Craig Mack

Craig Mack, a hip-hop pioneer from Sean P. Diddy Combs' Bad Boy Entertainment label, died at the age of 46.

He was in SC, and reportedly passed away due to natural causes, TMZ reports.

Mack's huge 1994 hit, 'Flava, ' earned him a Best Rap Solo Grammy nomination, although he lost to Queen Latifah. Toney produced Mack's albums "Project: Funk Da World" and "Get Down Remix".

According to the New York Daily News, Alvin Toney, Mack's friend and longtime producer, was in the process of making an authorized documentary of the enigmatic MC before he passed away. "Craig is hip-hop's George Clinton, because his stuff is really off the wall", Diddy had told the Times.

The New York Daily News reports that Mack did not expect to live long after battling an undisclosed illness. I can not believe this dude is gone.

Mack had retired from rapping to devote himself to religion, Toney said. The film, which did not feature the Long Island, New Yorker, also explored his religious conviction, which was on full display in a clip of Mack that was released in 2016.

"Rest in power Craig", LL Cool J responded to the news of Mack's death over Twiter.
