Alvin Toney, who produced Mack's debut album "Project: Funk Da World", told the publication that he had recently visited the former rapper at the church he attended and the two had made plans to film a documentary about Mack's decision to retire from the spotlight to focus on his faith.

In a tweet today, rapper/producer Erick Sermon stated: "We just finishing up his new album".

"I'm devastated over the news of Craig Mack", he wrote on Twitter. Rest in Power Craig.
