R.I.P. Bad Boy Records Rapper Craig Mack

"Flava In Ya Ear" rapper Craig Mack died from congestive heart failure, according to Erick Sermon.

Grammy Award-nominated rapper Craig Mack, who helped put P. Diddy's Bad Boy Records on the map, died Monday at age 46. He had been ill for some time.

After news of his passing was announced, many hip-hop and rap stars took to social media to share their sympathy.

See some reactions below.

He's survived by a wife and two adult children, said Toney. DJ Scratch said on Instagram that Mack formerly handled his turntable setups and breakdowns. The song became a hit but it was the remix which featured The Notorious B.I.G. that became even more popular. I went outside the club. Mack spent the next several years focusing on religion and joined Overcomer Ministry, which was once led by outed sexual assaulter Ralph Gordon "Brother" Stair. The news was confirmed on March 13 by a producer who worked with the rapper named Alvin Toney. "He just reached out a couple of weeks ago for me to speak on his documentary about his life", he shared. He was like, 'You know what I'm gonna trade you a record deal if you get down on Mary J.'s ["You Don't Have To Worry (Remix)"]. Funkmaster Flex posted a photo of Craig Mack with Biggie Smalls that included the caption, "Rest in Peace!"

The subsequent remix included a breakout guest verse from Notorious B.I.G., whose "Ready to Die" album dropped a week before Mack's full-length debut, "Project: Funk da World". I can not believe this dude is gone.

2018 has not been an easy year to be a hip-hop head. "Flava In Ya Ear" was Mack's crown jewel earning him a Grammy nomination before he made a decision to leave Bad Boy Records in 1995. May the almighty embrace your soul and life up your family and friends. You $tepped away from the game & did it your way. "I always respected that", tweeted LL Cool J.
