3 Play Thursday - Heavy D.

It's 3 Play Thursday. Today: rap legend Heavy D.

Ahhh, the days when cRappers made music the whole family could listen to. These days are long gone, but once upon a time there were artists like DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, Queen Latifah, and of course Heavy D.

Dwight Myers, a Jamaican teen from money earnin' Mount Vernon, NY had a decade-long run of making fun music that was largely inoffensive, but still had a decent amount of street cred, something Will Smith never quite mastered. And yeah, he's still around now, acting in the occasional B-Movie and making reggae music. Still, he had some classic material back in the day. And yeah, he managed to pull this off despite being somewhat overweight. I'd love to see Rick Ross top that.

Enough of the talk, let's get to the tracks. Everyone has their favorites, here's a few of mine.

"Mr. Big Stuff"

"The Overweight Lover's In The House"

"Is It Good To You?"

Question: What are your favorite Heavy D cuts?!?
