Bad Boy Legend Craig Mack Dead at 46 NDSmith March 13, 2018 Hip Hop News | Trending Hip Hop Stories It started with him…. His classic “Flava In Ya Ear” cracked open the dynasty for Sean Combs’ Bad Boy Records. You don’t remember? Puffy in the background whispering a re-interpolated swipe from the classic New York gang film The Warriors, “Bad Boy… come out and playyyyyy.” Today is a very sad day in Hip-Hop as we say good-bye to one of the most underrated and influential emcees in the game, Craig Mack. While his rise in Hip-Hop seemed meteoric… his disappearance was just as fast. After leaving the industry to commit himself to serving God, Craig was last heard on the telephone during Puffy’s Can’t Stop Won’t Stop documentary. During that time, he was refusing to take the stage during the reunion tour that most certainly would have a treat for those who loved that era in Bad Boy’s history. Check out the salute by those who loved him: Rest In Peace! Good brother… #CraigMack …. Alvin Toney love my brother… A post shared by FunkFlex (@funkflex) on Mar 12, 2018 at 11:15pm PDT I just got a disturbing phone call. I cannot believe this dude is gone. He just reached out a couple of weeks ago for me to speak on his documentary about his life. Because Craig was my rodie on tour. He would set up & break down my turntables every night on tour. Rest In Peace Lil Bro. A post shared by Turntable Whisperer (@djscratch) on Mar 12, 2018 at 11:25pm PDT Their both gone 💔💔 throw the whole 2018 away.
