We’ve just learned that rapper Heavy D has died.
TMZ is reporting that the 44-year old was found unconscious in a hallway in his Beverly Hills home. When paramedics arrived he was awake and talking. He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Heavy D rose to prominence in the late 80′s and early 90′s with hits like “The Overweight Lover’s in the House”, “Now That We Found Love” and many more.
He performed a medley of hits at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards last month.
Rest in peace to a hip hop legend.
