Rapper Craig Mack, who rose to prominence in the early 1990s and helped jumpstart Diddy's Bad Boy Records label with his 1994 hit, "Flava in Ya Ear", died of heart failure at a hospital near his home in SC on Monday, according to the New York Daily News.
The artist upon which Diddy (then Puff Daddy) launched his Bad Boy Records imprint in 1993, the same label that gave us The Notorious B.I.G., Ma$e, Total, Carl Thomas, Faith Evans, 112, Black Rob, G Dep, French Montana, Machine Gun Kelly, and of course Diddy himself, Craig Mack will forever be remembered for his "Flava In Ya Ear" remix.
