Dwight 'Heavy D' Myers has passed away
« on: November 08, 2011, 07:40:28 PM »
Dwight "Heavy D" Myers, a Jamaican-American rap artist known for a string of hit singles and albums in the 1980s and 1990s, as well as television appearances and theme songs, has passed away at the age of 44.

(Another story here)

From the Rolling Stone article:
Quote
The rapper was rushed to a hospital in Los Angeles earlier this afternoon and was pronounced dead at 1 p.m. PT. Police are investigating his death but there are no signs of foul play.

Rest in peace.  :'(

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

I just announced this horrible on the prayer thread.
God be merciful to us sinners.

May his memory be eternal.  I wasn't a huge fan, but I did enjoy his music and how he kept his lyrics lighter and more fun.

Update: the cause of death has been determined; it was a blood clot.
