Rapper Heavy D, Dead At 44

By  |  22 Comments

Another one of the greats has passed on, rapper Heavy D died earlier today (Tues. Nov. 8th)  after collapsing outside of his Beverly Hills home.  Police say there are no suspicions of foul play however an official cause of death has not been revealed. Heavy D, who’s real name is  Dwight Arrington Myers was pronounced dead in the emergency room at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

His death seems sudden after just last month wowing Hip-hop fans on stage at the 2011 BET Hip-Hop Awards. A performance some would call his comeback. Boasting an enthusiastic  medley of his best-known singles, among them “Nuttin’ But Love,” “Is It Good to You” and “Now That We Found Love.” He was known  and will probably always be remembered for his dancing and intricate rhyming style.

His last Tweet on the social networking site Twitter reads “BE INSPIRED” tweeted shortly after he acknowledged the death of boxing legend Joe Fraizer who past Nov. 7th due to complications with liver cancer, Heavy D was 44 years old.

 

UPDATE:

*Update* TMZ reported that they were able to speak to  law enforcement who gave them more information:

Heavy D had just returned from shopping and walked up some stairs when he began having trouble breathing.  Adam Mills, a designer who was in the building and knew Heavy D, found him leaning against a railing and clearly in distress.  Adam tells us he cradled Heavy D in his lap as others called 911.  Adam says Heavy D was conscious and said to him, “I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe.” When paramedics took Heavy D to the hospital he had a pulse.  People in the building are saying he died of a heart attack, but we have not been able to confirm that.  Law enforcement sources tell us … no foul play was involved and so far they only know the cause of death was “medical.”

Later they reported “An associate of Heavy D’s just told us the rapper had pneumonia.”
