Rapper/Actor Dwight "Heavy D" Myers (May 24-67-November 8-2011) passed away today at the tender age of 44. Heavy D' as he was known to his legion of fans, he was the lovable overweight lover in the house, who could dance his ass off. The rapper was found laying on the sidewalk outside of his home in Beverly Hills. The irony is that he was poised for a tremendous comeback, still riding on his powerhouse performance at BET's Hip Hop Awards, he was the headliner who closed the show out featuring his greatest hits like "Nuttin But Love For You", "Now That We Found Love", "Is It Still Good To Ya", "Somebody To Love Me For Me" and "Over Weight Lover".
He was a trailblazer with a rapping style unparalleled, and slang street creed that others are still biting to this day. Rest Easy Mr. Bum-Diddleee D as I wish you a "Peaceful Journey" .... say hello to Trouble T-Roy, your work is done!
