DJ Scratch hit Instagram late last night to reveal that he was "the only famous person to show up" at Craig Mack's memorial service at the Faith Baptist Church in Hempstead, New York on Wednesday (March 28).
Scratch - who was one of the first to post about Mack's passing earlier this month - shared an image of the late rapper's order of service along with a startling caption.
"I've never been to a service for someone famous & I was the only famous person to show up. Very weird day today, but what puts a smile on my face is that Lil Bro was at peace way before he passed away. That's what matters most to me," he wrote.
He later shouted out memorial organizer Alvin Toney. R.A. the Rugged Man and well-known Hip Hop journalist Shaheem Reid both posted clips from the service to social media. Reid also reported that the memorial was attended by Mack's friends and industry associates International Special, former Bad Boy executive June Balloon, and DJ Curt Flirt.
Mack passed away on March 12 at the age of 47. It was later reported that the "Flava In Ya Ear" rapper died from heart failure at a hospital near his home in Walterboro, South Carolina.
Many Hip Hop stars, including Bad Boy Records founder Sean "Diddy" Combs, turned to social media to pay tributes and share their memories of Mack following his passing.
