Looks like Craig Mack’s was close eventuality, and he knew, and congestive heart failure was the culprit, according to his close friend and fellow Hip Hop artist, Erick Sermon. E Double broke the news Tuesday, hours after Craig passed away at his South Carolina home, telling TMZ Craig had only 25% of his heart working in his final months.
As was reported, the coroner would only say Craig had died of natural causes, so, Sermon, shed more light on Craig’s final days. He says the Bad Boy Records pioneer had called his closest friends, including Erick and Biz Markie, 6 months ago to tell them what he was battling, but didn’t want them to see him in his frail condition. He was very thin and walking with a cane.
Erick says Craig maintained his personality, though, they eventually hooked up and even recorded some music, and shot a documentary before he died.
