According to reports, Mack’s former producer Alvin Toney visited the late emcee at the Overcomer Ministry church in Walterboro, last week, to film a documentary about his life and decision to focus on his religion.

“Nobody got to understand his story,” Toney said. “I wanted the world to know the talent he had. It was something I wanted people to enjoy, but it was cut short because he was very religious and wanted to go to church.”

Mack reportedly revealed to Toney that he was ill.
