Yesterday at 6:00 PM I heard the news that Heavy D has died blaring on the Micheal Baisden show. I was floored from the news. Shocked and stunned! The sad news made my eyes begin to tear. It was a feeling sort of like hearing a brother from the old neighborhood has passed away. Heavy D was a very young man. I have not heard nor read anything in the news purporting the legendary hip hop Dwight Arrington Myers had any health issues? I do recall hearing about Heavy D losing weight. No reports that would indicate that Heavy D’s health was in danger? It is baffling news to me considering Heavy is only two years younger than myself. Makes me want to run to the doctor ASAP for my quarterly blood workup.
My sincere condolences go out to the entire Dwight family, his fans and friends. R.I.P. Heavy D. You will be missed but not forgotten.
Mad love is shown, heard and expressed on the cyber-sphere.
Heavy D had just returned from shopping and walked up some stairs when he began having trouble breathing. Adam Mills, a designer who was in the building and knew Heavy D, found him leaning against a railing and clearly in distress. Adam tells us he cradled Heavy D in his lap as others called 911. Adam says Heavy D was conscious and said to him, “I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe.” When paramedics took Heavy D to the hospital he had a pulse. People in the building are saying he died of a heart attack, but we have not been able to confirm that. Law enforcement sources tell us … no foul play was involved and so far they only know the cause of death was “medical.”
