Hip-Hop Icon Heavy D. passed away yesterday at the age of 44. Heavy D., real name Dwight Meyers, returned to his Beverly Hills condo around 11:30 a.m. from shopping. As he exited his car, he passed out from shortness of breath. Paramedics arrived, transporting Heav to Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. Doctors tried vigorously to revive the legend, but was pronounced dead at 1 p.m. Pacific Time.
Heavy D. was the first "overwieght" rapper that catered to the women and being fresh. Notorious B.I.G. even gave it up to Heavy, who put Biggie on his albums long before the world knew of the greatest Brooklyn M.C. Heavy also produced hits for Jay-Z("Guns N Roses"), and Carl Thomas("Summer Rain").
Heavy D. will forever be known as the M.C. that put Mt. Vernon on the map, with "Mr. Big Stuff", "Money Earnin' Mt. Vernon", and Girlz, They Love Me." Hip-Hop definitely lost an ambassador. R.I.P. Heavy D.
