  • Craig Mack dead at 46 – Flava In Ya Ear hip-hop star who was part of Puff Daddy's Bad Boy Entertainment dies from

Mack, known for his song "Flava in Ya Ear", passed away of natural causes on Monday night in SC, reports USA Today. Friend and longtime producer Alvin Toney was working on a documentary about Mack's influence and rejection of stardom.

Colleton County Coroner Richard Harvey confirmed the news to the Associated Press, revealing that the 90s rapper - who was a part of Sean "Diddy" Combs' Bad Boy label - died from natural causes at his home in SC.

Craig Mack, one of the genre's trailblazers in the '90s, has died on Monday (March 12), NY Daily News reports.

Mack eventually left Bad Boy and in 1997 released an album titled "Operation: Get Down".

Prominent members of the hip-hop community have since taken to Twitter to share a few kind words in memory of their friend and colleague.

Mack's producer confirmed his death to the NYDailyNews on Tuesday. After releasing a single called "Mack Tonight" in 2006, Craig mysteriously disappeared from the spotlight. The song's subsequent remix featured notable rappers such as Notorious B.I.G, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes and Rampage.

Accompanied by a black-and-white music video directed by Hype Williams, "Flava in Ya Ear" was invaluable in establishing Bad Boy's flashy, fly and sleek aesthetic and the raw grit that defined the times, making it more than just a visual, but a mission statement.

I bet you my shit come out fatter, I got the data, to turn your body into anti-matter. "Craig is hip-hop's George Clinton, because his stuff is really off the wall", Diddy had told the Times.

- R.A. the Rugged Man (@RAtheRuggedMan) March 13, 2018This was the first song by CRAIG MACK that I heard on the radio as a kid. Rest in Power Craig.

Mack had moved to SC after leaving his career in music for religion. Mack freestyled and kicked his unique flavor in Diddy's ear, and the rest as they say is history.

Craig Mack is survived by a wife and two adult children.

'I wanted the world to know the talent he had. "May the almighty embrace your soul & lift up your family and friends.it was a pleasure to know you & rock with you".
