We’ve learned a 911 call was placed from Heavy’s Beverly Hills home around 11:25 AM to report an unconscious male on the walkway .

When help arrived, we’re told Heavy D was conscious and speaking — and was transported to a nearby hospital. He died a short time later.

Cops are investigating the death — and so far, there are no obvious signs of foul play. Police are currently at the home.

Terrible news.  Rest in Peace, D.
