As we celebrate the life and music of Heavy D, we take a look at fallen rappers who died a bit too soon. From the early death of Eazy E in 1995 to the loss of Biggie and Tupac to the recent reminder of how close to home gang violence can strike with the death of Cali Swag District’s M-Bone, we remember those whose music we can’t forget.
While the funerals are history and the tributes long gone, we still repeat their lyrics and will replay their music videos. Here’s a brief look at those we will always remember. May they rest in peace.
