Heavy D died from a pulmonary embolism caused by deep leg vein thrombosis, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office.
TMZ is reporting that a pulmonary embolism — which is a blockage of one or more arteries in the lungs, most often caused by blood clots which travel from other parts of the body — was formed in Heavy’s legs.
Heavy D also suffered from heart disease, which could have been a contributing factor in his death.
The Coroner’s Office has classified the death as “natural.”
