After dropping off from the hip hop scene for a while Mack resurfaced in 2012 with a YouTube video saying he had joined Overcomer Ministry, a religious organization in South Carolina that some have labeled a "cult", surprising both fans and family. Mack appears adamant that he will not return to mainstream rapping.
