R.I.P. Heavy D

Rap legend Heavy D (Dwight Arrington Myers)  passed on yesterday at the age of 44.  It came as a shock to everyone after seeing Heavy seemingly in great condition as he performed at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards less than a month ago.  A cause of death hasn't been given yet, but TMZ offered this information.

Law enforcement tell TMZ ... Heavy D had just returned from shopping and walked up some stairs when he began having trouble breathing. Adam Mills, a designer who was in the building and knew Heavy D, found him leaning against a railing and clearly in distress. Adam tells us he cradled Heavy D in his lap as others called 911. Adam says Heavy D was conscious and said to him, "I can't breathe, I can't breathe." When paramedics took Heavy D to the hospital he had a pulse. People in the building are saying he died of a heart attack, but we have not been able to confirm that. Law enforcement sources tell us ... no foul play was involved and so far they only know the cause of death was "medical."

Heavy D.  was a rapper that gave us music to dance to and wasn't afraid to bust a move himself.  In fact, he was just as known for his dancing as he was his music.  During his time with the group Heavy D and The Boyze  he gave us hits like "We Got Our Own Thang", "Is It Good to You" and "Nutting But Love."  And of course WE ALL loved to hear him say "Diddly, Diddly, Diddly, Dee."  Check out his performance on the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards and other hits below.
