Another sad day. Producer Alvin Toney confirmed Craig Mack’s passing on Monday night at a hospital near his home in Walterboro, South Carolina. Mack was only 46 years old. Every loss hurts but this one hits hard. “Project: Funk Da World” was a wildly uneven debut album, but one I still listen to today, because Mack’s unorthodox flow and raspy vocal tone were mesmerizing then and continue to be today. Both DJ Scratch and Funkmaster Flex shared their thoughts via Instagram and I’ll include them below with some classic joints.
