R.I.P. Heavy D

I was surprised to hear when I got home this evening that Heavy D died today at the early age of 44. I remember listening to Heavy D & the Boyz albums growing up. One of my favorite songs from the Overweight Lover was "Black Coffee" from Nuttin But Love, the group's last studio release.

Heavy Rotation - "I'm on Fire" - Ludacris f. Big KRIT

Ludacris has recruited Big KRIT to be featured on a song from his upcoming mixtape, 1.21 Gigawatts: Back to the First Time, that will drop November 15th. The heavy bass beat features a dope guitar and vocal sample from Minnie Ripperton's "Every Time He Comes Around."  I haven't been able to stop playing it since my first listen. Download/Listen to the song below.
