Headline: RIP Heavy D.
Sadly, Heavy D. (aka Dwight Arrington Myers) passed away today from respiratory issues. He was only 44. Thankfully the world was graced with a rare appearance by Heavy a few weeks ago at the BET Hip Hop awards. It was his first live performance in 15 years and the big man didn’t miss a step.
Heavy’s biggest success came in the heydays of 80s and 90s hip hop with three platinum and two gold records to his credit. He also created the epic TV theme songs for In Living Color and MadTV. But the man didn’t just make music for TV he also had a successful acting career which started with A Different World – the Cosby Show Spin-off. In recent years acting became his focus – he’s even in the current box office hit Tower Heist along side Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy.
