According to Billboard, an autopsy has concluded that the Nov. 8 death of large and in charge rapper Heavy D was caused by a pulmonary embolism. We meant that lovingly, since Heavy D was a big man who ran the hip-pop game in the 1990s with his feel-good tuneage.
Heavy D, whose real name was Dwight Arrington Myers, died at 44. He had a blood clot in his lung, according to the coroner's office. The blood clot was "most likely formed during an extended airplane ride," Craig Harvey, chief of the Los Angeles County department of coroner. How sad. Poor Heavy D. We miss him.
The rapper also suffered from deep leg vein thrombosis and heart disease. Earlier reports proved inconclusive and it was thought that the rapper had died of pneumonia when he collapsed at his Beverly Hills home.
We hope this news provides closure for his family. R.I.P. to a legend.
