Baby Huey - Hard Times

Like shanksy said about my Lee Moses post (where a chubby Moses was decked out in the tightest pants you could imagine), you just know fat dudes with sweet soul voices were getting more play that we could even dream of. Baby Huey weighed in at 400lbs, and dropped some of the illest soul the 70's ever saw. He recorded this one LP in 1970, but died later that year from complications due to his heroin addiction. This album was a huge influence on early hiphop. Expect to hear this dropped at the next B&M marathon..
