Heavy D's Cause Of Death Revealed

UPDATE #2: The veteran rapper unexpectedly passed away in November.

Mount Vernon, New York emcee-turned-actor Heavy D (born Dwight Myers) has been reported dead. He was 44 years of age. TMZ.com reports that Heavy D was found unconscious near the entrance to his Beverly Hills, California home and rushed to the hospital. Details are still emerging regarding the longtime Uptown Records rapper's cause of death, however peers and loved ones including rapper-turned-deejay/photographer D-Nice and author/activist dream hampton have publicly mourned the rapper's loss.

The Jamaican-born emcee was leader of Heavy D & The Boyz, a late 1980s Hip Hop group which released five albums, all on the Uptown label. The group included G-Whiz, DJ Eddie F., and the late "Trouble" T. Roy, who helped inspire Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth's "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)." Between 1987 and 1994, Heavy D & The Boyz worked with the likes of Notorious B.I.G., DJ Premier, Marley Marl and longtime affiliate and fellow Mount Vernon native Pete Rock.

As a solo artist, Heavy D remained close with Uptown Records executive Sean "Diddy" Combs and the mogul's Bad Boy Records imprint, despite never releasing a Bad Boy album. Recently, Heavy D released Grammy-nominated Reggae album Vibes on the Stride label in 2008. Previously, D had released Waterbed Hev in 1997 and a self-titled 1999 album.

The group performed the title track to FOX's In Living Color show, and appeared on the program. As an actor, Heavy D would appear in films such as Life.

At the time of his death, Heavy D was at work on an album called Love Opus, set to feature Anthony Hamilton and Carl Thomas. Just weeks ago, Heavy D performed at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards. It was days after Heavy D had performed his hit Michael Jackson collaboration, "Jam," alongside LaToya Jackson.

Earlier today, HipHopDX posted a recent interview with Heavy D and Tim Westwood.

HipHopDX extends condolences to Heavy D's family, loved ones and group, Heavy D & The Boyz.

UPDATE: According to TMZ, an associate of Heavy D claims that he had pneumonia. Though it is unclear if his death was related to his ailment, he had returned from shopping when he suddenly fell ill. A designer who was in the building called 911 and sent him to the hospital. Others claim that he died from a heart attack, though that is unconfirmed.

[November 8]

UPDATE #2: TMZ reports that Heavy D died from a pulmonary embolism caused by deep leg vein thrombosis. The affliction, which occurs over periods of prolonged immobility, could have been caused by a flight Heavy D took the prior day from Europe to Los Angeles, California. Heart disease could have also been a factor.

    A lot of you ignorant Cats for real need to get knocked out have some respect for the Man wow!!! My friend Eva got me Heavy D's album "BIG TYME" which dropped in 1989 and till this day I still pull it out and bump it. "Living Large" and "Blue Funk" are 2 other Albums from Heavy D that are mad dope too. Heavy D might not of been a lyrical genius or anything like that but this Cat is real Hip Hop and his Music is still better then 90% of the Garbage on the Radio today. Favorite joints of all time would have to be "You can't see what I can see" feat Flavor Flav, "Overweight lover in the House" and "Don't Curse" feat Big Daddy Kane, Grand Pupa, Pete Rock, CL Smooth, Kool G Rap and Q Tip. All Classics!!!!. My condolences go out to the Family and Friends of Heavy D especially to his daughter. I would have a few words for you haters but like the Veteran said "Don't curse" so I'm a do as the Heavster said. You're with Trouble T Roy now Heavy D both of y'all RIP. Nothing will ever beat Hip Hop from the 80's and 90's and Heavy D was proof of that he did his damn thing for many many years. Thank you Heavy D

    He died of fat leg thrombosis Ain't a bitch

  • bigfoot89

    "details emerging"? DX be on some DJ Vlad shit, whats the cause of his death?

  • Mr Flamboyant

    This is messed up. I hope that Heavy D didn't know of this condition. If he did, this is a sad case of ignoring common sense and doctor's advice. No one with this condition should take long flights or long drives as such due to it being a very serious health condition that can give you blood clots like it's nobody's business.

  • hellno

    all these people saying how people are being so disrepectful and how these young kids listening to lil wayne have no respect for the legend and how its so sad people dont respect him need to shut up and never talk again. i havent seen ONE disrepectful comment towards heavy d on this entire thing. people just assume these stupid things automatically and its usually bs.

    • hellno

      i looked through all the pages, maybe some stuff was deleted. but with people like YADIG, they dont actually mean it when they say like who is heavy d they just want to piss people off. dont make assumptions about like an entire generation cuz of people like YADIG and So Icy Boi etc.

    he moved alot didnt he? i dont get it

    • ASDFD

      Hes right though, the death was because of him being fat and not eating right... although he is keepin it real, haveSOMErespect

    • Marx

      It's cool for you to say what you mean & mean what you say. It would just be nice if you could come at the subject with a little bit more respect. If some1 you knew died you wouldn't want people to address it like that.

    • ayo456

      @Rottnkid he posted his comment last month. so, he couldn't have known his cause of death. looks like you're the dumbass now.

    • Rottnkid

      Sorry dumbass, read this again: "Heavy D died from a pulmonary embolism caused by deep leg vein thrombosis. The affliction, which occurs over periods of prolonged immobility, could have been caused by a flight Heavy D took the prior day from Europe to Los Angeles, California. Heart disease could have also been a factor." If you took your ass out the fkn hood and traveled on a fkn airplane then you just might, maybe understand.

  • who can beat Wu Tang lyrically

    R.I.P

    • K:O:S

      Thanks for you reply buckeyewu. No doubt RZA killed that verse! Wu got insane lyrics! Weak as it is, I really don't have the time to find alot of lyrics from L.O.X etc. to support my statement. But here are a few: Styles P "Last year I lost my feelings/ got the devil on my shoulder whispering/ that he supports my killings" "Jail turns some boys to men, some men to bitches/ It's the place where they end your wishes." Jadakiss: "I'm just tryin to make sure that my sons wealthy/ Out of shape but I make sure that my guns healthy" "Listen, I'ma leave you right where you stand/ Have the ambulance pass ya Timberlands off right to ya man"

    • buckeyewu

      No disrespect to your opinion K:O:S and I love LOX and Slaughterhouse but I still havent heard anyone touch Wu's lyrics from the days of their prime. Maybe now they could beat them but I doubt it. Below is what I'm talking about. Aiyyo, camoflouge chameleon, ninjas scalin your buildin No time to grab the gun they already got your wife and children A hit was sent, from the President, to rage your residence Because you had secret evidence, and documents On how they raped the continents, and it's the prominent dominant Islamic, Asiatic black hebrew The year two thousand and two, the battle's filled with the Wu Six million devils just died from the Bubonic Flu Or the Ebola Virus, under the reign of King Cyrus You can see the weakness of a man right through his iris Un-loyal snakes get thrown in boilin lakes of hot oil, it boils your skin, chickenheads gettin slim like Olive Oyl, only plant the seed deep inside fertile soil Fortified with essential, vitamin and mineral use the sky for a blanket, stuffin clouds inside my pillow Rollin with the Lands, the tribe's a hundred and forty four thousand chosen Protons Electrons Always Cause Explosions

    • K:O:S

      I deserve to die cause my thoughts on lyrical ability doesn't consist of a uncritical & childlike simplicity? I can't help I'm not one of those Wu sheeple like you! Styles P & Jadakiss can beat any member of Wu-Tang lyrically! That's a fact! Crooked I, Royce & Ortiz can do the same! Sheek & Joe Budden are not there yet, I'll give you that much! But please don't be a simple minded Wu stan! Just for the record I love Wu, but not blindly!

    I don't get it? Heav had pneumonia and there was no one close by to care for him. It sounds like something you'd need care around the clock. I'm surprised that there was no one by his side. A heart attack I can understand cuz that's something that is random and can hit at any time.

      A lot of people walk around with pneumonia and think it's a bad cold. That's the reason they named the mild strain walking pneumonia.

    To everyone asking "who is Heavy D.?", do yourself a favor and use this internet right and get some info or go back to listening to Lil Fuckhead and Young Shitlicker. If the music world treats this loss like Gurus passing, I hope his core-fans give him a tribute. This man was relevant to hip-hop.

    It is sad to see some of the negative comments on here. Look I'm a Hip Hop head for real and I was bumpin a lot of Heavy D in my day. In his era artist made their own lane and he blazed a trail which makes him a LEGEND! OK I made some comments during his BET performance and I am ashamed. My condolences go out to his family, friends and fans! I'm headed to itunes now to get the overweight lover in the house. I have albums and tapes of the Legend but I'm about to get digital. Anybody who got something to say Youtube "Don't Curse" and you will see a glimpse of his greatness! R.I.P!

  • John washington jr

    Firt, and foremost my thoughts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones of a rap legend.Even though he didn't garner the prestige that others had received he was a giant in rap.Yes I said rap not hip hop this time and era was and still is and always be what a lyricist is being about not talking that's what hip hop is mostly about now talking some try to rap but mostly talking about the drugs that some still use or sell the cars, women and other stupid crap that's making them money but half of this crap wouldn't hold there weight back in the gap when real lyricist would have eaten up have of these fake ass out today.If u care remember how rap not hip hop got started embrace it. Then u will know how a man like Heavy D was an influence. Now for the ass clowns that are making these derogatory remarks I don't blame u I blame your mama for trying to raise supposedly a man but all he is is a stupid SOB who's man objective is to be a damn fool instead of being a positive role model. But the half of them can't because the role models they follow are the ones they see tatted up and full of drugs.Again truly RAP has loss another soldier but the memories and the music he left will not be forgotten.RIP THE OVERWEIGHT LOVER HEAVY D.

      Idiot!And you wonder why people say rap sucks it's because of stupid idiots like you saying stupid stuff about your whack artist bigging him up when a influential rapper died. Hip hop heads know other than the Fat Boys, Heavy D made it cool to be big and be proud of it.Also he had his own style and was original not like these whack artists like wayne who bite but then have the nerve to say he's the greatest he only average face it.It just that unlike back in the day where you had options on what to listen to, the radio,media, and internet big up these phonies over real hip hop brainwashing you idiots who think wayne is great.He not even top 50 in my book.Heavy D made music for the masses true but also for real hip hop heads like me which is rarely done nowadays. That's why Heavy D will be missed. So for all yall newbies who never heard Heavy D spit keep your comments to yourself because you don't even know what you're even talking about.Now Dig that. Heavy D you'll missed brother. RIP
