We've just learned that rapper Heavy D has died.


TMZ is reporting that the 44-year old was found unconscious in a hallway of his Beverly Hills home this morning. When paramedics arrived he was awake and talking. He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.



Heavy D rose to prominence in the late 80's and early 90's with hits like "The Overweight Lover's in the House", "Now That We Found Love" and many more.



He performed a medley of hits at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards just last month.



Rest in peace to a hip hop legend.
