Pete Rock speaks about his cousin Heavy D’s death [Audio]

The unfortunate passing of hip hop legend Heavy D yesterday aged only 44 (read our tribute piece here), shocked the music world and heartfelt tributes have been pouring in ever since. Heavy D’s first cousin, the pioneering producer Pete Rock spoke to Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg on their Hot 97 show.

Pete sounded obviously upset and said it was hurtful and that he was having a hard time taking it in. He said he saw him a couple weeks ago and that they were working on music together recently. Pete also talks about how Heavy hooked him up in the early days of the career.

Listen to the interview below and after that a special mix by Rosenberg. RIP Heavy D.
