Heavy D & The Boys – “Living Large” Album Anniversary
On October 25th 1987, Heavy D dropped his debut album “Living Large”. The album was produced by DJ Eddie F, Teddy Riley and Marley Marl. Although the album never went gold, it is considered by many as a Hip Hop classic. The album contained Heavy’s first single, “Mr. Big Stuff” and it begins where the Fat Boys left off. Heavy D’s presence was that of the x-large guy that is “huggable and loveable”.
Emcee Heavy D, constant weight gainer!
And since I choose, the weight not to lose
I will stay THIS way, so that I can bruise
emcees around, who front and frown
You go round for round, I go pound for pound
At the end of the party when you’re sayin g’night
Don’t come to me and say “take it light”
I’m your Mr. Big Stuff”
