R.I.P. Craig Mack
The New York rapper, who collaborated with Sean Combs, the Notorious BIG and LL Cool J, died of heart failure
Mack is best known for the indelible classic "Flava in Ya Ear," – a Top 10 hit in 1994 that sold over a million copies – and its subsequent remix featuring Notorious B.I.G, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes and Rampage. "Craig is hip-hop's George Clinton, because his stuff is really off the wall," Diddy once toldThe New York Times. "He does what's from his heart, which is where it starts for him. But his energy comes from somewhere else."
