Rapper/Actor Heavy D Dies at 44
The Hip Hop and Hollywood community has lost another great entertainer. According to Rolling Stone, “the rapper was rushed to a hospital in Los Angeles and was pronounced dead at 1 p.m. PT. Police are investigating his death but there are no signs of foul play.”
I remember listening to him on my Walkman when I was a kid and seeing him on In Living Color with Keenan Ivory Wayans doing the opening theme! I used to love watching his videos with him dancing all around, despite his size, and keeping up with the Boyz (his backup dancers)!
His break out hit “Now that We Found Love” was an all-time hit and had ALL the girls liking chubby, light-skinned brothers for a LONG time! What was your favorite HEAVY D song?
