Music mogul Diddy might not have made it to Craig Mack‘s private funeral this year but is making sure fans know just how special the late emcee is on his birthday.

Puff Daddy went to Instagram this week to send b-day love in Mack’s memory.

Happy Birthday CRAIG MACK!!! God bless

Back in March, New York producer DJ Scratch revealed why celebs like Diddy didn’t attend Mack’s private family funeral.

Recently, Diddy reflected on the time he spent around Craig.

“Aye what’s up y’all? I’m a little under the weather but I wanted to take out the time to just pay respects to Craig Mack. He was the first artist that we released on Bad Boy but he was more than just our first artist. He was such a sweet, like, kind, loving, person. He was definitely a special, special individual. And I just wanna make sure y’all know how important he is to the Bad Boy legacy. As an emcee, he took an unorthodox approach and he was a great man.”

Once news broke out about Mack’s sudden death, various high-profile musicians remembered his life.
