Me: I don't get Flava In Ya Ear. He's behind the beat.
My friend @evanhr: Or maybe Craig Mack has a new flow, and your brain literally isn't ready for it.

I am so sad to hear about the passing of Craig Mack. You cannot over emphasize the importance that "Flava In Ya Ear" had on hip hop!— Peter Rosenberg (@Rosenbergradio) March 13, 2018
RIP Craig Mack. His “Flava In Ya Ear” was Bad Boy’s first hit and it was a monster. It dominated 1994. Mack’s lisp added something ineffable and ill to the record. Made it a little more messy and more raw and more hiphop.— Touré (@Toure) March 13, 2018
He was a part of the famed BIG Mack marketing promo that helped launch Bad Boy + he single-handedly put the label on the board with Flava in Ya Ear. There was nothing at the time that sounded like that record; spacey beat and that oft-kilter, deliberate flow. He set the stage. pic.twitter.com/v9bfxdUQDb— Jayson Rodriguez (@jaysonrodriguez) March 13, 2018
I still remember the first time I heard Flava in your ear remix. Fell in love with hip hop in that moment. R.I.P Craig Mack.. 🙏🏾— Victor Cruz (@TeamVic) March 13, 2018
Rest in Peace CRAIG MACK. Long Island's own. We were proud of Craig when he came out with the little indie song as MC EZ & TROUP. Then a few years later he went on to make one of the biggest most iconic songs in Hip Hop history. Rest EZ. Never forgotten. We love ya bro— R.A. the Rugged Man (@RAtheRuggedMan) March 13, 2018
