Heavy D, born Dwight Arrington Myers, died at the age of 44 last Tuesday (November 8). The rap legend complained of shortness of breath before being rushed to the hospital. It has been said Heav was suffering from a pesky cough that could have been pneumonia, but those reports haven’t been confirmed.—Jakinder Singh
