Sources say Heavy D was walking up a couple stairs but leaned against a railing then began to look distressed as if he could not breathe. They say he may have had a heart attack, but no foul play was involved. His weight may have been an issue as he was 300 lbs when he died, further investigations are under way.

  2. >Aww this one really hurt! He was def a positive role model growing up! He did what he loved and never tried to conform to what was the current trend he was just HEAVY D <3 … For that I looked up to him because he proved that being who you are destined to become and loving who YOU are is success enough! May he forever rest in peace! He touched sooo many lives so his LEGACY will forever live on! #Salute <3 *RiP*
