Rapper Heavy D Passed Away

It has just been reported that rapper Heavy whose real name was Dwight Arrington Myers has passed away.

According to reports, Heavy D was reportedly rushed to a hospital this afternoon after a 911 call was made from his Beverly Hills home. Officials tell TMZ that no foul play is suspected, and they are investigating the death.

Heavy D was known for his 1991 hit "Now That We Found." He also just performed at two special events last month: the Michael Jackson tribute concert in Wales and the BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta.

Update: Nov. 9th, 11:58 a.m.

TMZ has spoken with law enforcement who gave them a more detailed account of Heavy D’s last moments:
"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.”
