heavy-d-and-the-boyz-3Wow, after all these years most of us here at WRWR thought that Heavy-D’s dancer fell of a stage while performing, but that’s not what happened. It has been over 25 years since that happened, and the folks over at XXL, and writer Anslem Samuel did a great interview with the other members of the group about what actually happened to hip-hop dance pioneer Troy “Trouble T-Roy” Dixon. It was a freak accident while on tour in Indianapolis. He was only 22 years old when he died.
