The rap community has lost another trailblazer as Craig Mack, best known for his ’94 hit Flava in Ya Ear, passed away on Monday. It’s said the former rapper died from natural causes around 9 p.m. in his South Carolina home. He was only 46 years old.
During his time in the limelight, Mack was a member of Diddy‘s Bad Boy Entertainment, which released his first album Project: Funk da World. Not only did Craig receive a Grammy nomination, but his second single, Get Down, went gold.
However, after leaving Diddy’s company, Mack kept a relatively low profile in the music industry before turning his focus on religion. Our thoughts are with Craig’s loved ones during this sad time.
