Common & Drake Beef

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Common visited  New York’s Power 105.1 Breakfast Club with Charlamagne The God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy.  He talked about his latest single “So Sweet” from his new album The Dreamer.  When asked if the record was dissing Drake his response, “Yeah, I know, some people have been saying that, but on that song, really, I’m just talking about whoever the cap fits”.

 

As old as beef is in hip hop, Drake had these choice words to say to Common which reminded me of “who mama wear panties, slap my hand”:

Heavy D – Update

Heavy D – Update

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Family members of Heavy D says, he went to the doctor the day before his death.

LOS ANGELES — Rap legend Heavy D knew something was seriously wrong with his health the day before he suddenly collapsed and died Tuesday, officials told the Daily News.

“He had gone to the doctor the day before,” Ed Winter, Assistant Chief of the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office, told the Daily News. “He had what appeared to be like flu-like symptoms.”

Investigators completed an autopsy Wednesday morning, but declined to release a preliminary cause of death, saying that toxicology tests must first be performed. The tests could take up to six weeks to complete.

“He was taking medication, so we want to see what the levels were,” Winter said.

The trailblazing, Westchester County-bred star weighed 344 pounds at the time of his death, Winter said.

“He said he had a touch of pneumonia, maybe from traveling. He just got back from England,” cousin Ruddy Phillips, 50, told The News after speaking with the entertainer’s dad in Mount Vernon, N.Y.

Heavy D, whose real name was Dwight Arrington Myers, was taken by ambulance to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday; he died 90 minutes later, police said.

He was conscious and talking, but having difficulty breathing, when officers first arrived at his home after a 911 call was made, said Lt. Mark Rosen of the Beverly Hills Police Department.

The 44-year-old rapper was returning home from a shopping trip when he experienced shortness of breath and collapsed in an exterior hallway of his condo building, Rosen said.

“There doesn’t appear to be any foul play. We believe it was medically related,” Rosen said.

Born in Jamaica and raised in Mount Vernon, Heavy D rose to stardom in the 1990s as the frontman for the group Heavy D & the Boyz.

Along with bandmates G-Whiz, Trouble T. Roy and Eddie F., he made hip-hop history with hit songs like “Now That We Found Love” and “Nuttin But Love.”

He also performed the theme song for the 1990s comedy TV series “In Living Color” and later segued into acting, scoring small movie roles, including one in the 1999 film “The Cider House Rules.”

He earned a cameo role as a security guard in the just-released film “Tower Heist,” starring Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller.

Heavy D last performed in October, at the BET Awards.

He leaves behind a 13-year-old daughter, with whom he was extremely close, Phillips said.

“He was a really great dad. Everybody is wondering how she’s going to take it now that he’s gone. She loves her dad so much,” Phillips said.

“And his mother is taking it really hard. He’s the third brother in the family to die. Everybody is stunned. No one can believe it. He was so young.”
