Craig Mack has passed at the age of 46. According to the New York Daily News, the rapper was pronounced dead on Monday night due to heart failure complications.
"Flava In Ya Ear" was released back in 1994 through Bad Boy Entertainment and ultimately earned Mack a Grammy nomination.

The Long-Island rapper leaves behind an undeniable legacy, so it's no surprise that fellow artists like LL Cool J, Chuck D, Immortal Technique and other prominent voices in the music industry have been mourning his loss.
