MÚSIC ICÒNIC DELS 90

El raper Craig Mack mor als 46 anys

L'artista novaiorquès ha tingut una aturada cardíaca

El raper Craig Mack ha mort aquest dimarts als 46 anys, segons han confirmat alguns dels seus col·legues a les xarxes socials. De moment, es desconeixen les causes de la mort, encara que, segons el Daily News, el cantant ha mort d'una aturada cardíaca en un hospital de Walterboro, a Carolina del Sud.

El músic novaiorquès és conegut per ser una de les primeres estrelles que va debutar a la discogràfica Bad Boy Records de Puff Daddy, que va llançar el 1994 el seu primer hit musical Flava in Ya Ear.

Mack va arribar a col·laborar amb reconeguts músics del gènere que també formaven part del segell, com The Notorious BIG i Busta Rhymes.

 
 
 

 Craig Mack was one of the few people to strike lighting twice in Hip Hop. First with "Get Retarded" then with Bad boy. After his first strike of lightning, he went through a lot of struggles, a lot. He mentions his struggles in many interviews after he blew up with Bad Boy. You all know how cruel the public can be when someone falls off in Hip Hop. Unfortunately, that cruelty is ALWAYS by "Our People". Craig recently requested em to speak about these things in his upcoming documentary because I embraced him during his trying times after just meeting him. If I had to descriu him with one word I would say "Innocent". He was sooooooo innocent, a dopi MC, a hell of a beat maker & cool GREAT Dubti. Craig was Hit Squad before K-Solo, Redman & Das Efx were discovered. Unfortunately Craig never got the opportunity to get his chance with the Hit Squad because EPMD broke up. Everyone's careers were in jeopardy & Craig was back on his own again. A few years later, EPMD's longtime bodyguard Alvin Toney took Craig Mack's donem to Puffy, Puff signed him & put Bad Boy Records on the map with the platinum single "Flavor In Ja Ear". I cried when I saw Craig had finally made it to superstardom because I saw the struggle, the set backs, I was extremely proud of him!!!! The underdog finally wins!!!!!! He's my definition of never giving up when you're going through it & he's an example of what can happen when you believe in someone regardless of their set backs. This industry is very cruel & backstabbing, I've saw my fair share of it & Craig has seen even more than em. So years ago he left the industry & gave his life to GOD. At that moment is when he was most happy, regardless if no one understood his life changing decision. This has hit home for a number of reasons. First, is because he's the first person in our camp to pass away. News that wouldn't expect to hear for another 40 years. Second, because he passed away 3 days after Biggie. I won't say rest in peace, because he was already at peace before he passed. I will miss you Craig.

Després de la tràgica notícia, nombroses estrelles del món del rap han donat el condol a la família. És el cas de Funk Flex i del productor DJ Scratch, que li ha dedicat unes emotives paraules al seu compte d'Instagram.

"Acabo de rebre una trucada confusa, no puc creure que estigui mort. Va contactar amb mi fa dues setmanes per parlar sobre un documental sobre la seva vida perquè Craig era el meu amic. En la gira, ell preparava i trencava els meus tocadiscos cada nit... Descansa en pau, germà petit", ha apuntat al costat d'una foto del malaguanyat artista.
