As you know Heavy D passed away not too long ago, but his cause of death was never revealed, until now. The legendary rapper died from pulmonary embolism caused by deep leg vein thombrosis. The condition stems from blockage of arteries in the lungs and is usually caused by blood clots that travel throughout the body. This condition usually occurs from long periods of immobility meaning Heavy D wasn’t being very active physically in his life. Heavy D also suffered from heart disease and was only 44.
UK’s Guardian reports about Amy Winehouse:
“She had consumed sufficient alcohol at 416 mg per deciliter [of blood] and the unintended consequence of such potentially fatal levels was her sudden and unexpected death.”
South African artist and Dj Leon Botha died June 5th in Cape Town at age 26 years of age. Botha has been living with the disease progeria for a while now which is why he looks so much older than he is. He has also been failing health ever since he had a stroke earlier this year.
