When I heard the news I was shocked because I knew Craig Mack was young. 46 years old is very young. His first song "Flava In Ya Ear" was a huge record. It hit like a tidal wave. You couldn't go anywhere without hearing it. Clubs, radio, TV...."Flava In Ya Er" was everywhere. Bad Boy records first artist even before Biggie. Craig was in a class all by himself. His artistic way of rapping set him apart and some say you can hear his influence on Biggie and Lil Kim. He will be missed but his music lives on. To read more on hit this link Craig Mack dead at 46.
