Craig Mack, one of the flagship artists on Diddy's Bad Boy Records label, passed away from heart failure at a hospital near his home in Walterboro, S.C., on Monday (March 12).

Despite his success with his record, Mack left bad Boy Records reportedly due to a tense relationship with late rapper Notorious B.I.G., and he did not have the same success following "Flava In Ya Ear".

Former rapper Craig Mack, 46, known for "Flava in Ya Ear", died in SC on Monday.

Mack would often "daze off" for 10 minutes at a time "to catch his breath" while conversing with his friends.

While the news of his demise remains unconfirmed, tributes have already started pouring in on social media from members of the hip-hop community.

Mack first met Combs at a New York City club and told him he'd sign him if he could freestyle to a Mary J. Blige song, which he did.

Alvin confirmed that Craig was survived by a wife and two adult children. Rest In Peace Craig Mack. The remixed version of the song marked the breakout performance of The Notorious B.I.G.as well as one of Busta Rhymes ' first solo appearances. "I can not believe this dude is gone", Scratch wrote early Tuesday morning. He would set up & break down my turntables every night... "He wasn't scared. He was ready". "I'm devastated over the news of Craig Mack", Sermon wrote.

Mack provided Diddy with his first platinum plaque and Grammy nomination with 1994's "Flava In Ya Ear".

In the poignant words of Questlove, "to be in hip-hop culture and live past the age of 50 is a fight to the finish". "Maybe he knew he was about to die but just didn't want to tell me", Mo Bee says. You $tepped away from the game & did it your way. I can not believe this dude is gone. "I was able to use my DJ Diamond J, who became my DJ for EPMD".
