Farewell Heavy D – True Hip hop Legend

Hip Hop Icon dies at 44

Heavy, whose real name is Dwight Arrington Myers, died at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on November 8, 2011. A 911 call was made at 11:25 A.M. PT after the rapper fell unconscious on the walkway of his home. When paramedics arrived, he was conscious and able to communicate though experiencing trouble breathing. He was pronounced dead around an hour later.(Ace Entertainment, 2011)

On December 27, 2011 the medical reports were released. The cause of death is said to have been a blood clot in his lungs that may have occurred on his flight from London to LA.

The world of Hip Hop lost a literal giant. Personally one of my all-time favorite Hip Hop stars. The Icon made his mark in the entertainment industry without the violent themes used by most rappers and hip-hop stars of today and during his era. One of his biggest hits “Now that we found love” can still be heard ons some radio stations even today. Heavy D you will be missed.
