Fans wanting to honor the late Heavy D can do so this week.

 

While the family waits for the autopsy results to confirm the cause of the 44-year-old’s death, AllHipHop.com reports the viewing will take place this Thursday, Nov. 17, from noon to 6 p.m.

 

The private funeral, which will be open to close family and friends only, is set for Friday, Nov. 18.


Both services will take place in the rapper’s hometown in Mount Vernon, NY.


Instead of flowers, the family is said to be asking for donations to the Heavy D and Xea Myers Fund.


As of today, it is believed the Overweight Lover was battling a respiratory illness following a recent performance in London.


Heavy D died Nov. 8 after collapsing in his L.A. home.
