The Best Heavy D Album Period
Reggie L. Mattocks | Upper Marlboro, MD | 01/23/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've been fortunate to have kept up with "The Overweight Lover" all these years but undoubtedly this CD stands out as not only his best, but a classic five mic album. This is when rap was fun and it wasn't all about nonsense beefs (see Game/50 cent, Nas/Jay-Z, Lil Kim/Foxy Brown), this was a time where if you couldn't rap, or you couldn't freestyle and step up to the plate when called out, you're career is done. Not like today where mushmouth rappers (50 cent & G-Unit, Fabulous, MA$E, and all the rest of those mushmouth, winey rappers we have today)can live large off one CD. Back then when it came to lyrics, Heavy D was right there in talent with the Big Daddy Kane's, KRS-One's, Chuck D's, Kool G. Rap's, D.O.C.'s, Ice Cube's, Biz Markie's, LL Cool J's, Kool Moe Dee's, Run DMC's of the worlds where skills actually made or broke your career, not crossover radio play. Where back then, it was frowned upon by other rap artists and fans alike for an artist to strictly make records to cross over. However with Heavy D, not only was he lyrically gifted, and had bangin tracks that radio just couldn't ignore to party to, but was one of the first rappers to incorporate reggae lyrics (him being of Jamaican descent) into his songs (Check out "Mood For Love"). While Run DMC shattered the charts with "My Adidas", Heavy was shattering the streets with "NIKE" just when the ORIGINAL Air Force One's was coming into their own. There's not a bad cut on this LP at all and Gyrlz They Love Me, is probably the banginest track on here.

Just to add one more piece to the Heavster's legacy, I can never think of one rap artist that ever had a foul thing or a bad thing or diss to say about Heavy D. Which is extremely rare in today's so-called rap climate. That goes to show not only the respect this man garnered from his peers, but he also gave that same respect back. This is what hip-hop was supposed to be about, being original, being skillful with the raps, and staying true to you without having to sellout."
The Summer of 89 belonged to.....

"Heavy D, Guy and New Edition. Hev is one of my all-time favorite rappers, because he showed brothers how to get the ladies and do it with class. I can remember wearing the polka dot and paisley colored shirts doing all of their dances. Also Hev was the only rapper that I could listen to because he did'nt curse. Thanks Hev."

"I love hip-hop, but I must confess, I miss the simple fun of it, you know, the party side of it w/o all the cussin and such. This was the Album you had to have back in the day (Thank god for CD's). Its hard to figure out which one was the best cut, they all were so good. But without hesitation, it has to be "We Got Our Own Thang". With Teddy Riley's new jack swing beat, this was the cut back in '89. If you want to go back, or are planning a reunion/wedding with your friends from back in the day, you have to get this CD. Look out Soul Train Line!! :)"
