Hip-hop pioneer and Long Island native Craig Mack, best known for the platinum 1994 hit "Flava in Ya Ear", has died in SC.

Mack was in "no shape to perform", but that didn't stop the rapper from recording new music while working on a documentary about his life with Alvin Tony, the music producer who signed Mack to Sean "P. Diddy" Comb's Bad Boy Entertainment label in the early '90s.

Unfortunately, Mack wasn't able to keep his industry flame alive after the success of "Flava In Ya Ear" and its gold-certified album, Project: Funk da World.

"It was something I wanted people to enjoy, but it was cut short because he was very religious and wanted to go to church", Toney said of Mack, who was ill for a while and was aware that his days were numbered.
