Grammy-Nominated Rapper Craig Mack Dead at 47

In 1995, Sean "Diddy" Combs bragged about the rapper, who he signed to his Bad Boy Entertainment record label. The late 46-year-old had reportedly been sick for quite some time.

A devoutly religious person, Mack apparently doubled-down on his religious activities, moved from NY, and stopped rapping.

Alvin Toney, his former producer, said Mack died of heart failure at his home in Walterboro, South Carolina home.

The UN secretary general, António Guterres, said: "Syria is bleeding inside and out". He ended by quoting Egyptian novelist Naguib Mahfouz: "They are liars.

"Nobody got to understand his story", Toney said. I wanted the world to know the talent he had. "In this game, man, people don't realize the music industry only has a one percent rate ratio, so sometimes it's very stressful and it brings you only to places that you can go to and should go to, which is God".

Craig Mack is survived by a wife and two adult children. The rapper who rose to fame with his hit "Flava in Ya Ear" chose to forego the fame and fortune that rap stars embellish and turned inward to his faith. Easy Mo Bee, the only producer who has worked with both Tupac and Notorious B.I.G., says that he sent Mack "5 or 6 tracks" after some coercing, though he never heard back.

After a few unsuccessful attempts at landing another hit single, Mack disappeared from the hip-hop community in 2012, relocating to the Overcomer Ministry in Walterboro, S.C.
