RIP Craig Mack

Music, News, The Good Old Days

“Flava In Ya Ear” was the first tape I bought when I got my driver’s license back in the summer of ’94. It will forever bring me back to one of the best times of my teenage years.

RIP Craig Mack.

*UPDATE*

Check out this dope Amerigo Gazaway remix of the “Flava In Ya Ear (Remix)”.

Thanks to the “Mannequin Challenge”—the latest viral social media craze that even Hillary Clinton is taking part in—Rae Sremmurd’s go-to backing track “Black Beatles” just cracked the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. To celebrate, watch producer Mike Will Made-It break down how the track was made. Very dope.

Props to Genius.
