    Heavy D, one of the more pop- and R&B-oriented rappers of the early ’90s, was known for songs like “Now That We Found Love" with his group Heavy D & the Boyz, for his collaborations with performers like Michael Jackson, and also for his physical size.
    In later years he moved on to acting, most recently as a guard in the movie “Tower Heist.” But he performed as a rapper as recently as the 2011 BET Awards this summer.

    A Different World Episode #50, Season 3
    Ron takes a liking to his study partner, Elizabeth; and is surprised to learn that she has a 13-month-old son. He is unsure about getting involved, but quickly bonds with the child. Believing that the boy needs a positive male role model, Ron tries a little too hard to step in and become a father figure. Dwayne arranges a performance by his old friends Heavy D & the Boyz for a charity concert. Whitley, who had hoped to bring in an opera company, organizes an anti-rap protest. She makes a fool of herself by espousing her views to Heavy D, unaware of his identity. Heavy eventually wins Whitley over, and the gang joins him onstage to dance during the show.

    Heavy D, the smooth-talking and cheerful rapper who billed himself as “the overweight lover M.C.,” died in Los Angeles on Tuesday. He was 44.
    The Los Angeles County coroner’s office confirmed the death Tuesday evening, saying that Heavy D had collapsed at his home and was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he died shortly after noon. The cause of death was not known as of Tuesday night, but the coroner’s office said that there was no evidence of foul play and that the death appeared to be “medically related.”
