Mary J. Blige and Sean 'Diddy' Combs are expected to be among the mourners when rapper Heavy D is laid to rest in New York next week.

A private funeral has been planned for the 44 year old who died on Tuesday. There will be a public viewing of the rap star's body for fans on November 17, according to reports.
The hip-hop star, real name Dwight Arrington Myers, was found unconscious outside his home in Beverly Hills, California on Tuesday. He was pronounced dead at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles an hour later.
There were no obvious signs of foul play.
