90s Hip Hop Icon Craig Mack Dead at 46
I have some sad news to share with all of you Hip Hop lovers, specifically those of you from the 90s. It is being reported that rapper and legend Craig Mack has passed away at the age of 46 of natural causes.
Best known for his platinum selling single Flava in Ya Ear, Craig Mack was living in Walterboro, SC, where he’d joined a church and committed himself to his religion. His former producer, Alvin Toney, told the Daily News he’d seen him for the last time last week while filming a documentary on Craig’s new life.
Released on July 31, 1994, Flava in Ya Ear served as the lead single from his debut studio album Project: Funk da World, which was certified Gold. Flava in Ya Ear also featured a successful remix (not included on the album), featuring guest verses from The Notorious B.I.G., Busta Rhymes, Rampage and LL Cool J.
It also contains Puff Daddy as a promoter and brief appearances by Keisha Spivey. The video features guest appearances by Das EFX, Mic Geronimo, and Irv Gotti, although none perform on the song.
