Rapper Heavy D recently passed at the age of 44 in Los Angeles due to complications from pneumonia.
On Thursday, November 17th, friends and celebrities took to the 2011 Soul Train Music Awards to remember the self-proclaimed “Overweight Lover”. “That was just a good man. I know people know him as an artist, but that was a great man we lost so suddenly” said, Marsha Ambrosius.
Its clear that Heavy’s untimly death took a toll on all of us in some form or another, but after speaking to everyone on the red carpet I realized just how many lives he really touched and the lives he influenced.
Don’t forget to catch the 2011 Soul Train Music Awards tonight as they pay tribute to Heavy D, with a group performance by Kurtis Blow, Naughty by Nature, Big Daddy Kane, Doug E. Fresh, and Cee-Lo.
