Heavy D will be remembered by many music fans for his classic songs like “Don’t Curse”, “Now That We’ve Found Love” and “Mr. Big Stuff.” But Dwight Myers was one of the first rappers to make the leap to Hollywood.

The Jamaican born artist put his hometown of Mt. Vernon on the map musically but tinsel town loved him just the same. One of his first small screen appearances was on an episode of “A Different World” as himself and as Fatz Turner  on the TV series “Booker.” His most recent role on the big screen was in the Eddie Murphy and Ben Stiller comedy Tower Heist.
