Get More: Big Morning Buzz Live
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.
