Heavy D Has Passed Away

November 8, 2011 / Posted by:

Heavy D, the former leader of Heavy D and the Boyz, died suddenly at around 1pm in L.A. this afternoon after he was found lying unconscious in front of his house. There aren’t many details, but TMZ says that he was breathing and talking when ambulances arrived. But by the time they got him to the hospital, he had already floated up to the great big limousine in the sky. Heavy D was only 44.

Heavy D and the Boyz’s first album came out in 1987, but he really filled a million ear drums with “Now That We Found Love” in 1991. Heavy D also performed the theme songs for both In Living Color and MADtv. When he wasn’t making music, he acted in TV shows like Roc and in movies like The Cider House Rules and Tower Heist (yes, I’m already blaming Brett Ratner for this).

Since nowadays our final Tweet is our final public word, here’s Heavy D’s:

Rest in peace, Heavy D.
