Damn, son! Bad Boy Records is lookin' like the Overlook Hotel of Rap right now - a cursed entity with the data to turn ya body into anti-matter, and anyone who was ever employed there is guaranteed eternal damnation in its ballroom of lost souls. Protect Black Rob at all costs.
R.I.P to the only rapper with a fly government name, a pioneering figure in Gettin' Retarded, and an arguable forefather of what's now known as 'Mumble-Rap'. Granted, both of Craig Mack's albums were glorified ashtrays, but from the MC EZ & Troup 12" in 1988 right up to his indie 12"s a decade or so later, Mack was #actually a Consistently Good Singles Artist™. Here's yer proof in the form of a generic list post:
MC EZ & Troup - Just Rhymin' (1988)
Craig Mack - Flava In Ya Ear (1994)
Craig Mack ft. Notorious B.I.G, LL Cool J etc - Flava In Ya Ear (Remix) (1994)
Craig Mack - Making Moves With Puff (1994)
Craig Mack - Get Down (1994)
Craig Mack - Jockin' My Style (1997)
Craig Mack - Style (1997)
Craig Mack - Please Listen To My Demo (1999)
Craig Mack - The Wooden Horse (1999)
Craig Mack - Brand New N*gga (2000)
Craig Mack - Mack Come Thru (2000)
You won't be around next year, and, sadly, neither will he now. Drinks in the air for Mack, folks: the only man to get any decent use out of Das EFX post-1992.
