Hip hop has lost yet another one of its most powerful people of the 90’s. Early this year hip hop lost rapper Nate Dogg and now Heavy D has passed on as well. Rapper Heavy D was pronounced dead at an L.A. hospital at 1 PM. The rapper had been rushed to the hospital after a 911 call was placed from Heavy D’s Beverly Hills home around 11:25 AM to report an unconscious male on the walkway .
When help arrived, the “Now That We Found Love” rapper was conscious and speaking. He was later transported to the hospital and died shortly thereafter.
Dwight Arrington Myers (Heavy D) had just performed at the Michael Jackson tribute concert and BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta 1 month prior to his untimely passing.
Weighing in at over 250 pounds, Heavy tweeted his last, but biggest message to the world earlier today: “BE INSPIRED!”
Lets keep his friends, family, and fans in our prayers during their time of bereavement.
