Rapper and Diddy protege Craig Mack dies at 46

All of those stories bend toward a particular, mythic arc, but none were quite as odd or opaque as the journey of Bad Boy's forgotten first success story, rapper Craig Mack.

Alvin Toney, Mack's producer on his Project: Funk Da World and Get Down Remix albums, confirmed the news in a statement to The New York Daily News, which reports Mack died on Monday from heart failure while in a SC hospital.

The New Yorker died of heart failure, confirmed his former producer Alvin Toney.

"Nobody got to understand his story", Toney said. "Maybe he knew he was about to die but just didn't want to tell me", Mo Bee says. He tells the outlet that during his visit, Mack informed him he had been sick for some time and "knew he wouldn't live long". The song's subsequent remix featured notable rappers such as Notorious B.I.G, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes and Rampage.

But she remains a heroine for most of her compatriots, who largely consider the Rohingya as unwanted illegal immigrants from Bangladesh.

"I can not believe this dude is gone", said DJ Scratch, the stage name for George Spivey.

Take a look at Craig Mack below. Brooklyn's DJ Scratch remembered Mack as the hardworking roadie who helped set up and break down his turntables on tours. "Just like Uniblab, robotic kicking flab/ My flavor bidder badder chitter-chatter/ Madder than the Mad Hatter/ I bet you my shit come out phatter", Mack raps on the slow-rolling anthem. Although his subsequent releases weren't on that label, he did make a guest appearance in Diddy's 2002 "I Need a Girl (Part One)" video.

Mack eventually left Bad Boy and in 1997 released an album titled "Operation: Get Down". Like Sermon, Mack hailed from Long Island, New York, and another native of the borough also added his thoughts.

The news of Craig Mack's passing caught many people by surprise earlier today. It was a throwback to the intro where Mo Bee tells Mack to "kick that old robotic, futuristic, George Jetson insane joint!"
