Heavy D

Legendary rapper Heavy D jacked alt-rock band Cake for "Guns and Roses," the definite standout among his few production credits. Hev launched a comeback last year, releasing a new album, Love Opus, and performing at the BET Hip Hop Awards in October. But it was tragically short-lived—Heavy died of a pulmonary embolism just nine days later, at the age of 44.
