Major Hit: "Flava In Ya Ear" (1994)

Other Hit: "Get Down" (1994)

The summer of 1994 was the summer of Bad Boy Records, which kicked off with Craig Mack. His Easy Mo Bee-produced single, "Flava In Ya Ear," was a mainstay on both the streets and the charts. The first release on Puffy's new label cracked the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at No. 9. But soon thereafter The Notorious B.I.G. got his career going—"Juicy" dropped that summer—and Mack got lost in the shuffle. Despite his scene-stealing guest appearance on the song's classic remix, Biggie later went on to say "Nah, I don't fuck with that dude." Which maybe had something to do with Mack's disappearing act. Still he's no one-hit wonder, as his follow-up hit "Get Down" clearly proves.
