Hip hop legend Craig Mack, known for his hit single "Flava In Your Ear" has passed away at the age of 46-years-old.

According to the New York Daily News, he died of heart failure in South Carolina.

Craig Mack was one of the original members of Bad Boy, and quickly gave the Diddy a strong 1, 2 punch along with the Notorious B.I.G. in the early parts of the label.

Later in his life, he turned to a more Christian lifestyle. He was last seen turning down an opportunity for one last run with Diddy on the Bad Boy reunion tour.

Our prayers go out to his family.
