Heavy D & the Boyz were the first group signed to Uptown Records, with Heavy D as the frontman and only rapper. Eddie F was his business partner in the group, DJ, and one of the producers. The other two members, T-Roy and G-Wiz were the dancers. Their debut, Living Large, was released in 1987. The album was a commercial success; Big Tyme was a breakthrough that included four hits.
Big Tyme was released in 1989 for Uptown Records and was produced by DJ Eddie F, Teddy Riley, Marley Marl, and Pete Rock. The album was considerably more successful than the group’s last album, making it to #19 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Three hit singles were released: “We Got Our Own Thang”, “Somebody for Me”, and “Gyrlz, They Love Me”.
