Heavy D will be laid to rest at a very private funeral ceremony in New York next Friday — and TMZ has learned only a select number of the rapper’s famous friends have been invited to attend.

We’re told Heavy’s family has organized a public viewing on Thursday — and anyone who wants to pay tribute to the hip hop legend is encouraged to show up.

But the following day, the burial service is V.I.P. only — and the invite list only includes close members of Heavy’s family and dear friends, such as Diddy, Mary J. Blige, a few of the Wayans brothers … and others.

We’re told Eddie F and G-Whiz — former members of Heavy D and the Boyz — are also on the invite list.
