krazy Like That Glue: The Craig Mack Story

lethal5lethal5 Members Posts: 1,889 ✭✭✭✭✭
Learn interesting things like...

*In the beginning, he clowned Puff for wearing a 3-piece suit at the Bad Boy office...which pretty much 🤬 his career & relationship with Puff from the jump....and also costed him a feature on Ready to Die

*He was supposed to be the 2nd voice on Biggies Warning, b4 Biggie ended up handling double-duty himself

*He was mad stubborn, whereas Biggie took direction from Puff and took his ideas to higher heights. Macks unwillingness to take Puffs advice also 🤬 his career

Pretty interesting watch...

    Never knew he had that much back story before BadBoy and it's cool to see an emcee work from the bottom yo the top like that

    This also is a grand tale of what happens when you try to keep yourself while trying to navigate the world of entertainment

    Some may say he handled his opportunities wrong but Im proud that he stayed true to himself

    I never understand why forbash Craig and always talk down in comparion to BIG. U gotta look at it from the in the moment context. Back then Craig had hype and his own hit. Puff just aint push him no more cuz Big blew.... It was salaways a competitve rivalray between he 2 on Bad Boy.

    Of course he thought he was nicer than BIG, he blew up first and big was getting shine on his smash record. I think big saw what happened with mack and figured he would be better off listening to puff and keeping puff happy since puff was letting BIG do his 🤬 🤬 IMO. Lol at mack making fun of puff's suit...I kept imagining that hard knocks life scene where Dame clowning on clue. Puffy wasn't having it hahaha

    At the time.. This was factual.. Juicy is a classic but it didn't run airwaves like Flava in your ear did back then..

    I never compared the two.

    Juicy was a monster cause it had mad commercial appeal to it

    But Flava in your ear was a straight b-boy classic

    Yeah. I remember when Flava in ya ear dropped vividly. It was getting madd spins and then they dropped the remix smdh. Juicy couldn't compete with that. Big Poppa was the better and more stand out single for Big.

    C/S the bold. Anytime I hear the song or the beat I go right back to 94.

    Im still trying to figure how juicy was a classic. 🤬 was garbage to me. It must be a nyc thing

    Lol @ tricking him into doing "Flava in ya Ear"...

    I don't think the whole Craig Mack as a Mack/🤬 would have ever worked...

    I wonder how many more dope beats he passed on?...
  • 5 Grand5 Grand Members Posts: 12,869 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I remember reading a Lord Finesse interview. He said when Craig Mack got signed to Bad Boy he didn't buy a car. So he was riding the subway while Flavor in Your Ear was a big hit on the radio.

    I think the fact that he didn't buy a car with his advance money messed his career up. There's only so much you can do without a car.
