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. Mixing interviews from the likes of Mary J. 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.
