New York-bred Rapper Craig Mack, who broke out in 1994 with Flava In Ya Ear, has died in his adopted home state of SC.

The New York Daily News reports that he died of heart failure at a SC hospital near his home in Walterboro.

Craig rose to prominence as one of the first artists signed to Diddy's Bad Boy Entertainment record label in the 90s.

Toney, who last saw his friend last week, said the rapper died of heart failure at a hospital near his home in Walterboro, S.C.

However, Toney says Mack had been very ill for some time and knew he didn't have much longer to live. Via an introduction from rap group EPMD, he became one of the many proteges of Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs, who released Mack's album Project: Funk da World in 1994.

A devoutly religious person, Mack apparently doubled-down on his religious activities, moved from NY, and stopped rapping.

In Diddy's documentary Can't Stop, Won't Stop, there is a scene where Diddy and his team are trying to convince Mack to perform on the Bad Boy Reunion tour that took place in 2016. "We have somebody who usedto be Craig Mack - and he didn't join [our church], God joined him".

One shouted at him: 'It's a British issue'. "As you say it is a European issue", Juncker fired back. Even though President Trump said that trade wars were good and easy to win, this is not the case.

Craig's song "Flava In Ya Ear" was a major hit years ago and earned him a Grammy nomination.

"I just got a disturbing phone call".

"Rest In Peace Lil Bro", he wrote in an Instagram post. Mack was Scratch's tour roadie, helping set up and break down his turntables each night.

Bad Boy was a close family, "brothers and sisters by love and not blood", Joyce said, and Mack was an integral part of that. The song featured a video by Hype Williams - whose clips for Missy Elliott, Diddy and others would define the look of mid-1990s hip-hop - and a remix with Notorious B.I.G.

Mack leaves behind a wife and two children.
