Remembering Heavy D

Born Dwight Arrington Myers (May 24, 1967 – November 8, 2011) Heavy D’s legacy continues on.

Social media and radio stations are celebrating Heavy D’s  legacy playing his hits, sharing stories and reminiscing the love we all had for such a special talent. Four years ago today, November 8th 2011, the self-proclaimed “overweight lover” passed away at 44.

One person tweeted “we celebrate Hev’s life, listen to your favorite Heavy D song and play it loud” friends, fans and celebrities share their memories of Heavy D.

One post in particular caught our attention, AB Butler a friend of Heavy D shared a post.

Most people knew Heavy D as a rapper, producer and entertainer – not only did his talent contribute to hip hop but he was the one of first rapper to cross into the mainstream music and the pop world when he began working with Janet and Michael Jackson. I can talk all day about all of his accolades and achievement, but what makes me the most proud is how he loved life, his daughter and family! He was a friend, son, father and a very good dude! He always wanted others to be inspired and enjoy life. His smile and laughter lit up any room- God knows his death shocked us all, I remember feeling so sick when he passed. Death is something we have limited control over. But love is something we have total control of, and Heav showed “Nuttin But Love” to everyone he encountered. It’s important to spread love, be kind and give back to this world. His contribution, his music and his soul will always live on. Rest In Peace, Heavy ! I love you my brother. #MoneyEarningMtVernon #HeavyD #RIP
