Beloved Rapper Heavy D Dies At 44
It saddens me to have to report something like this. Actor, rapper, record producer, singer Heavy D inspired and touched the hearts of many through genuine character, raw talent and showmanship. Jamaican born, Heavy D aka Dwight Arrington Myers (May 24, 1967 – November 8, 2011) also hailed from the same family that gave the world iconic hip hop veterans Pete Rock and Grand Puba. He inspired the "Large and In Charge" men of the world to be more confident in their appearance and be viewed as ladies men. There was a reason that Biggie shouted Heavy D out in his classic aspirational song "Juicy". Heavy D has departed before he had a chance to fully share his new album "Love Opus". I played his first single "Love In A Bottle" on the last episode of THEZROHOUR. Below is the next single featuring Anthony Hamilton that just came in today. We will always remember "The Overweight Lover"...
