Yesterday, the world said their last goodbye to one of Hip-Hop’s pioneers, Heavy D. As we all know, Heavy D passed away on November 8th, 2011. The funeral was held in Mt Vernon, New York at the Grace Baptist Church. Jay-Z, Denzel Washington, Diddy, Usher and many more are among the many artist, actors, actresses and athletes who attended the funeral. President Obama was not in attendance but he did send a letter showing his respects to the late Heavy D. The letter is below along with pictures from the funeral. Rest In Peace, Heavy D.
We extend our heartfelt condolences at this difficult time. He will be remembered for his infectious optimism and many contributions to American music. Please know that you and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers
