Former Bad Boy Artist Craig Mack, Dies At 46 

It’s sad to report that New York City veteran, Craig Mack, who was a part of Diddy’s Bad Boy Records in the 90’s, has passed away at the age of 46. Reports say that Mack had died of heart failure at a hospital near his Walterboro, S.C., home Monday. 

Mack was the first artist to release an album under Diddy’s Bad Boy Records with Project Funk da World. The album’s highlight included the hit single “Flava in Ya Ear,” which went platinum and reached as high as #9 on Billboard's Hot 100 charts back in 1994. 

Several members of the hip hop community have already taken to to social media in the early hours of Tuesday morning to voice their condolences. 

DJ Scratch of EPMD fame posted a photo of Mack with the caption, “I just got a disturbing phone call. I cannot believe this dude is gone. He just reached out a couple of weeks ago for me to speak on his documentary about his life. Because Craig was my rodie on tour. He would set up & break down my turntables every night on tour. Rest In Peace Lil Bro.” 

While Funkmaster Flex also posted a tribute of his own to Instagram. His caption read, “Rest in Peace! Good brother … #CraigMack …Alvin Toney love my brother.”

New Heat! MASE ft. Puff Daddy & DJ Khaled "Rap Rushmore" 

Welcome back. 

If the "Oracle" was any indication, Mase is back and he has something to prove. Over a sample of ESG's "UFO", Bad Boy's goodfella fly guy empties a full clip of bars galore on his brand new cut, aptly titled "Rap Rushmore." With Puff Daddy and DJ Khaled in tow, the Harlem vet "I'm rap Rushmore, feel like I should bust more," he snaps over the vintage instrumental, before adding, "I leave the beat in forensics." Like "Oracle," the new fiery cut is Murda Mase at his finest. His fellow Bad Boy pal starts off the track with his signature ad-libs ("Yeah they thought the party was over"), while Khaled does the same midway through the track ("Some people are legendary, some people are iconic").



According to the folks at TMZ, the Bronx-based rapper was arrested last Thursday (Nov. 30) for felony possession of a .22 caliber Beretta and a bag of marijuana. The site's sources report that police found the bag of weed in his underwear after they pulled him over. Q's lawyer says the police had no reason to stop him and search he and his friends. 

Q's now been released from jail without bail, and his Highbridge The Label comrade A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie was there in court when he was arraigned. Q's out of the woods for now, but his next court case for this incident is in February. 

While it's never fun to head to court, it doesn't feel like this bit of legal trouble is too serious. That's good, because he's been making some serious moves over the last year or so, and, naturally, jail time can be the quickest way to slow anyone's momentum.

#MyCalvins Campaign feat. Solange, A$AP Mob, Kelela, Dev Hynes & More (Video) 

Calvin Klein rolled out a really well put-together ad campaign this month. Following appearances from Frank Ocean, Young Thug, FKA twigs and Kendrick Lamar in 2016, the #MyCalvins 2017 campaign features Solange, A$AP Mob, Kelela, Dev Hynes, Polachek, Kindness and more. With themes that bring together family and unity, CK is set to roll out more of its “Our Family” ads throughout the Spring 2018 season.


As you may know, JAY-Z turns 48 today. Of course, Dec. 4 a date every HOV superfan has memorized since he released The Black Album, with its standout early track “December 4th.” Ahead of his birthday, the Brooklyn Nets gifted the Brooklyn native (and former member of Nets ownership) with a cake so precisely designed, you wouldn’t even want to take a piece. 

The dream cake was delivered backstage prior to the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum tour stop Saturday (Dec. 2) in Long Island, NY. Roc Nation’sEmory Jones gave fans a look at the work of art on Instagram, captioning the video, “The Big Homie done touch down at Nassau Coliseum. Early birthday love from Brent Yormark and the team. Salute King... #444 #HOV.” 

We believe he meant Brett Yormark, who is the CEO of the Brooklyn Nets. His twin-brother, Michael Yormark, is the president & chief of branding and strategy for Roc Nation. The cake features images encompassing Jigga's life story -- from “The Story of O.J.” visuals to the Roc Nation logo, a Grammy Award (for which JAY has eight nominations this year) and much more, this dessert had a little bit of everything.

DAMN! Meek Mill Labeled ‘A Danger to the Community’ as Bail Is Denied 

Meek Mill's legal issues continue to go from bad to worse. Last week, a petition to free Meek was denied, and according to TMZ, Judge Genece Brinkley has denied his request for bail. 

Documents regarding Meek's case say that Brinkley not only called him a "flight risk," but described him as "a danger to the community." There's no indication on how Brinkley came to either of these conclusions, or why she'd apparently assume he'd used something called "Fast Flush" to help him achieve clean drug tests. 

Many have dived into Meek's case and admitted he's not been a shining star while on parole, but there's a reason why the FBI was investigatingBrinkley. There have been claims of bias against Meek Mill from Brinkley, and an insane claim that she asked Meek to remake "On Bended Knee" by Boyz II Men and give her a shout out on the track. There's also word she wanted him to leave Roc Nation for a company that a friend of hers runs.
