'Flava In Ya Ear' MC And Early '90s Rap Pioneer Craig Mack Has Died At Age 46

BREAKING: Former Bad Boy rapper Craig Mack dead at 46

According to the New York Daily News, Mack died of heart failure in hospital near his home in SC on Monday, 12 March.

The Long Island rapper, who is best known for the 1994 hit and its remix, "Flava in Ya Ear", died of heart failure at a hospital near his home in Walterboro, S.C. on Monday (March 12).

Flava in Ya Ear was the first release on Combs' label Bad Boy Records, which became one of the most significant in hip-hop history, launching the careers of the Notorious BIG, Mase, Faith Evans, Janelle Monáe and French Montana. Toney says Mack revealed he was ill when they saw each other last week, and that Mack was at peace with his condition. He was a good friend of mine", said Alvin Toney, who produced Mack's debut album "Project: "Funk Da World" and his "Get Down Remix". "Most of the call was me trying to persuade him to start making music again".

Mack's follow-up album, Operation: Get Down was released by on Street Life after he separated from Bad Boy Records in 1995; however, the album failed to spawn a single anywhere near as successful at "Flava In Ya Ear", and ultimately peaked at No. 46 on the Billboard 200 while failing to reach the same commercial success as his first album. "He wasn't scared. He was ready". "Craig is hip-hop's George Clinton, because his stuff is really off the wall", Diddy had told the Times.

At least I could decide and not be forced because of that, so I was determined to get back fit. "But, yeah, it's looking likely". We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing totally confirmed as yet.

In January, Craig Mack appeared as a guest on Erick Sermon's single "Come Thru" alongside Mr. Cheeks of The Lost Boyz. "I can not believe this dude is gone", said Scratch on Instagram.

"He was prepared for whatever comes, to go home to the Lord". "I wanted the world to know the talent he had".

Speaking of the two on MTV Raps (via the Daily News), he said, "This is my life here".
