Heavy D & The Boyz

Living Large is the debut LP from the legendary (?) Heavy D & The Boyz. Released in 1987, it had the major hits "Mr. Big Stuff", the classic "The Overweight Lovers In The House", and "Don't You Know." The production, handled by Teddy Riley, Marley Marl, Eddie F., and Andre Harrell is typical 80's fare -- fun, simple, and heavy on the drum beats. I didn't dig "Mr. Big Stuff" when it first came out. I only bought this when I did because it was dirt cheap. IT turned out to be a pretty good listen for me. If you dig 80's rap at all, I recommend giving this one a listen. It may not be required listening, but it definitely won't disappoint either. Enjoy, everyone.
