Career

His first single "Get Retarded/Just Rhymin'" was released under the name MC EZ ,alongside Troup, in 1988 on Fresh Records. Mack is best known for his 1994 hit single "Flava In Ya Ear", which was released under his real name. The remix of the single was the breakout appearance of The Notorious B.I.G., as well as one of the first solo appearances by Busta Rhymes. The success of The Notorious B.I.G.'s debut album Ready to Die overshadowed Mack's early success on the Bad Boy label. However, B.I.G. himself namedropped Mack in his breakout hit "Big Poppa" with the line "I got more Mack than Craig".

Although Puff Daddy mentioned in a 1994 interview on MTV's Yo! MTV Raps that he was working with Mack on his second album, which was to be released sometime in January the following year, this proved to not be the case. Present at that interview (which also included The Notorious B.I.G.), Mack himself appeared puzzled by the statement.[3] Mack did release a second album in 1997, but none of the singles charted and Mack was unable to repeat his success. In an interview, Biggie Smalls says he appeared on the remix of "Flava In Ya Ear" for political reasons for Puffy.[4] In 2002, Mack would appear in the music video for Puffy's single "I Need a Girl (Part One)".

After a few attempts to return to success in the early-2000s, it was said that Mack was working on his third studio album in 2002, which was set to be released in 2007. The single "Mack Tonight" was released for the album in 2006. Mack then disappeared from the hip-hop industry until in 2012 a video was leaked on YouTube, saying he had joined a Christian ministry, surprising family members and fans. From 2012 until his death, Mack resided in the Overcomer Ministry located in Walterboro, South Carolina.[5] The Overcomer Ministry's YouTube channel released a video titled "Craig Mack Testimony" on May 22, 2016,[6] although recorded the previous day, in which Mack appears in the middle of the church to rap about conspiracy and Christianity through a remix of "When God Comes".[7] The last part of the video entails a full version of the song with better production quality and a beat. The song expresses his personal beliefs. Mack planned to stay in the ministry and said that he had no intentions to come back to mainstream rap. The song also mentions that he "moved family to South Carolina", which did not align with other reports expressing the family's concerns for his choices.[8] According to the video, Mack felt he was doing "wickedness" in New York, and "righteousness" in South Carolina.[9]

On November 26, 2012, Beazylife Distribution released a new Craig Mack mixtape, Operation Why2K? – Hosted by B-Eazy, through DatPiff.com.

In 2017, The Mack World Sessions was released, containing 18 tracks recorded between 2000 and 2006.

Dutch record label, MECSMI, released the 'That's My Word' mixtape, hosted by DJ Tape Deck King, via DatPiff and YouTube on August 20th, 2018.

Death

Mack died on March 12, 2018 from heart failure at a hospital near his home at Walterboro, South Carolina.[10][11][12] According to DJ Scratch he was ill for some time before his passing and was prepared for a grim outcome. Mack was apparently suffering from heart failure, having developed shortness of breath from around six months before his death when, according to rapper Erick Sermon, he called his friends to bid farewell.[13] Following Mack's death, Sermon wrote on Twitter that he was finishing work on Craig Mack's new album.
