Rap legend Heavy D -- one of the most influential rappers of the '90s -- died earlier today ... TMZ has learned.
Heavy D -- real name Dwight Arrington Myers -- was rushed to an L.A. hospital around noon today ... and was pronounced dead at the hospital at 1 PM. He was 44 years old.
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.

He is the voice of people who have an informed perspective. The Grammy Nominated self proclaimed neo soul r&b hippie rockstar, Raheem Devaughn, understands that progress requires the ability to be fearless. On October 15, 2011 alongside colleague/friend/America’s profound thinkers, Dr. Cornell West, and 18 other participants, he was arrested on the steps of the United States Supreme Court for protesting with Occupy DC. As he described his experience as one of the most enlightening moments of his life, it fueled a fire that’s been brewing to be a catalyst for social change. Often compared to Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye, Raheem has always included a socially concious message in all of his music. To bring awareness to be the change one wants to see, Raheem Devaughn and DJ Money presents “The Freedom Fighter” featuring all of his socially concious B-Sides with appearances from : Jill Scott, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Min. Louis Farrakhan, Dr. Cornell West, Anthony Hamilton, Chrisette Michele, and others.
