 Heavy D’s Cause Of Death Revealed


The untimely death of rapper Heavy D was due to pulmonary embolism caused by deep leg vein thrombosis, reports TMZ. It appears that the beloved rapper had a blood clot (a thrombus) in his leg that traveled up to his lungs, blocking blood flow to his heart.

Days before his death—on Novemmber 9, 2011—the veteran rapper had returned from Europe after performing at a Michael Jackson tribute concert. Blood clots in the leg  can occur during long flights. Another possible factor in Hev’s death is that he suffered from heart disease, according to the LA Coroner.

Rest In Power Heavy D.
