As Mack rests today, he was said to have suffered from a heart disease. Although, he resigned from rapping to commit to his faith. Mack was still loved by the hip hop community. Alvin Toney, of Bad Boy entertainment visited Mack days before his passing.
Toney saw his dear friend a final time last week.He visited the former emcee at the Overcomer Ministry church he attends in Walterboro to film a documentary about Mack, and his decision to pass on fame for a life of deep religious conviction.“Nobody got to understand his story,” Toney said. “I wanted the world to know the talent he had. It was something I wanted people to enjoy, but it was cut short because he was very religious and wanted to go to church.”Tony said Mack told him during his visit that he had been ill for some time and knew he wouldn’t live long.
