R.I.P. Heavy D! Rapper Dies Suddenly!

| Filed under: R.I.P.


Very sad.

Fans of 90s rap music are feeling a great loss today as the legendary Heavy D died earlier this afternoon.

Heavy D was rushed to an L.A. hospital around noon, after he was found unconscious on a walkway near his home in Beverly Hills. After 911 was called, Heavy was conscious and speaking, but was transported to the hospital for further testing. An hour later, he had passed.

Police do not suspect foul play, but they are investigating his strange and sudden death.

How heartbreaking. He had just performed at the BET Awards last month too. He looked fine. Just goes to show, you just never know.

Our condolences go out to his family,friends and fans.

R.I.P., Heavy D.

    Dwight Arrington Myers was born in Jamaica and moved to NY (Mount Vernon) as a young child, according to his updated Wiki bio.
    He rose to prominence as a rap artist and had a devoted following.
    Perez, a story like this requires the facts, and that should include his given name. Please remember this in the future.

    our fat rappers dont even perform anymore these days!! they are so fat they need a hype man because they are constantly out of breath. " The overwieght lover" used to give some good performances. I really loved his style.. Rhythmic & jovial.. not masogynistic sitting there talking about food & money & drugs. What a disapointing day in hip hop history. I loved to see him dance.

    He is one of the best rappers back in the day. These rappers now have nothing on D and others like LL,Biggie,Tupac those were good rappers. Although LL is still alive and Biggie,Tupac passed on they were the greatest. R.I.P D
