Mase recently hinted at a new music deal that requires Diddy's cooperation and may involve his former Bad Boy home.
While not offering specific details, Mase did say he was in Manhattan to finalize a deal.
"We chilling, we chilling, we chilling," Mase said in an on-street video interview. "We're up here to make the deal go through. After we make the deal go through then we're gonna talk to TMZ. Aight? I thought y'all was slam cammin' me...After I talk to Puff, I'll be back to see you." (TMZ)
Despite contractual issues in the past with Diddy, The Lox's Sheek Louch recently confirmed his rap group would once again join forces with the mogul.
"We're grown now," Sheek said in an interview. "No man can do anything to me if I don't let it happen. Whatever happens, I have to put blame on myself first before I blame anyone else. And not saying that he's going to do that or anything like that. We're all in a better space now and I want to learn to make that big money and do it real big. So he'll be dealing with us with this album. He wants to put the project out and add his part on to things but we're going to do what we do and deliver that fire. Sh*t, we all come too far not to be able to do what we do." (Hip Hop DX)
Mase recently got back with Cam'ron for their "Get It" collaboration song.
"You ain't see this one coming," Mase said on the song's intro. "Man we so hungry...Harlem, Killa. Do it now. We're back for sure, the black Lyor/Chicks wanna sip from any glass I pour/Louis dress shirt, Gucci expert/My net worth make chicks wanna network...Bounce like a baby from a roof top/Or find me in the lair/Flying in the air, fine designer wear/diamonds in my ear, drama I don't wanna hear...they like if I come back I get 50 percent, nah, if I come back I need Diddy percent." ("Get It")
His last album dropped nearly five years ago.
Mase worked extensively with inner-city youth, became an in-demand inspirational speaker on the religious circuit, and published a memoir titled Revelations: There's a Light After the Lime. He returned with a new album, Welcome Back, in 2004. (All Music)
