I’ve never been to a service for someone famous & I was the only famous person to show up. Very weird day today, but what puts a smile on my face is that Lil Bro was at peace way before he passed away. That’s what matters most to me. ?? Craig Mack.
Mack is best known for his 1994 hit single “Flava In Ya Ear”, which was released under his real name. The remix of the single was the breakout appearance of The Notorious B.I.G., as well as one of the first solo appearances by Busta Rhymes. The success of The Notorious B.I.G.’s debut album Ready to Die overshadowed Mack’s early success on the Bad Boy label.

According to Scratch, he was ill for some time before his passing and was prepared for a grim outcome. Mack was apparently suffering from heart failure, having developed shortness of breath, from as early as about six months before his death when according to rapper Erick Sermon he called his friends to bid farewell.
