It’s sad news in the world of Hip Hop today with the announcement of the passing of Bad Boy recording artist Craig Mack at the age of 46. It’s being reported that he died of heart failure.
Mack’s hit “Flava In Ya Ear”, released July 26 1994, was the first of a barrage of Bad Boy hits over the next few years, as Puffy and his roster owned the radio airwaves. Mack’s follow ups singles didn’t reach the heights Flava In Your Ear did, and his follow up album peaked at 46 on the Billboard charts. Regardless, Craig Mack will always be known as the first artist that helped launched a brief Bad Boy dynasty, with Sean Combs at the helm and The Notorious B.I.G. as the engine.
Flava In Ya Ear
Rest in peace Craig Mack.
(BTW, Flava In Ya Ear Remix is one of the greatest remixes of all time, but you knew that already.)
