The Entertainment Industry, stars, fans, friends and family of Dwight Arrington Myers, bka "Heavy D" are still reeling from his sudden death...It seems he was poised for a comeback, potentially courting thirty-something year old hip-hop fans...Standing 6'3" and usually weighing in over 300 lbs, he had managed to shed 150 lbs in 2005 for the lead role for a Will Smith production, "Medal of Honor Rag"...You can see in the photo above how much lighter he looked in 2008... But you will see in the report below from ABC News that last month, October 2011, when he performed, at the BET Hip-Hop Awards, for the first time in over 15 years that he had regained a lot of the lost weight...
