"Heavy D Dead"Rapper Heavy D found dead earlier today, Tuesday, November 8 at the Beverly Hills, California resident. He was 44 years old.

The large-and-in-charge rhyme, who had performed at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta last month, died in Los Angeles on Tuesday after being taken to a hospital. He rose to repute with a string of hits in the late ’80s and early ’90s.

Born Dwight Arrington Myers, Heavy D was rushed to Los Angeles hospital around noon and was obvious dead at the hospital at 1 p.m. While the cause of death is not so far known, the rapper was rushed to the hospital around noon, after paramedics responded to a call placed from his Beverly Hills home.

Apparently reactive, when the medic’s team arrived, he was pronounced dead a short time later. The rapper’s death comes nearly a month, after a return performance at the 2011 BET Hip-Hop Awards, where he toured through a medley of his best-known singles, among them ‘Now That We Found Love’ and ‘Is It Good to You.’

Heavy D’s last track was released in 1991, and was the old-school MC’s highest-charting solo single. A season earlier, he rapped on a remix of Janet Jackson’s ‘Alright,’ which reached number 4 position.

Janet was not the only Jackson to use Heavy D’s talents, and in 1992, Michael Jackson has tapped the rapper for ‘Jam,’ a famous hit on the hip-hop and dance charts list.

Heavy D appeared in a number of movies that includes The Cider House Rules,’ ‘The Tower Heist’ and ‘Life,’ and his TV work included turns on ‘Living Single,’ ‘The Tracy Morgan Show’ and ‘Boston Public.’
