Heavy also recorded the theme song to In Living Color.

 

In 1996 he was appointed President of Uptown Records. He is credited with hiring Diddy as an intern and helping to guide the early career of Mary J. Blige.

 

 

Heavy, real name Dwight Myers, also appeared in films and several televison programs including Who's the Man, Step Up, Tower Heist. The Tracy Morgan Show, Are We There Yet?, Boston Public and more.
