[photogallerylink id=65370 align=left][lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Heavy D[/lastfm], who could probably be labled as one of the most influential rappers of the ’90s, passed suddenly earlier today. He was 44.

According to TMZ:

Heavy D  was rushed to an L.A. hospital around noon today … and was pronounced dead at the hospital at 1 PM. He was 44 years old.

We’ve learned a 911 call was placed from Heavy’s Beverly Hills home around 11:25 AM to report an unconscious male on the walkway .

When help arrived, we’re told Heavy D was conscious and speaking — and was transported to a nearby hospital.

He died a short time later.

Cops are investigating the death — and so far, there are no obvious signs of foul play.
