I you were the type back in the day that bought all the 12 inch singles (which there were plenty of back in tha day), but not the albums, then you'll love this as a starter joint. To my amazement, they added "You Can't See What I Can't See" which was released as a single but never put on an lp.

All songs take me back in the day when life was simpler and less complicated and all you had to worry about was having your 3.99 at "The Wiz" for the next album or .99 for the next 12 inch single. Like all greatest hits cd's, there are always gonna be some curious omissions and additions which prevented me from giving it 5 stars.

First the omissions, I'm curious as to why Blue Funk was left off this list, as well as "Nike" "Money Earnin Mount Vernon" "Who's The Man (From the movie soundtrack with the same name)" the reggae smash "Mood For Love (which wasn't a single but received heavy radio rotation on r&b radio)" and of course the remix version of "Got Me Waiting" with r&B sensation at the time Silk. The real crime is leaving off "Don't Curse" which was phat and "Peaceful Journey" off the same named lp.

The additions, "Just Coolin". Nice song for it's time but it was Levert's song with Heavy D rappin a few lines in the song. That could have easily been left off.

But other than that, great cd from a great artist and lyricist.

All of Hev's hits are included on this best of. From early hits like The Overweight Lover's in the House and Mr. Big Stuff, to the dance floor staples like Now That We Found Love and Nuttin' But Love, to love songs like Don't You Know and Is It Good To You and Hev classics like We Got Our Own Thang and Got Me Waiting, this is a solid best of Heavy D and the Boyz contribution to the Hip hop game. Heavy and T-Roy may be gone, but their music is never forgotten.

Awesome cd! All of the old school Heavy D & The Boyz jams are on this cd. Brings back some major memories of my childhood and high school. This is some real Hip Hop!! There is nothing like it these days. Clean, fun and meaningful lyrics. The cd came brand new and was priced reasonably. I recommend purchasing this product.

This is a great compilation from one of the great showmen and
pioneering personalities from the golden era of hip-hop!!
Everything on here was a jam back in the days when the pop world
was beginning to see hip hop music and culture as an artform and
a very lucrative business venture! (-:
RUN DMC & a few other notables had kicked down the
doors and it was "ON 2 DA' BREAKA-BREAKA DAWN!!"

The years 1986-1990 were a very transitional period in hip-hop...
The earlier party jams and street chants were starting to give way
to serious message hip-hop (Public Enemy & X CLAN), the west coast
was coming up also (Ice-T, NWA, Too Short & Digital Underground),
and then there was the jazz-infused trippy hip-hop (De La Soul,
The Jungle Bros. & A Tribe Called Quest).
One thing was certain...it was making money and suburbia had deemed it "the hot ticket"!!
Enter into this prosperous & exciting time...
HEAVY D. & THE BOYZ from "Money-Earnin' Mt. Vernon",
whose slick, energetic & fly dance routines established
the whole MC upfront with the two funky dancers to either side
with the DJ spinning in the background style that would
become the standard for a long time to come!
THE HEAVSTER a.k.a THE OVERWEIGHT LOVER had more style and
personality in his pinky toe than a whole lot of people had
in their whole body!---And boy, could he spit & flow!!--WOW!!
He wore loud colors, flashy gear, the guys liked him, and the
Girlz, the Girlz..they LOVED HIM!! (-:

I am officially asking everybody who reads this review to complain
to VH-1 so that Heavy D & The Boyz, true pioneers in the game,
can get their just due next year and be inducted into
the 2009 VH-1 Hip Hop Honors!!

What is there to write about this, this cd has his greatest hits and more, he was a true talent, great artist and actor, amazing rapper, producer and most importantly a great reggae artist as well. Although his reggae songs weren't on this album, and yes on every single album he's made he always had one reggae song before he did his reggae album.

Some of the best times in hip hop was this man and Chubb rock going at each other in freestyles on the radio which led to the song who's the man by heavy which is also on this album.

It's sad that we lost a great artist of this caliber, but he blessed us with enough music for is to enjoy. To be honest, although this is labeled greatest hits, I would recommend buying all of his albums because he never really did a bad song.

All of the Hevsters heavy hitters are featured on this joint, I only give it 4 out of 5 stars because two of my personal Hev D favs were excluded from this project Truthful and Peaceful Journey but still a very nice collection from the Heavy D cataloge........R.I.P Hev

Not too many hip hop artists have stood the test of time. Many have fallen by the bling-bling wayside, but Heavy D has been consistent over the years and this greatest hits package shows it. Heavy's music has always been fun and about having a good time. Whether he's rapping about coming from Money Earnin' Mount Vernon, falling in love, or being the quintessential Overweight Lover, he has some of the most classic hip hop songs. As a matter of fact, this could have been a double CD package because there are many songs off his albums that weren't released as singles and therefore weren't hits in the classic sense of the word, but were all that nonetheless. Now Heavy D & the Boyz have moved on to separate endeavors, but their songs live on. Thanks Heavy D & The Boyz for 13 years of great music!
