Craig Mack didn't have a lot of hits.

But the OG Bad Boy, who died today of a heart attack at age 46, gave Puff Daddy his first hit.

Diddy paid tribute to Mack on Twitter.

 

The hit Diddy is talking about is 1994's "Flava In Your Ear", which blew up when it was remixed with Biggie Smalls, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes, and Rampage.

At the time, Diddy declared that both Biggie Smalls and Mack would be the foundation of Bad Boy Entertainment and promised Mack a second album

However, Puff ended up favoring Big over Mack and Mack split with Bad Boy before he released that sophomore album, 1997's Operation: Get Down.

Not long after that he embraced Christianity and left the industry.
