Today we have a tribute to the late great Dwight Arrington Myers, better known as the rapper Heavy D who died yesterday at age 44.  Also known as “The Overweight Lover”.  Many of us who grew up during the late 80s and early 90s were familiar with his 1991 hit “Now That We Found Love.”  RIP Heavy D.
