  1. Heavy D Tribute: Big Ted's Peaceful Journey Written On Nov. 9, 2011 Tonight I've been tossin' and turnin' in my sleep With my heart feelin' "Heavy" As I reminisce on the legend's "Peaceful Journey" Who represented as one of the greatest mcs Like Outkast he was "So Fresh and So Clean" With smooth rhymes going "Big Tyme" like "Black Coffee" He gave us an alternative to the fake thugs By showing "Nuttin' But Love" On the mic he would tear it up When he brought us the "Blue Funk" It hurts deep that he's no longer with us As I contemplate all the greats he's on a short list In no particular order like this, he's one of the truest Shoutouts to KRS, LL, Latifah, Lyte, Fresh Prince Hammer, Kane, Flava Flav, Chuck D, Run-Dmc, Cube, Moe Dee, Rakim And the Hieroglyphic mcs introduced to me by the australian homie Tim My brother I could see you up there as we "ask heaven" "just coolin'" With Levert and them As our world is in "self destruction" You were the man that prayed for "A Better Land" I hold my head up to the clouds Prayin' for the artist that proclaimed "The Overweight Lover's In The House" You're up there savin' a space right now For all the real heads to reunite With Jam Master Jay, Michael Jackson, Scott La Rock, 2Pac, Aaliyah Biggie, Big L, Teena Marie, Left Eye, Guru, Ray Charles, Sinatra Your brother Trouble T Roy, Sammie Davis, the comedy kings Mac and Pryor, and the Godfather James Brown Our loved ones from Afganistan and Iraq And the other wars of combat I lost my friend in Iraq who was known as John Lyons KRS-ONE's been crying to "Stop The Violence" It's only fitting that you left with smokin' Joe Frasier God only calls on those who hold it down major As long as we bump your classics Hip hop will never decay the form You've been in the game almost since I was born You dropped in '86, I came in '85 on March 4th Rest In Peace "Waterbed Hev" Big Ted will always rep the truest to the fullest Leavin' the world at 44 in your prime Displays how we can't take for granted That we must cherish this lifetime That's why with every breathe in me I will recite rhymes Like your example we must "Live Large" until we all depart As we reminisce over you, my god As I bring this verse to a final point You repped money earnin' mt. vernon Like the NBA's Ben Gordon at the point Right now you're spittin' with Big Pun since you were always "On Point" You were like the Poor Righteous Teachers "Rockin' The Funky Joint" Your music inspired millions to stay strong Since we appreciate your great songs Like you I'm a respectful lyrical arsonist since I "Don't Curse" Droppin' knowledge and wisdom in each verse Every live breath from me brings life to the game And sucka mcs to the dirt from the hearse The only difference is that it would take me a million years To accomplish all that you did as a pioneer to the biz At 44 your whole catolog was just endless That's why this peaceful journey is only at the beginning In other words the true music doesn't ever finish
