Dwight Errington Myers
Profile:
Born Dwight Errington Myers (May 24, 1967 - November 8, 2011), was born in Jamaica. Heavy D was raised in the Bronx, where he began to experiment with rap and rhyme at the age of eight. By the time he had reached high school, he had summoned a friend, DJ Eddie F, to help him write songs. Heavy D. and the Boyz (Eddie, G-Wiz and Trouble T-Roy) signed to Uptown in 1986 and released 'Livin' Large' the following year. 'Big Tyme' surfaced in 1989 and produced a platinum hit, "We Got Our Own Thang." The following year, Trouble T-Roy was killed in an accident. Subsequently, Heavy D. released 'Peaceful Journey' in 1992, a tribute to his long-time friend. "Now That We Found Love" went gold that same year. Two gold albums - 1993's 'Blue Funk' and 1994's 'Nuttin' But Love' - kept Heavy D going strong through the '90s. He eventually joined the Uptown Records team and began managing the company before it folded. He also began an acting career. Heavy D's latest album is 1999's 'Heavy', released on Uptown/Universal.

He died on November 8th 2011 after falling down the stairs of his Beverly Hills mansion. He was admitted to an LA hospital at 12pm but was pronounced dead an hour later.
