passing of Heavy D, especially after seeing him the previous month on the BET Hip Hop Awards.  To commemorate his life and effect on the hip hop community, and music in general, Centric aired a well-deserved documentary. I hope that his legacy and musical influence will stretch beyond a few months worth of nostalgic looks back at his life, because Dwight Arrington Myers touched many of us with his fluid moves, liquid flows, and charismatic flair.  My prayers go out to Heavy D's family and close friends.  A special thanks is extended to Yardie, also known as Mr. World Premiere, for posting the documentary in its entirety.  Peaceful journey Heavy D!
