Heavy D R.I.P. - Dead at the Age of 44


Heavy D R.I.P. - Dead at the Age of 44

The first source for this news item is Grandmaster Flash on Twitter and the second is TMZ.com. We've quoted from the latter below.

"Rap legend Heavy D -- one of the most influential rappers of the '90s -- died earlier today ... TMZ has learned.

Heavy D -- real name Dwight Arrington Myers -- was rushed to an L.A. hospital around noon today ... and was pronounced dead at the hospital at 1 PM. He was 44 years old.

We've learned a 911 call was placed from Heavy's Beverly Hills home around 11:25 AM to report an unconscious male on the walkway .

When help arrived, we're told Heavy D was conscious and speaking -- and was transported to a nearby hospital.

He died a short time later.

Cops are investigating the death -- and so far, there are no obvious signs of foul play.

Heavy D had several massive hits -- including "Now That We Found Love." He also wrote and performed the theme song for "In Living Color" ... and appeared as an actor in the movie "Life."

Heavy just performed at the Michael Jackson Tribute Concert in Wales on October 8. He sang "Jam" with La Toya Jackson -- and rocked it."

Hope this email finds you in good health and great spirits. Fresh off the heels of its release, the first single, Way of Love (Never out of Season) off my forthcoming EP - Southpaw made its way on DJBooth.net a prestigious hip hop blog that features the best new and current artists. As such we have a unique opportunity to reach a broader group of people if we can get it to the top of the weekly charts on the site. So if you haven't listened to the track yet, here's your second chance LOL.

It features production by Grammy nominated producer Lex Luger as well as guest appearances from Pusha-T, Lupe Fiasco, Ace Hood, and Tech N9ne.

While Durte Musik Prahduckshun‘s last feature found them grappling with the squawks and pecks of Angry Birds, the proverbial fury of women scorned isn’t enough to keep the crew from seeking out their company (and, occasionally, scorning them). D.M.P.‘s latest single, making its world premiere as entry #13 in DJBooth and Event Electronics’ 20/20 Music Series, finds the Nottz-fronted ensemble detailing what fellas will go through To Be Loved.

Over the heavyweight producer's eccentrically catchy beat, sampled from an unknown rendition of Jackie Wilson's classic song of the same title, emcees Bigshot Manceeni, Cutlass Reid, Khizman, Starboy, Ivory Keyes and Boogie deliver a series of colorful vignettes involving two-timing men, two-timing women, devious foreign exchange students, massive cucumbers and everything in between. While this joint isn't attached to any larger release, those digging it should stay tuned for further news and tunes from D.M.P. Fans can look forward to further entries in the Event 20/20 Music Series over the course of November.

Earlier this year, Event Electronics debuted their 20/20BAS monitors, the latest version of a product whose music industry legacy stretches back to 1995. Now, DJBooth.net has come together with the audio equipment manufacturer to offer one lucky reader the chance to upgrade his/her studio with their very own set of the speakers, hailed by our staff reviewer as "[delivering] impeccable sound without any bells, whistles or glitz," along with a Rode/Event Prize Pack that includes a Rode M1 Mic. Twenty runners-up will also receive prize packs. To enter, simply log into Facebook or Twitter using the links above.
