The viral Atlanta-based news anchors are back with a new tribute to Craig Mack.
Reporters Fred Blankenship and Mark Arum, who work for WSB-TV in Georgia, honored the rapper, who died Monday, during Tuesday’s broadcast.
“You wanna have a big breakfast before you head out of the house. A piece of Sizzlean with eggs and grits in between,” Arum said before handing the show back to Blankenship, stealing from Mack’s “Flava in Ya Ear.”
The two traded verses back and forth, including references to the traffic “everlasting like the toe on Pro-Keds” and the station meteorologist with “the data between your body and the antimatter.”
Inside the ‘cult’ where rapper Craig Mack spent his final years
Blankenship and Arum went viral in 2016 with a tribute to A Tribe Called Quest rapper Phife Dawg and last year for an homage to Tupac on his birthday. They’ve also slipped celebrations of Biggie and Prodigy into their broadcasts over the years.
Mack, a Long Island native who was one of the biggest names on Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Bad Boy Records in the mid-1990s, died of heart failure at a hospital near his Walterboro, S.C., home Monday, his producer told the Daily News.
He was 46.
