    Craig Mack, who rose to notoriety with 1994’s “Flava In Ya Ear,” was signed to Diddy’s Bad Boy Entertainment throughout the ’90s. The track’s remix is considered one of the greatest rap posse cuts of all time.

    “Flava In Ya Year” is also certified platinum by the RIAA and peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 the year it was released.

    Despite Diddy asking him to join the Bad Boy Reunion Tour in 2016, Mack opted not to do the shows. However, he did return in May 2016 with a religious rap song he performed at The Overcomer Ministry in South Carolina.

    He reportedly died of heart failure

    I listen to Flava in Your Ear often. Also the remix. Sometimes Get Down, it's all the same song.
