RIP Heavy D UPDATE: Cause of death now known.

I’m a child of the ’80s, so I’m shocked and saddened to learn that Heavy D passed away Tuesday, November 8, 2011. Apparently, he had been battling pneumonia, although an exact cause of death is not known at this time. My prayers go out to his family and friends.

Here are the headlines:
