We now know how celebrated rapper Heavy D died.
From the HuffPost:
The self-proclaimed “overweight lover” of hip hop, who became one of rap’s top hit makers with a combination of humor and positivity, collapsed outside his Beverly Hills home on Nov. 8. The 44-year-old rapper, whose real name was Dwight Errington, died later at a hospital.
Coroner’s office spokesman, Craig Harvey, said Tuesday that weight and a transcontinental jet flight were contributing factors.
The cause of death was pulmonary embolism and deep leg vein thrombosis. He also had arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease.he
