Personal Quote:

I was in California the first time I heard Michael Jackson wanted to record with me. I was, like, 'Nah, no way, he's too big, it can't be true.' Then I got a call from Michael's people at my hotel telling me he was interested. But I still wasn't believing it - I thought they were setting me up for a TV practical jokes show. See more »

Trivia:

The Los Angeles coroner's office said that Heavy D died of natural causes. The cause of his death was a pulmonary embolism and deep-leg vein thrombosis. He also had arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease. See more »
