Craig Mack Died of Congestive Heart Failure ... Says Erick Sermon

News broke early Tuesday morning that 46-year-old rapper Craig Mack passed away from heart failure at a hospital near his home in SC.

The album's most successful song, "Flava In Ya Ear", led to a successful remix that featured Notorious B.I.G., LL Cool J and Busta Rhymes.

Toney told The Daily News that he last saw Mack in SC last week.

In recent years, he had released music, with his final album, The Mack World Sessions, coming out in 2017.

A report mentioned that Mack was inspired by hip-hop pioneers such as LL Cool J and Run-D.M.C.to pursue a career in the music industry. "Good brother... #CraigMack... Alvin Toney love my brother..."

Produced by Easy Mo Bee and originally intended for Flava Unit rapper Apache, "Flava in Ya Ear" would become one of the biggest rap hits of 1994, peaking at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, earning platinum certification. His second studio album did not enjoy the same success as his first album, and the rapper subsequently stepped out of the spotlight and spent the rest of his years following Christ.

One fan asked what Kylie's favourite part of Stormi is, and she revealed that it is her little toes. "We were made for this". An insider claimed the 28-year-old rapper thinks there is a chance Kylie's daughter might be his and not Scott's.

Grammy-nominated star DJ Scratch took to Instagram to lament the news, as he penned: I just got a disturbing phone call.

Despite appearing on Bad Boy songs in 2002, Mack largely disappeared from the limelight to pursue a quiet life of faith in SC, where he was active in the Overcomer Ministry church. "So I wouldn't go".

On social media, fans and colleagues of Mack are paying their respects to the late artist. Rest in Power Craig.

According to Daily News, the rapper is survived by his wife and two adult children. May the almighty embrace your soul and life up your family and friends.

"If Berry Gordy had Smokey Robinson and "Shop Around" to launch Motown we had Craig Mack with that single 'Flava in Ya Ear, '" former Bad Boy president Kirk Burrowes told CNN.
