Craig Mack, one of the early rappers on Bad Boy Records, passed away from heart failure yesterday at age 46. In 1994, Mack released the first-ever Bad Boy single, "Flava in Ya Ear," but the song is better known for its epic remix (featured here) that many consider one of the best rap songs of all time. In 2012, Mack joined the Overcomer Ministry—which is widely considered a cult—in South Carolina. Shortly after Mack's death, rapper Erick Sermon tweeted, "I'm devastated over the news of Craig Mack.. We just finishing up his new album." If true, Mack will have one last swan song with which to remember him.
