Hip-Hop Legend Heavy D Dies at 44

Heavy D

Hip-hop pioneer Heavy D died earlier today at the age of 44.

TMZ reports that the ’90s rapper, born Dwight Arrington Myers, was rushed to an L.A. hospital around noon on Tuesday, where he was later pronounced dead.

When respondents arrived at his Beverly Hills home earlier in the day, he was reportedly conscious and speaking. There were no obvious signs of foul pay, but police are investigating the death.

Heavy D most recently performed at the BET Hip-Hop Awards and Michael Jackson tribute concert in October.

    @Minajisthebest, Imma have to agree with @IKARYSS This is NOT the place for that obviously you’re not a true hiphop fan. You’re just hear for nicki. I mean a legend matter a fact a person has just died. His family and friends closest to him are grieving. and all you talk about is how you hate kim. How can you not see that this is an important time to just take a moment of silence and enjoy ur life. OMG i know good and well that if nicki saw this she would tell you tell STFU herself, she might be bawsed up and all dat but she’s giving her condolences and showing her love for heavy D at this very moment. sitDOWN
