Rapper and actor Heavy D., real name Dwight Arrington Myers, has passed away at the age of 44.

According to TMZ, who broke the story, 911 was called to his home in Beverly Hills, Dwight was unconscious outside his house as someone placed the call.

When paramedics arrived, Dwight was conscious and speaking.  He was taken to a local hospital where 90 minutes after the 911 call, he was pronounced dead.

Dwight was just in the movie “Tower Heist” with Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller and had been creating new material this year.  He also performed last month at the Michael Jackson concert with Latoya Jackson.  He rapped to the song “Jam” which he recorded with Michael back in the 90’s.

Per information provided by police, there is no foul play concerning his death and the police are at his residence performing a search.

In recent years, Heavy was not so heavy, as he lost weight a couple of years ago, where he looked like he could be Eric Benet’s brother.

He did gain the weight back over the past 2 years.  We are in shock to hear of his passing as he always seemed to be full of love and life.-DocFB
