90s hip hop star Craig Mack dead at 46
Craig Mack, who rose to prominence with his 1994 hit single "Flava In Ya Ear", died Monday night.
The 46-year-old Mack was part of Puff Daddy's Bad Boy Entertainment in the 1990s.
Mack's biggest hit is still well-known almost 25 years later, mainly because of the remix which featured an early-in-his-career Notorious B.I.G. and features one of Biggie's best verses that included the famous line: "You're mad because my style you're admiring/Don't be mad, UPS is hiring."
Mack's debut album "Project: Funk da World" peaked at No. 21 on the U.S. charts. His second album "Operation: Get Down" was released three years later and wasn't nearly as successful.
Legendary hip hop DJs Funkmaster Flex and DJ Scratch and rapper Biz Markie all took to social media and confirmed Mack's passing early Tuesday morning.
