"He was a good friend of mine". "A piece of Sizzlean with eggs and grits in between", Arum said before handing the show back to Blankenship, stealing from Mack's "Flava in Ya Ear". "Nobody got to understand his story". "But I wanted to rap more than anything, and there were no courses in rap at college". In this game, man, people don't realize the music industry only has a 1 percent rate ratio, so sometimes it's very stressful and it brings you only to places that you can go to and should go to, which is God.

"I knew I wanted to be like LL Cool J and Run DMC", Mack told the New York Times in 1995.

Diddy, going by Puff Daddy at the time, took Mack under his wing after the aspiring rapper proved his prowess by freestyling outside club Mecca in Manhattan. So, he did and blew him away in the process. He released "Flava in Ya Ear" on July 26, 1994, while Biggie's "Juicy" hit airwaves on August 8, 1994. "Big March 9th. Craig March 12th - Prayers love and light to your family and loved ones".

Rap icons and music lovers celebrated Mack for his contribution to the art form.

The death itself was unexpected, though Mack was apparently nursing a fatal heart condition.
