Throwback: Happy 56th Birthday, Heavy D!

May is a very busy month in music history:

Heavy D was born 56 years ago today. We lost him at the tragically too young age of 44. But when I was young, I was a huge fan of his. So many of these songs bring back memories of my childhood: I remember getting a copy of the Peaceful Journey album on cassette tape. I played that tape to death and then some.

Happy birthday, brother! Happy birthday, wherever you are.
