After Busta took the cover-all approach in honoring the late Heavy D, The Quiksta narrows in more specifically to game us young bloods on the reasons Waterbed Hev’s legacy will live on past his physical form. Using a sparse base and double-time flow, the prince of the Left Coast reminds folk that The Boys’ ringleader helped “make gangstas sing” and even “Biggie go from gold to plat.” On more personal note, Quik even says Heavy gave him “a tip to make (his) music sizzle.”
Considering I was still in single digits when Heavy D was in his prime, hearing one of the most influential artists in my book credit him with such rippling accolades tells me his mind was just as big as his presence.
