Now, Erick Sermon, a close friend of Mack, says the rapper died from congestive heart failure and said Mack actually told friends six months ago that he was dying.

Craig Mack, who found fame as a rapper with Diddy's Bad Boy Records in the 1990s, has passed away at the age of 46.

Unfortunately, Mack wasn't able to keep his industry flame alive after the success of "Flava In Ya Ear" and its gold-certified album, Project: Funk da World. Mack would go on to release one more album, Operation: Get Down in 1997, before leaving the music industry entirely, to devote his life to religion.

"It was something I wanted people to enjoy, but it was cut short because he was very religious and wanted to go to church", Toney said of Mack, who was ill for a while and was aware that his days were numbered.

Alvin Toney, Mack's longtime friend and producer, was in the middle of making a documentary that highlighted his mission to serve God.

Mack's "Flava In Ya Ear" received a Grammy Award nomination for best rap song but lost to Queen Latifah. But the first single release went to Mack. He packaged and promoted the artists using the catchy "B.I.G./Mack" theme inspired by McDonalds.

"Here comes the brand new flava in ya ear".

- R.A. the Rugged Man (@RAtheRuggedMan) March 13, 2018This was the first song by CRAIG MACK that I heard on the radio as a kid.

So strong was his love for the genre that he told the New York Times he chose to forgo furthering his education.

"Craig Mack, you were the first artist to release music on Bad Boy and gave us our first hit", he wrote alongside a video of the artist.

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

"Flava in Your Ear" started with the memorable line, "Just like Uniblab/ My flavor bidder badder chitter-chatter/ Madder than the Mad Hatter/ I bet you my sh*t come out phatter".

"Rest in Peace CRAIG MACK".

"[Alvin] did two hours' worth of interviewing with Craig Mack".
