Rapper and Diddy protege Craig Mack dies at 46

Rapper Craig Mack, best known for the song "Flava in Ya Ear", has died aged 46.

Even a close friend DJ Scrach shared a pic of Mack on Instagram, revealing that he'd recently been in touch with the legendary rapper to discuss a documentary about his life.

"Nobody got to understand his story", Toney said.

'I wanted the world to know the talent he had.

Mack was from Long Island in NY and signed with P. Diddy's Bad Boy record label. He was prepared for whatever comes, to go home to the Lord.

Tillerson says plans for North Korea meeting 'in the very early stages'
Even as the world reacts, North Korea has maintained silence, not responding to Trump's announcement last week. When pressed on the location of the meeting, Tillerson said no agreements have been reached.

Released nearly 25 years ago in 1994, "Flava In Ya Ear" tore the roof off of Hip Hop thanks to its all-star remix that featured LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes, The Notorious B.I.G. and Rampage.

It's a sad day in the world of Hip Hop this morning as it has been announced that the rapper Craig Mack has passed away at the age of 46. I can not believe this dude is gone. "He wasn't scared. He was ready", said the music producer. He just reached out a couple of weeks ago for me to speak on his documentary about his life.

Brooklyn's DJ Scratch remembered Mack as the hardworking roadie who helped set up and break down his turntables on tours. Funkmaster Flex posted a photo of Craig Mack with Biggie Smalls that included the caption, "Rest in Peace!"

Mack is survived by a wife and two children.

Its standout hit was "Flava In Ya Ear", which made it into the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was something I wanted people to enjoy, but it was cut short because he was very religious and wanted to go to church'. Mack would not make another album until 1997's "Operation: Get Down", but it was a flop that failed to repeat the same success that his first album produced.
