Nuttin' But Love (1994)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Heavy D & the Boyz; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Don't call it a comeback. Heavy D's fifth album, Nuttin' But Love, is more like a slight return to his old ways as rap's ''Overweight Lover.'' Full of juicy, rolling bass lines with light touches of strings and horns, Nuttin' doesn't stray far from affairs of the heart. A safe bet for the Mount Vernon rapper, but with all of hip-hop's gangsterism, it's a refreshingly safe bet. B
