Veteran rap star Heavy D died as a result of a blocked artery in his lungs, according to the coroner’s report.

Heavy D, whose real name is Dwight Arrington Myers, passed away on November 8, 2011 after collapsing outside his Beverly Hills home. He was 44.

The autopsy performed by the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office has concluded the star died of a pulmonary embolism, caused by a deep leg vein thrombosis (a blood clot condition which can happen on long flights).

Heavy D had returned from Wales, where he had performed at the Michael Jackson tribute concert just days before his death.
