44 is too young to die but God had other plans for Dwight Errington Myers, better known to us as Heavy D. He died on Tuesday in his Beverly Hills home, according to media reports, though it’s not clear what the cause of death was.
Heavy D is best known for hip hops hits such as “Mr. Big Stuff,” “The Overweight Lover’s in the House,” “Somebody for Me” and “We Got Our Own Thang” and more popularly, the theme song for popular TV show “In Living Color.”
What is most interesting to me is that within 24 hours of Heavy D’s untimely death, he tweeted,
“BE INSPIRED!” In his honor and memory, I do believe I will. You’ll be missed, Heavy. We got nuttin but love for you, baby.
By the way, you can see Heavy D make cameo appearance in Tower Heist, a new movie starring Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller.
