Flava In Ya Ear rapper Craig Mack dies, aged 46


Craig Mack, who shot to fame as part of Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy camp with his hit 1994 single Flava In Ya Ear, has died at the age of 46. 

New York Daily News confirmed the rapper’s death in an interview with Mack affiliate/producer Alvin Toney, reporting that the rapper died of heart failure on Monday at a hospital in Walterboro, S.C..

The news was also announced via veteran hip-hop DJs Funkmaster Flex and DJ Scratch on social media.

“I just got a disturbing phone call,” read Scratch’s Instagram post. “I cannot believe this dude is gone. He just reached out a couple of weeks ago for me to speak on his documentary about his life. Because Craig was my rodie on tour. He would set up & break down my turntables every night on tour. Rest In Peace Lil Bro.”

Mack’s 1994 debut album Project: Funk Da World went gold in America. The remix of Mack’s single Flava In Ya Ear also provided one of the breakout moments for Bad Boy’s revered star Notorious B.I.G.. The rapper largely stepped away from music following his 1997 second album Operation: Get Down, though in 2017 he released The Mack World Sessions. In a tweet today, rapper/producer Erick Sermon stated: "We just finishing up his new album."

Tributes from across the music industry have started to pour in.
