Dwight "Heavy D" Myers died at age 44 on Nov. 8, 2011.
According to a report on HuffingtonPost.com, Lt. Mark Rosen of the Beverly Hills police told the Associated Press that Heavy D died in a Los Angeles hospital Tuesday after collapsing at his condominium building.
Rosen said Beverly Hills police officers were dispatched to Heavy D's condominium building Tuesday morning after receiving a report of an unconscious person laying on the walkway of a building. They found Heavy D was conscious and communicative but had difficulty breathing and was transported to Cedars Sinai Medical Center, where he later died.
The police found no signs of foul play.
According to Rosen, Heavy D "was returning home from shopping. He experienced difficulty breathing while walking into his condominium building. He was being assisted up to his apartment by building personnel when he collapsed in an exterior hallway."
A memorial service in his home town of Mt. Vernon, N.Y., was Thursday, Nov. 17. According to a report on Saturday's HuffingtonPost.com and in several EventBug tributes on YouTube, Will Smith, Queen Latifah, Rosie Perez, Jay Z, Diddy, Usher and Don King were among those in attendance. Even President Obama, a fan of Heavy D, sent a letter which was read during the eulogy.
