Former Bad Boy Records rapper Craig Mack has died

It's a sad day in the world of Hip Hop this morning as it has been announced that the rapper Craig Mack has passed away at the age of 46. Rapper Biz Markie, Funkmaster Flex, and DJ Scratch - who were all close friends of Mack - took to social media to confirm Mack's passing. According to NYDN, Mack-famous for his 1994 hit single "Flava in Year"-died of heart failure at a hospital near his home in Walterboro, South Carolina Monday".

Mack was spotted by Sean Combs, better known as Puff Daddy and records label in the 1990s, and released his first single under the name MC EZ in 1998. Released nearly 25 years ago in 1994, it became very popular thanks to its all-star remix that featured LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes, The Notorious B.I.G. and Rampage. He was a good friend of mine, ' said Toney, who produced Mack's albums Project: Funk Da World and Get Down Remix.

After splitting with Diddy, he released a second album, Operation: Get Down, but eventually left music and devoted his life to religion.


Mack's 1994 hit single "Flava In Ya Ear" has come to be considered a hip-hop classic, and it also appeared in a recent vehicle commercial as motivational music.

Born in Queens, New York, Craig Mack would later leave NY and rap music in exchange for the South. "I can not believe this dude is gone", said Scratch on Instagram. Because Craig was my rodie on tour. "Rest In Peace Lil Bro". In a statement, Toney said, "God bless my friend". He also added, "He was prepared for whatever comes, to go home to the Lord". While the album was a critical and financial success, it remained overshadowed by the debut album of Mack's "Bad Boy" cohort; Notorious B.I.G.

Rapper Biz Markie also paid tribute, saying: "He had two ideal singles and the platonic rap remix".
