Grandmaster Flash just passed on some terrible news: Heavy D has passed away. We are told he died in a Los Angeles hospital at 1pm today after being rushed there at 12pm. He recently returned from an overseas trip where he caught pneumonia.
Some years back there was a young, ambitious, tenacious young man who wanted to rule the world. This young man and I grew up in the same town. I was slightly older by a couple of years but I had already begun to realize my dreams.
