    @loafer91 Im sure they’re not happy that he died I’m assuming it’s a thumbs up out of respect for him and his music.

    why is it that every time someone dies, there’s some dumb ass who always asks “why would you thumbs down/up this?!” how about you THINK for one fucking second. just one, and see if you possess the most BASIC humanly ounce of common sense. fucking tards.

    Simple concept: Thumbs Up = Glad 2DB posted RIP. / Thumbs Down = It sucks that he died. Easy enough to understand right? Anyways i wasn’t a fan, but RIP.

    RIP Heavy D we were just talking about his cut with Grand Puba, Kool G Rap, CL Smooth, Pete Rock, Big Daddy Kane & Q-Tip “Dont Curse”. Can’t believe his last album got slept on either. He’ll always be my favorite M.C. Bless
