The Hip-Hop world is saddened by the passing of Heavy D yesterday afternoon. Heavy had collapsed outside of his condo in Beverly Hills at approximately 11:25am yesterday morning. When paramedics arrived, he was conscious and breathing, although complaining of breathing complications. He was later taken to Cedar-Sinai Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at approximately 1:00pm Pacific Time. Early reports state it was due to flu-like symptoms or a possible heart attack. An autopsy has been performed but the medical examiners office will not release any cause of death until toxicology reports come back in about 4-6 weeks.
Heavy was born May 24th, 1967. Real name Dwight Arrington Myers. He was just a mere 44 years old. All of us here at StreetHop.com send our personal condolences to the family and friends of the legendary man who created an enormous pathway for artists today.
