An agent for Heavy D says the 44-year-old rapper has died.

Andrew Weitz of William Morris Endeavor Entertainment confirmed
the rapper's death in an email Tuesday, without giving a cause of
death or saying where he died.

Dwight Arrington Myers, the rapper known as Heavy D of Heavy D
and the Boyz, and his crew released their debut album "Living Large" in 1987. Their hits included "Now That We Found Love" and "Who's the Man."

In the mid-1990s, Heavy D became president of Uptown Records, the label that released most of his albums and was also the home to
acts like Mary J. Blige and Jodeci.

He released a new album, "Love Opus," in September.
