Craig Mack, the rapper from New York who found fame on Diddy’s Bad Boy label, has died at age 46.
Craig Mack, who launched to hip-hop acclaim for the best-selling summer hit “Flava in Ya Ear” in 1994, died of heart failure at a hospital near his Walterboro, S.C., home Monday.
Producer Alvin Toney visited Mack in South Carolina last week to film a documentary. Tone said Mack “was prepared for whatever comes, to go home to the Lord. He was prepared to do that. He wasn’t scared. He was ready.”
