Heavy D, who sadly passed on Nov. 08, 2011 at the age of 44, along with The Boyz were the first group signed on Andre Harrell‘s Uptown Records back in 1987. They would come to recognition two years later with this boiling jam, produced by New Jack Swing Don Teddy Riley as the opening cut to their 1989 released ‘Big Tyme’ album.
