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.
