He was said to have died of heart failure in a hospital near his home in South Carolina on Monday.

Hailing from Brentwood, Long Island, he cut his first single while still a teenager, under the name MC EZ.

The hip-hop star later rose to fame in 1994 with the hit single Flava In Ya Ear.

He was also one of the first artists to release an album on Sean Combs (P Diddy’s) Bad Boy Records which quickly became one of the most significant in hip-hop history.

He later released a second album, ‘Operation: Get Down’, after splitting with Diddy but eventually left music and devoted his life to religion.

Diddy, DJ Scratch, LL Cool J, Funkmaster Flex are among those who have paid tributes to the star.

Rest In Peace! Good brother… #CraigMack …. Alvin Toney love my brother…
