We lost a legend earlier this week when Heavy D unexpectedly passed away from what is believed to be complications of pneumonia. Just a few days prior, he’d been in London and stopped by Tim Westwood’s 1xtra show for what has become his last interview. Hev and Tim talked the birth of hip hop, the tragic passing of Troy, performing at the BET awards, working with Jay-Z, producing, touring the UK, Teddy Riley and his cousin, Pete Rock. He’d also been working on new music as recently as a couple months ago, and TMZ has photos of his last moments doing what he loved the most. Check out the pics and interview below.
