Not Released

"Flava in Ya Ear" rapper Craig Mack has passed away at the age of 46. Mack's cause of death has been confirmed as heart failure and reportedly he passed away in a hospital near his SC home on Monday.

Mack was made famous by his 1994 hit "Flava In Ya Ear", which was the first single off Sean Combs AKA Diddy's Bad Boy label.

The "New York Daily News" is reporting that Mack's producer Alvin Toney said Mack succumbed to heart failure on Monday in Walterboro, South Carolina. "Nobody got to understand his story". Showcasing Craig Mack's abstract flow and off-kilter wordplay, "Flava in Ya Ear" set the stage for Project: Funk da World, which arrived on September 20, 1993, one week after the release of The Notorious B.I.G.'s debut, Ready to Die.

However, Toney says Mack had been very ill for some time and knew he didn't have much longer to live.

However, it was Funkmaster Flex's Instagram post that broke the collective heart of fans on social media.
