It's still just as sad writing about this now as it was when we did the first post on Heavy D's death.

The rapper who was found dead in his Beverly Hills home Tuesday will be remembered two ways next week.

On Thursday, there were will be a public viewing in NYC for anyone who wants to go and pay tribute. But on Friday, there will be a very exclusive funeral service reserved only for family and close friends.

The list of close friends includes Diddy, Mary J. Blige, and some Wayan Brothers.

We wish his spirit all the peace.
