Heavy Mr Big Stuff
by DJ Quik
DJ Quik Heavy Mr Big Stuff
Peep the brand new, that’s right, brand new DJ Quik jam, written as a tribute to Heavy D. Jeff Weiss of Passion of the Weiss, (and just recently Pitchfork) said it best:
"David Blake dropping the most elegiac tribute to Heavy D yet. The fact that Quik cooked this up in a night or two would be mind blowing if it was anyone but Quik. In his 41st year, his chop game stays soulful and vicious. Between Quik and Ish from Shabazz Palaces, he has shredded all lingering axioms about rap strictly being a young man’s game. In one minute of rapping, Quik highlights everything that made Waterbed Kev so unique and delivers his words with the requisite mournful fury this sort of thing requires. R.I.P. once more to the overweight lover."
