    Yeah, man. He never attained "super star" status, but he was a solid presence, and is definitely worth mentioning in any discussion of old school Hip-hop. Forty four isn't old AT ALL. Crazy stuff.

    I wouldn't call Heavy "Old School hip-hop". I'd say more "New Jack Swing" than anything.

    I can see why you'd say that. He did do a lot of work with Teddy Riley and was a major part of the New Jack Swing movement, also, but he was around before that. And, if you wanted to include up to about '93-'94* under the definition of "old school", he was still present afterwards.

    *I feel that the major swing towards what the kids are calling Hip-hop nowadays began around this time.

    I remember him on a few episodes of Living Single. (a 90's sitcom version of Sex and the City)
