MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. (AP) — A private funeral will be held Friday in Mount Vernon for hip-hop star Heavy D, who died last week at a Los Angeles hospital after collapsing outside his home. He was 44. His family said he died of complications from pneumonia.

Diddy, the Rev. Al Sharpton and singer Anthony Hamilton are among those expected to pay tribute to the influential rapper, known for hits like "The Overweight Lover's in the House" and "Now That We Found Love."

Heavy D was born in Jamaica but was raised in Mount Vernon, just north of New York City.

He often mentioned Mount Vernon in his rhymes, and had proudly claimed the city as "Money Earnin' Mount Vernon."

DERRIK J. LANG, The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — It was as if Heavy D knew that it would be his last tweet.

The self-proclaimed "overweight lover" of hip hop, who became one of rap's top hit makers with his charming combination of humor and positivity, enthusiastically told his Twitter followers Tuesday morning to "BE INSPIRED!"

He later collapsed outside his Beverly Hills home following a shopping trip, unable to breathe, before he was transported to a nearby hospital where he died. He was 44. Detectives found no signs of foul play and believe his death was medically related, said police Lt. Mark Rosen.

"BE INSPIRED!" was typical of the positive tweets Heavy D would send, and as his final tweet, it was fitting for the life that Heavy D lived.

The Jamaica-born rapper, who grew up in New York, became one of the genre's most integral stars in the late 1980s and early 1990s, as it relied on new voices and star power to fuel its phenomenal growth in the mainstream. Heavy D and his crew — Heavy D and the Boyz — unabashedly burst onto the rap scene in 1987 with their debut album "Living Large."

The deep-voiced rapper's earliest hit, "The Overweight Lover's in the House," played up his hefty frame. But while that nickname would stick, his weight did not become his shtick like the Fat Boys. What drew people to his music was his singular style celebrating an easygoing, party vibe — sometimes humorous, sometimes inspiring and usually positive.

Combined with the fusion of the "New Jack Swing" musical style, Heavy D was a constant presence on the charts, and a go-to figure for several performers. He collaborated with Michael Jackson on the 1991 single "Jam," rapped with a young Notorious B.I.G. in 1993 on "A Buncha N-----" and dueted with B.B. King on the 1997 tune "Keep It Coming."

Heavy D, who was never afraid to bust a move or perform as a character, also found success on the screen. He created the theme songs for the sketch comedy shows "In Living Color" and "MADtv" and acted on such TV shows as "Boston Public," ''The Tracy Morgan Show" and "Law & Order: SVU," as well as in the films "Life," ''Step Up" and most recently "Tower Heist."

While switching between acting and performing in the late 1990s, Heavy D wasn't as musically successful with his later Boyz-free albums. He attempted a reggae-fueled comeback in 2008 with the album "Vibes," which didn't contain any rapping, before he returned to his lyrical roots on his most recent effort, "Love Opus," which was released in September.

A lighter Heavy D — coming in at apparently 135 pounds less than his former weight — returned to the stage for a pair of energetic performances last month. He delivered a medley of past hits at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta, and joined La Toya Jackson on stage for a rendition of "Jam" at the tribute concert for Michael Jackson in Cardiff, Wales.

The impact of Heavy D's inspiration was omnipresent Tuesday among the hip-hop community on Twitter. His sudden death prompted "Law & Order" actor and rapper Ice T to remind everyone to "stop for a second, take a breath and realize how lucky you are to be alive," while reminding MC Hammer that Heavy D was always "part of what's good about the world."

Didn't know you Mr. Heavy, but from the little I have seen of your interviews and performances, you were a stand up guy who raised the "Flag" or lets say you assisted in helping to raise the "Standard" very high for other artists. Your character and integrity that manifested through your life was a light in a very dark Arena called Rap! Thanks for helping the younger ones to know that Rap can be clean and honorable. RIP. Much love to your family and especially your daughter.

Goodbye Dwight "Heavy D". You will be missed immensely :( You are not only remembered for blending R&B and Hip Hop to create your own sound but you broke down the barriers of what society and Hollywood expected artists to look like which is stick figure women and muscle bound men. You showed the rest of the world that "heavy" people are just as talented if not more talented.

You weren't only large in size and stature but you were larger than life and you are surely missed.

