Heavy D Dead at 44

Sad news! I use to love Heavy D as a kid so when I heard about this I literally stopped what I was doing to post this. VERY sad news. Our thoughts are with his family at this time and he will be missed. Truly a rap legend.

 

Rap legend Heavy D — one of the most influential rappers of the ’90s — died earlier today … TMZ has learned.

Heavy D — real name Dwight Arrington Myers — was rushed to an L.A. hospital around noon today … and was pronounced dead at the hospital at 1 PM. He was 44 years old.

We’ve learned a 911 call was placed from Heavy’s Beverly Hills home around 11:25 AM to report an¬†unconscious male on the walkway .

When help arrived, we’re told Heavy D was conscious and speaking — and was transported to a nearby hospital.

He died a short time later.

Cops are investigating the death — and so far, there are no obvious signs of foul play. Police are currently at the home. ( TMZ )
