Rapper Heavy D was pronounced dead Tuesday at the emergency room at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after collapsing outside his Beverly Hills home, authorities said.

Authorities were called to the 400 block of North Maple Drive about 11:25 a.m. after a report that a  man in his 40s was unconscious in a walkway near a building, said Beverly Hills Police Lt. Mark Rosen.

When they arrived, they found the man conscious and breathing and took him to the hospital.

Rosen did not identify Heavy D as the victim. But another law enforcement source confirmed it was the 44-year-old rapper, whose real name is Dwight Arrington Myers.

    Let’s see -Gerald & Sean Levert -Nate Dogg -Michael J and now Heavy D..
    All young men who have died in their 40’s except for Michael J which he was early 50’s.
    I don’t want to speculate on Heavy D -but i would say probably heart related..
    We have to be more vigilante about our health…
