“B.I.G. and Heavy” Collaboration Album WAS In the Works!?

In a recent XXL sitdown with Shaheem Reid, Lil Cease spoke on the passing of Heavy D, the influence he had on Biggie’s career, and a collaboration album that was in the works between the two titans:

“After Big took off, it was hard for them to set up the schedules, but, Big always had the idea in his head like, ‘Yo, you know what? Me and Hev doing something together.’ The relationship was there being around the whole Uptown situation. It was a unit, everybody was a family up there; Mary [J.] Blige, Jodeci, Christopher Williams — it was that bond. Him and Big was gonna try to put something together. That’s why they were doing all those records together [and trying to get] a vibe off each other.”

We may have never gotten the album but Hip-Hop did get “Let’s Get It On,” “Jam Session,” and…

…and so was a major comeback…

Whether or not you saw the BET Hip-Hop Awards last month, by now, you’ve surely seen the video of Heavy’s closing set. The performance was just the beginning for what Heavy had in store according to singer Carl Thomas who recently spoke to TMZ about the rapper’s comeback plans following the release of his September 27 album Love Opus. According to Thomas, “Heavy told him he was weeks away from shooting a music video for their song, “Still Missing You.” Thomas said Heavy had a director in place and had picked a location for the shoot.”

BET’s Soul Train Awards Tribute to Honor Heavy D Planned…

    Ok off topic.

    I heard these chicks talking bout love & hip hop.
    Now i dont watch reality shows. Cause we all know there are really scripted, nor do i care about these celebs that much to want to see their everyday life, on TV.

    But if i was juelz, me & jimmy would have a serious problem son.
    How u gonna play my baby mom like that on national TV.

    Then juelz chicks admitd she was messing wit fab, before him while fab was with his BM.

    So juelz got fab side peice wife up????? So not a good look…

    Niggah lose all intergity, when that money get low or something.
    Jim punk that niggah juelz to the fullest.

    Juelz prolly taken care of fab baby on the low…… Lol

    These rappers are fools….

    • Casor_Greener

      Stop all that lying homeboy, you know you watch that show and saw that b.s. go down.  Stop trying to front like you too gangsta for Reality TV.

      LMAO, but uh yeah that’s not a good look. If all these rappers claiming to be pimps why are they all funking with the same broads.  A bunch of chumps breaking bread for the same freaks….

      When did that type of b.s become playa?!??!

      • EL_BARK


        My disclaimer does make it seems that way, but i really dont funk with to many reality shows.
        But when i saw the clip of jim girl fuking the bitsh up.
        I was like, this might not be the typical reality show cat fight.

        On these rappers SMH.
        Man they breaking all types of man codes. I remember this bigghostface blog and he was going in on wiz, lol asking that niggah would he eat a old half eating cheeseburger, he found in the trash, after somebody else. Lmao

        I mean what hood is this type of behavior acceptable in.
        I know you aint going to find no pure as angel virgin women in they 20’s walking around in packs, but when you know a niggah or yall cross path or in the same game/ industry that not good. Them his baby mom was all proud she was fab side hoe.

        Which then make juelz look even lamer, cause you wife fab side hoe SMH,
        Then jimmy airs the shet lol, yo even if my man girl beat up my girl,

        Niggah you not suppose to air that shet, or it better be a episode down the line when my girl redeem her self. Fuk that i would have Drove my chick to jim bitsh,
        And got my girl to sneak her back, coming out the hair shop,
        With a couple of her home girls, while they was filming. Lol

        Thing that made it fuk up, was jim girl got up on sone smooth calm shet,
        Like she was excusing herself from the room.
        Yo i dieing after that. Lol

      • Casor_Greener

        Yeah man it’s some straight some sucker moves.  Reality TV makes these clowns look sad.

Absolutely nothing to hate on about you. An unblemished career and Nothin but Love for real…#so hurt

  • The Truth

    It seems like people took my comment out of context. What I meant to say was that: Where was all the heavy d hype before he passed? I never knew who the guy was sure, but it’s sad that it had a to take him passing away in order for me to find out who he was. It’s sad man. People don’t get the respect they deserve when they are alive.Ya’ll wait till they die and then wanna plaster up your websites with RIP messages and ecetra.
