Heavy D

Though Heavy D debuted in the '80s, he was a key force in rap's crossover the following decade via pop hits like "Now That We Found Love" and "Nuttin' But Love." In 2011, just 10 days after rocking a comeback performance at the BET Hip Hop Awards, Heavy passed away suddenly due to a pulmonary embolism.
