Craig Mack will stay an enigma to rap followers who bore witness to his singular fashion within the mid-90s. Those who took in “Flava In Ya Ear” and the memorable remixed that ensued, readily perceive the hype surrounding his Bad Boy debut.
Sadly, Craig Mack handed away final yr sort of unexpectedly, each as a result of the guts failure he suffered appeared like an accident, secondly as a result of Craig Mack sort of vanished from public view nicely earlier than information of his passing hit the scene, therefore the enigmatic undertones. Diddy was the person who probably believed in him to the very best diploma. That’s why on the anniversary of Mack’s passing, Sean “Puffy” Combs jumped on Instagram to let off a touching tribute. “We love you and miss you Craig,” wrote Diddy, earlier than reminding us that it is “BAD BOY four LIFE.”
By no coincidence, a brand new documentary directed by photojournalist Andrew Theodorakis will contact on the topic rapper’s dying, in addition to the enigmatic disappearing act he produced someday earlier than. When God Comes will concentrate on the timeline of occasions starting together with his disappearance, which led to him becoming a member of a cult in South Carolina.
There’s little question Mack’s Bad Boy debut helped propel the label into new territory, even with Biggie within the dialog. Diddy is aware of this primary hand. There’s a hope Theodorakis’ documentary might be dealt with delicately as a result of Craig Mack’s legacy may be very a lot deserving of a nudge or two, and maybe the reply to our questions surrounding his drop-off.
