Heavy D’s life story will be chronicled in a documentary airing Sunday on Centric TV.

The Huffington Post reports that Be Inspired: The Life of Heavy D will feature interviews with the Jamaican-born rapper’s family and artists like Will Smith, Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah.

Heavy D (née Dwight Myers) is considered one of the most influential rap artists of the late 1980s and early 1990s. In addition a successful music career, he also did well as an actor. He died last November from a blood clot in his lung, at age 44.

The documentary will include footage from Heavy D’s last televised performance, at the BET Hip-Hop Awards last October.
