Just unbelievable. The guy appeared to be a perfect picture of good health.

It makes you put life in perspective. We could be here today and

gone tomorrow. Heavy just seemed like a cool dude anyone could talk to.

Samuel L. Jackson wrote, “Ahhh man! Heavy D?! Dwight wz a dear friend. Fond memories of a truly cool brutha.”

Keri Hilson added, “RIP Heavy D. Glad I had the pleasure of meeting you. In your words, ‘I got nuthin but love for ya.’ Prayers to his family & friends.”

Alyssa Milan recalled, “Heavy D gave me advice when I was pregnant. He said, ‘Cherish every single moment. It goes by way too fast’. Rest in peace, Heavy D.”

Nicki Minaj said, “We’ll never forget you babe!”

The Rock quoted the singer, “Once you’re hip hop, you’re hip hop. It’s in my blood – it’s not going anywhere.”

Carson Daly expressed, “So sad to hear about heavy d. His music was my upbringing. I’m so glad I got to tell him when I saw him at the voice live shows in june.”

MC Hammer remembered, “We had a lot of great times touring together. He had a Heart of Gold. He was a part of what’s good about the world.”

Wilmer Valderrama felt, “We have lost another member of Hip Hop”s legacy, a TRUE Rap legend.”

Joel Madden tweeted, “Heavy D was a truly positive and uplifting man. Rest in peace Heavy. Its a very Sad day today.”

John Legend noted, “I’m so sad about Hev. He really was a wonderful person.”

“I am deeply saddened by the sudden loss of Heavy D. A long time friend and a beautiful person,” wrote Russell Simmons.

LL Cool J asked, “May GOD embrace the soul of Heavy D and Bless his family. I respected you Heavy and I always will.

MARY HASN'T SAID ANYTHING YET!!! I'll wait though...

It's possible. Uptown help nourished Mary J. and Heavy D was definitely a part of her development.

I still jam off of the Nuttin but love album. The Got me waiting remix is the business.

I always liked Heavy's vibe, so smooth, so much fun.

God rest his soul.

Keep It COmin

"Forget batman, I guess it's fatman forever.."

And I found him very handsome. Not usually my style, but he was a cutie. He was adorable as Regine's man on Living Single.

Just saw touching tweets from Questlove, Jazzy Jeff and Q Tip.

Yeah they've got to be in shock. He had a huge hand w/ Uptown...K-Ci Hailey said if it wasn't for Heavy there wouldn't have been Jodeci!

Thanks for posting "Just Coolin'" that is MY SHIT as far as Heavy D. verses go.

I am speechless. Heavy D. was the man.

I can remember sitting up late at night after being out partying watching the Self-Destruction video for the very first time on some late night video channel in LA over my homeboy's Moms crib. Remember the first time I saw it like it was yesterday. EVERYBODY was dope but Heavy D's verse was the best one.

I think I saw Heavy D. on the Budweiser Superfest in 1991 at the L.A. Coliseum but I cannot remember all who was on the bill...BUT what I DO remember FOR SURE is that somewhere around April of 1988 I heard "Don't You Know" by Heavy D. on KISS-FM in New York City RIGHT BEFORE I heard "It Takes Two" by Rob Base for the VERY FIRST TIME. I shall NEVER forget that Sunday evening as long as I live. It tripped me out hearing Heavy D. doing a ballad, and then hearing what will always be to me one of the greatest hip-hop records EVER for the first time. Just as he introduced the world to "In Living Color" every weekend, he introduced me to "It Takes Two."

Heavy you were an INTEGRAL part of arguably the most important musical wave ever.

You opened every Sunday the greatest television show of all of time. I hope you they gave you an Emmy somewhere along the way - you surely deserved it.

Love you brother - see you on the other side!

I don't think twitter means anything or even speaking out. They could be upset or speaking to his family in private. They don't need to speak out for the public to hear.

That's true. Guess I was just a little upset but you're right, it don't really mean much.
