Remember Craig Mack?

Rumors are circulating that the former Bad Boy Artist has finally surfaced and is allegedly part of a religious cult down in South Carolina.

According to MediaTakeOut, the "Flavor In Ya Ear" rapper is a member of a South Carolina cult run by an 82-year-old American radio preacher named Brother R. G. Stair. Mack is allegedly living in a "secure compound" ran by the preacher, who is said to be a convicted sex offender charged with raping two women on the compound. The rapper's family is "very upset" at his choice to live in such circumstances, according to the MTO post.

Though there is no official confirmation as to whether or not this report is true, the site posted an audio clip with what sounds like Mack's voice speaking to Brother Stair about changing his life and joining the organization. Take a listen below and hear for yourself:
