DJ Scratch took to social media after attending Craig Mack‘s memorial service to share his disappointment with the fact that he was the only celebrity in attendance.
In a post on his Instagram page, Scratch shared a photo of Craig’s funeral program with the caption:
I’ve never been to a service for someone famous & I was the only famous person to show up.
Very weird 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. Craig Mack.
The news was shocking to many considering how all of the folks in the industry flooded social media with their tributes and faux love when they learned of Craig’s passing.
See the original post below.
As you can imagine all eyes were on Diddy and folks had questions as to why he didn’t go and pay his respects.
DJ Scratch tried to smooth things over by saying the Bad Boy head honcho didn’t even know about the service and that he offered to pay for Craig’s funeral.
Then, he went on to post a weird tribute to Diddy while remembering Craig Mack. Chile….
When I left Craig’s memorial service I called @Diddy to thank him for giving Craig the platform for the world to know Craig Mack’s music. I told him I just left the service, he said “They buried Craig already, what service are you talking about?!?”
He didn’t know about the memorial service. @diddy offered to pay for Craig Mack’s funeral, but the religious community Craig was in declined. None of his Friends or colleagues were allowed to attend his funeral. Diddy respected their wishes. Craig was immediately buried on the property where he lived. Yesterday’s service was a memorial for Craig’s friends in NY & for fans to attend thrown by Craig’s childhood friend Alvin Toney.
When I speak of Craig Mack, I speak of him BEFORE Bad Boy. When I spoke at his service yesterday I mentioned that when I met Craig he’s was being bullied by his friends. So I kept him close to me because I didn’t like the way EPMD’s entourage treated him. Craig was the first Hit Squad member, he was on tour with EPMD, he was around while 4 Albums were recorded. Strictly Business, Unfinished Business, Business As Usual & Business Never Personal were all recorded while Craig was there but Craig never got one verse. When I found out he was sleeping in cars while we were away on tour I suggested he come on tour with us & be my assistant. Because the people he grew up with weren’t helping him. I didn’t understand that.
Then EPMD broke up & everybody careers were in jeopardy BUT they all had record deals. Craig didn’t have a deal so he was assed out. After the breakup Alvin Toney took Craig to Puff & shit took off. I was happy for Craig because he finally made it!!! Then Puff hired me to do scratches on Bad Boy Albums, like 112’s “Dance For Me” read the credits. Diddy knew my group broke up & he made me his DJ, provided opportunity for me when no one would as well as Craig. If you look at my post the day Craig passed I praised @Diddy for signing Craig because I saw what he went through. I said no famous people showed up to Craig’s memorial service was weird because I saw so much love online, but I didn’t see a line outside. If @Diddy didn’t say yes, there be no Flava in our ears. Salute Diddy!!!
WAYMENT!? There are a lot of inconsistencies in DJ Scratch’s post.
How about a good ole RIP Craig Mack and let’s leave it at that.
