The rapper died on Monday, March 12 of heart failure at a hospital near his home in SC, reported the New York Daily News.

Rapper Craig Mack, popular for his single 'Flava In Ya Ear', has died.

The hip-hop community is mourning another loss. They introduced him to Sean "Puffy" Combs - now known as P Diddy - who put him on a remix of Mary J Blige's "You Don't Have To Worry" in 1992.

Alvin Toney, who produced Mack's debut album "Project: Funk Da World" and his "Get Down" remix, told the New York Daily News that he saw Mack for the final time last week. Released nearly 25 years ago in 1994, it became very popular thanks to its all-star remix that featured LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes, The Notorious B.I.G. and Rampage.

His track "Flava In Ya Ear" was released in 1994 and reached number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, ultimately being certified platinum for selling over a million copies.

However, Rashford insists he is learning more on the training ground from his boss than on the pitch on matchday. He came in for a big game and did the business, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's back on the bench.

After departing ways with Diddy, Mack released a second album, Operation: Get Down, but eventually left music and devoted his life to religion. The 46-year-old suffered from heart failure and tragically passed away at a hospital near Walterboro, South Carolina, the town he was living in at the time of his death.

"I'm devastated over the news of Craig Mack", he wrote on Twitter.

According to EPMD's Erick Sermon, Mack was working on a new album. "Rest in Power Craig".

DJ Scratch posted a photo of Mack with the caption, "I just got a disturbing phone call. It was something I wanted people to enjoy, but it was cut short because he was very religious and wanted to go to church".
