The Godfather of Hip-Hop has lost a dear friend.

This morning, Russell Simmons appeared on VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live and talked briefly about the loss of one of his own, rapper Heavy D.

Calling Heavy a "special artist," Russell thought back to when he first listened to Mr. Big Stuff and how he knew then that Heavy was going to be a "author of a whole new kind of music."

Check out the video (above) to hear more Russell about the loss of his dear friend.

The whole community is feeling this one. He truly was inspiring.

    Heavy D was a rare treat….especially coming from the Rap world. He was a gentleman.

    "one of HIS KIND"??? Heavy D was ALL of our kind. a human being. why don't you have your staff do some proof reading before posting. also, many of your posts are filled with spelling and grammatical errors. sometimes i feel 10x dumber when i read some of the posts on here.
