When news broke that Hip Hop legend Craig Mack died from heart failure at the age of 46, we could only imagine how star studded the home going celebration would be for the Long Island MC. But according to the legendary DJ Scratch, he was the only famous face at the funeral.
Known for his iconic 1994 hit Flava In Ya Ear, Mack got an early start with Bad Boy Entertainment after Puff Daddy discovered him. The music mogul took to social media to salute the rapper for starting the foundation of the label when he heard the news.
Craig Mack, you were the first artist to release music on Bad Boy and gave us our first hit. You always followed your heart and you had an energy that was out of this world. You believed in me and you believed in Bad Boy. I will never forget what you did for hip-hop. pic.twitter.com/qvnxRTcdXv

So we find it odd that no one decided to show up. There is the question of whether the funeral was only for close friends and family. And it’s quite possible that it was kept under wraps, not giving others the opportunity to make it.
