Got Me Waiting

Biggie, Pun and even 8Ball tend to get the most props for representing the heavier side of HipHop, but what about the originator, Heavy D?

Hev was down with Uptown/MCA records and played a big part in the New Jack Swing period in HipHop and RnB. His style was mainstream/ party-oriented, but he kept it HipHop. Meaning, my moms liked him but he still got respect. The cool thing about Hev is that he was also a lady's man with moves. In videos and live performances, Hev was right there getting it in with The Boyz (R.I.P.- T. Roy!) and making the ladies scream.

Another thing people may forget about Hev is that he introduced and brought a couple of sucessful acts to the RnB game when he served as head of Uptown. Remember Monifah and Soul for Real?

So after spending some time away from music by upping his acting resume, Hev is back with a new reggae joint.



The song is a good look, with Nia Long being an even better look.