I remember back in the early to mid '90s working in a hair salon in MetroFit Athletic Club in Pelham, NY. Heavy D and his crew, dancers,including Big Lez would come there and use the studio facilities to practice their choreography. Met him in passing and he was very humble and kind. I was in awe. He kindly said "hello, how you doin'" and went about his business. Great man. Great energy. He will be missed but we will see him again.

*** Remembering the day I met Heavy D.....my heart is HEAVY. Every time I see his face, I always think of that day. ***

Date: 7/30/88
Location: The Radisson Hotel, Columbia SC after his concert with Salt N Pepa.
My age: 16, His age: 21

My mom allowed me to attend the Salt N Pepa concert with Frances, her sister, and Tonya. A hometown friend got us the hookup on a room at the Radisson Hotel. To our surprise, Salt, Pepa, and Spinderella's rooms were on the same floor as ours. An even better surprise: Heavy D's room was diagonal.only a few feet away! So of course as teenagers we did what most teenagers would do.....lounge in the hallway to get his autograph. After lounging for a few, Heavy D's door opened. There stood Heavy D.the overweight lover in the house! We all took in a deep breath, while blocking him from exiting his room. Heavy D briefly gazed the crowd and stood there mesmerized (so we thought) by a girl with us who happened to be smoking a cigarette. I'll call her X. X was a pretty girl who most guys were attracted to. Of course we figured he was too. Anyway, in a polite, sweet, soft tone, Heavy D asked her name. She told him. He then opened his room door and motioned for her to go in. We all were now SCARED! What was she going to do? What was he planning to do to her? We all just stood there...FROZEN! As she entered the door, he said," Ms. 'X', can you please put out that cigarette? The sink is right there (pointing at it). Oh boy, you should have seen the embarassment on her face! She was TOTALLY embarrassed. Yet, she did so and exited the room. Heavy D closed the door behind her and gazed the crowd again to ensure we were all " in check". We were. He then chatted with us, signed autographs, and went his merry way.

Twenty three years later, I still remember that day. Heavy D was and will always be looked upon by me as a true citizen, a man of respect, a man with dignity. He was not the typical famous singer, rapper, or entertainer. He recognized someone doing wrong and did his part to correct the situation without disrespecting himself or anyone.

RIP Heavy D! You were the Heavyweight LOVER who not only loved YOU. This simple encounter with you exemplified that you truly LOVED PEOPLE!

I've loved and enjoyed Heav's music from the very beginning w/ Mr. Big Stuff. He was such an awesome entertainer and my heart was broken when I heard of his premature passing. He always made me want to dance and rap right along with him. He was skilled and I loved to watch him dance. May Peace reign on his family and know that he is rough and tough and all that stuff in the kingdom, making people smile. Much Love.

I was devastated when i heard the news about Heavy D's passing. He was a beautiful person, a fantastic perfomer/entertainer, rapper. He was not one of those rappers that uses foul language or degrade women or rap about voilence or drugs etc. He was a positive rapper. His music was fun, the kind of music to just dance to and have fun,even with your kids. I only wish todays' rappers were more like Heavy D. I hope his legacy will live on in up and coming rappers, to be positive, keep it clean, no need for all the profanities. Heavy D, you are truly going to be missed. R.I.P. may God bless your family.

Will always remember Heavy with Maxi Priest in Manhattan; Heavy in Brooklyn, da Bronx and with SuperCat, the Boys and his wonderful mom. How he gave shout-outs to Jamaica,Big-up reggae and glamorized his "overweight" status. He danced as if he was 90 pounds and onstage with Laurence Fishburne he was "Top Dog." He was missed when he left "money-making Mount Vernon" and will be more missed now. RIP my friend.

I had the biggest crush on Heavy D every since he first appeared on the music scene. He was my overweight lover. Wheneve I was out and I heard one of his songs playing I couldn't help but jump up and dance to his music. He will always be my favorite rapper. Black Coffee, No Sugar No Cream.

God has yet called another angel home to finalize a life with him. HEAVY "D" has inspired so many people in this industry and in my eyes he gives his best performance and great words on encouragement before his final farewell. You "Heavy D" are indeed an overweight lover in the house. Rest in peace my friend, to the family remember God don't take no mess, he wants only the best! He lived an INSPIRING life. Mine is one that he inspired. Peace, Love and Blessing to you.
