BIO

Heavy D & the Boyz were the first group signed to Uptown Records, with Heavy D (Dwight Arrington Myers May 24, 1967 – November 8, 2011) as the frontman and only rapper, and Eddie F (born Edward Ferrell) was his business partner in the group, DJ, and one of the producers. The other two members, T-Roy (Troy Dixon October 19, 1967 — July 15, 1990 ) and G-Wiz (Glen Parrish) were the dancers.

The group maintained a sizable audience in the United States through most of the 1990s. The five albums the group released were produced by Teddy Riley, Marley Marl, DJ Premier, his cousin Pete Rock and Eddie F.

On July 15, 1990, Troy Dixon, better known as Trouble T-Roy, was killed by an accidental fall. While on tour in Indianapolis, he and others were having fun after a performance and walking on a raised exit ramp outside the arena. Dixon lost his balance, fell from a height of approximately two stories, and hit his head. He was rushed to the hospital and later died there.

Dixon's death led to a tribute on the follow-up platinum album, Peaceful Journey. Pete Rock & CL Smooth created a tribute to Trouble T. Roy called "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)" which is regarded as a hip hop classic.

Heavy D (Dwight Arrington Myers) performed at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards on October 29, 2011. It was his first televised live performance in 15 years and would be his final live performance. Myers died just ten days later, on November 8, 2011, in Los Angeles, California, at the age of 44. He collapsed outside his Beverly Hills home and was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. An autopsy report, released on December 27, 2011, found that the cause of death was a pulmonary embolism (PE). The coroner's office found that Myers died of a PE that had broken off from a deep vein thrombosis in the leg. He also suffered from heart disease. The blood clot was "most likely formed during an extended airplane ride," said Craig Harvey, chief of the Los Angeles County department of coroner.

Shortly after his death, MC Hammer and others led tributes for Heavy D on Twitter. Hammer Tweeted: "We had a lot of great times touring together. He had a heart of gold. He was a part of what's good about the world."
