Heavy D. Dead at 44

http://www.tmz.com/2011/1...vy-d-dead/

Heavy D
Dead at 44
1108_heavyd_EX_02
Rap legend Heavy D -- one of the most influential rappers of the '90s -- died earlier today ... TMZ has learned.

Heavy D -- real name Dwight Arrington Myers -- was rushed to an L.A. hospital around noon today ... and was pronounced dead at the hospital at 1 PM. He was 44 years old.

We've learned a 911 call was placed from Heavy's Beverly Hills home around 11:25 AM to report an unconscious male on the walkway .

When help arrived, we're told Heavy D was conscious and speaking -- and was transported to a nearby hospital.

He died a short time later.

Cops are investigating the death -- and so far, there are no obvious signs of foul play.

Heavy D had several massive hits -- including "Now That We Found Love." He also wrote and performed the theme song for "In Living Color" ... and appeared as an actor in the movie "Life."

Heavy just performed at the BET Awards in October -- and appeared to be fine.

Story developing ...

Heavy just performed at the Michael Jackson Tribute Concert in Wales on October 8. He sang "Jam" with La Toya Jackson -- and rocked it (video below).

Yes, but it's not confirmed. A whole lot of people have been claiming this on Facebook, but I'm not believing it until I get confirmation from a dependable source.

I agree with u. I've read he had some type of infection and I've also read the falling down the stairs synopsis. I'll wait until I get the official word.

He might've been sick with something. sad I saw a picture of him at the BET Awards and he looked like he did in '89... this is shocking.

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.
