Rapper And Former Bad Boy Artist Craig Mack Dead At 46

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

Furthermore, Harvey said it appeared Mack died of natural heart failure. He was 46 years old.

The hip-hop star initially rose to fame in 1994 with the hit single "Flava In Ya Ear", and was the first artist to release an album on P Diddy's Bad Boy Records.

"Here comes the brand new flava in ya ear". It contained the single Flava in Ya Ear, the remix of which reached the US Top 10 thanks in part to an all-star cast of guest rappers: the Notorious BIG, Busta Rhymes, LL Cool J and Rampage.

Allen Robinson Intends to Sign With Bears in Free Agency
He pointed out that Robinson is still one of the top wide receivers in the league because he can keep the defense guessing. This likely wasn't a "bid against themselves" situation like the Bears found themselves in with Mike Glennon last season.

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. He released a second album, "Operation: Get Down", on the Scotti Brothers label in 1997 but left the industry soon after to focus on religion. 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.

While Mack was done with mainstream hip-hop, he never fully gave up rapping. Three years later, footage of Mack freestyling with pastor Ralph Gordon Stair made its way throughout the internet.

Mack's "Flava In Ya Ear" received a Grammy Award nomination for best rap song but lost to Queen Latifah.

Released nearly 25 years ago in 1994, it tore the roof off of Hip Hop thanks to its all-star remix that featured LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes, The Notorious B.I.G. and Rampage. "He felt like after giving his life to God that maybe he shouldn't rap again".

The late rapper is survived by his wife and two children.
