In 1989: Heavy D & The Boyz fully step into rap stardom with “Big Tyme” a second LP that proved bigger and better than their first.

On June 12, 1989, the clique comprised of rapper Heavy D and dancers G-Whiz (Glen Parrish), “Trouble” T. Roy (Troy Dixon), and Eddie F, served up a heavier dosage of the upbeat, feel-good tunes they injected the rap world with on their debut LP, Living Large. Laced with bouncy breakbeats and bits of radio-ready R&B crooning, Big Tyme helped define New Jack Swing, a largely Teddy Riley-crafted genre. Riley produced the album alongside hip-hop legends like Marley Marl, DJ Eddie F and Pete Rock, so that much makes sense.
