Documentary On Life Of Rapper Heavy D To Air

09:01 AM Thursday 2/23/12 | |

The story of late rap pioneer Heavy D will be chronicled in a documentary airing Sunday on Centric TV.

“Be Inspired: The Life of Heavy D” will feature interviews with the Jamaican-born rapper’s family and artists such as Will Smith, Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah, according to Centric TV, the 24-hour channel that is part of the BET Network.

Heavy D, whose given name was Dwight Myers, is considered one of the most influential rap artists of the late 1980s and early 1990s, both as the front man for his group, Heavy D and The Boyz, and as a solo artist. He died last November at age 44, from a blood clot in his lung.

Centric said the documentary includes footage from Heavy D’s last televised performance, at the BET Hip-Hop Awards last October.

In addition to building his own successful music career, Myers was a big part of the careers of other black artists. Queen Latifah discusses in the documentary being mentored by Myers. Myers also was a record label executive who hired Sean “Diddy” Combs as an intern, and was producer to other rappers, such as Jay-Z.

Myers’ talents went beyond the studio to the theater and television. He appeared in “The Tracy Morgan Show”, “Law and Order”, “Boston Public” and other shows. He most recently played a courthouse guard in “Tower Heist.”
