Premiering this past Sunday on Centric TV, Be Inspired: The Life of Heavy D finds a bevy of influential people from the hip-hop community remembering the truly legendary emcee.

Blige, Queen Latifah, Will Smith and MC Lyte with performance footage, including his last live show at the BET Hip-Hop Awards, the viewer gets a reminder of just how big a part of the culture Heavy D was. The documentary also features stories from his family and other golden-era artists such as Doug E. Fresh, Big Daddy Kane and Kurtis Blow. Heavy D tragically passed away from a pulmonary embolism caused by deep leg vein thrombosis on November 8, 2011. Watch the entire moving documentary above.
