Bad Boy rapper Craig Mack died yesterday at his home in Walterboro, South Carolina of heart failure.

He was 46.

Mack's big hit was 1994's, "Flava In Your Ear" off of his debut album Project: Funk da World. The remix featured Biggie Smalls, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes, and Rampage and is one of the iconic tracks of the 90s.

Mack's follow up album, 1997's Project: Funk da World, wasn't successful. After that, the Queens-born, Long Island-raised Mack moved to South Carolina and became an evangelical Christian. He declined to be a part of the recent Bad Boy reunion tour because of his religious beliefs.

Tributes to Mack are pouring in:


I just got a disturbing phone call. 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.
