Grammy Award victor Craig Mack dies at age 46

Craig Mack

The rapper died on Monday, March 12 of heart failure at a hospital near his home in SC, reported the New York Daily News.

Mack, who hailed from Long Island, New York, grew to fame under Diddy's Bad Boy Entertainment label. Clearly, it worked. Craig's biggest hit was "Flava In Ya Ear", released in 1994 - the song reached No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and No. 1 on the US rap charts.

Mack succumbed Monday to heart failure at a hospital near his home in Walterboro, South Carolina, the producer said.

In 2006, after releasing the single "Mack Tonight", the rapper stepped away from the music industry and became a passionate member of the Pentecostal Overcome Ministry commune in Walterboro, South Carolina. "Mack's the brand new flava in ya ear". "He wasn't scared. He was ready".

Mack's death rocked the biggest names of NY hip-hop.

"I can not believe this dude is gone", said DJ Scratch, the stage name for George Spivey. "Rest In Peace! Good brother", tweeted Funkmaster Flex, the Hot 97 DJ who shared Mack's hits on the NYC station. Growing up in Suffolk County, New York, Mack wanted to emulate New York rappers of the time such as LL Cool J and Run DMC. He was like, 'You know what I'm gonna trade you a record deal if you get down on Mary J.'s ["You Don't Have To Worry (Remix)"].

Popular American music artiste, Craig Mack, is dead. "Craig is hip-hop's George Clinton, because his stuff is really off the wall", Diddy had told the Times.

"I just got a disturbing phone call".

"Craig was my roadie on tour. Craig Mack wanted to tell his story before he left", Sermon said. He will be most likely remembered for his platinum hit "Flava in Ya Ear", which was, arguably, the biggest and most infectious song in the summer of 1994.

This is probably Craig Mack's most well-known song, despite getting lyrically outshined by both Biggie and Busta Rhymes on the posse track.

Mack, who leaves behind a wife and two children, made it big on Diddy's label before other acts like The Notorious B.I.G. took precedence.
