The funeral services for rapper Heavy D will be held on this upcoming Friday at the historic Grace Baptist Church in Mount Vernon, NY according to multiple sources.
The ciroc king himself Diddy & Rev. Al Sharton are scheduled to take the podium at the private event, sources confirmed. In addition BET has also just announced plans to honor the late rapper during an all-star tribute at this year’s SouL Train awards.
Diddy said in a statement that he was “heartbroken by the passing of my dear friend.” “He was a wonderful human being, who inspired and paved the way for a Hip Hop generation,” the statement said. “We were like brothers — I will miss him more than words can express.”
A private funeral for the rap legend will be held at the historic Grace Baptist Church in Mount Vernon, just north of New York City.
BET also announced Monday that the Soul Train Music Awards in Atlanta will pay tribute to Heavy D, with Kurtis Blow, Naughty by Nature, Big Daddy Kane, Doug E. Fresh, DJ Eddie F, Whodini and Daddy-O of Stetsasonic participating. [source]
The Soul Train awards should be quite interesting this year….I would have much rather enjoyed seeing LL Cool J, Mary J Blige and someone else take the stage for a tribute but i guess…..
