Producer Easy Mo Bee has come forward to reflect on the life of late hip-hop veteran Craig Mack. The “Flava In Ya Ear” producer has shared some heartfelt posts about the former Bad Boy Records rapper.

Mo Bee has spent the last 24 hours reflecting on Craig’s life and their final conversations.

#RIP #CraigMack 1971-2018 The man who rapped "Whatcha gonna do When God Comes?" has unfortunately passed away yesterday on March 12, 2018 Several reliable sources have contacted me saying that it is true that #CraigMack passed away yesterday, March 12. I'll tell you what's so disappointing about his passing away… about 3 months ago or so, I finally got ahold of him and we talked on the phone for over an hour. Most of the call was me trying to persuade him to start making music again. He felt like after giving his life to God that maybe he shouldn't rap again. I begged him and explained to him that he had every right to still praise God through his music. I told him that as long as it was genuine and not a blasphemous gimmick, he could still reach souls and spread his message. Finally, he gave in and said "Ok Mo Bee, i'll do it." I sent him 5 or 6 tracks and then I never heard back from him. I made a follow-up call and still no Craig. Maybe he knew he was about to die but just didn't want to tell me. One of the reliable sources I spoke to not long ago tonight told me that he had told somebody "I'm not gonna be here much longer." God rest his soul. Now I'm thinking about the record we recorded together called "When God Comes." He wanted to be ready. That was always on his mind. I pray that today he has finally made it into the Kingdom Of Heaven because that's all that mattered to him. I'm so in denial. Can't believe he's gone. Bless you, my brother. No more suffering. No more pain. The Lord has called you home and finally said well done. EMB

Yesterday, Bad Boy Records boss Diddy reflected on the time he spent around Mack.

“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.”

Earlier the same day, rap star Eminem shared some words about Mack’s sudden death.

Throughout the day, hip-hop and former Bad Boy artists have remembered Craig.
