G.O.O.D. Music's Big Sean may have a boss who does not use telephones to communicate, but the Detroit rapper recently received a phone call from an equally big hip-hop star.
According to Big Sean, ex-Bad Boy Ma$e recently got at him out of the blue, leading to a speculated upcoming collaboration.
"Mase just hit me up, too. We got something in the works," Sean revealed in an interview. "He surprised me, he called me just out of nowhere. He was like, 'What's up, this Mase -- I'm really digging your style. We need to work on something.' I'm like, 'What the f*ck?' [laughs] Nah, but, that's somebody I came up listening to, that whole Bad Boy era -- we got something in the works for him, a lot of people." (Cipha Sounds & Peter Rosenberg)
Recently, The LOX's Jadakiss talked about his former labelmate making a hip-hop comeback.
"Murda's my brother from another mother for life, but this game ain't to be played with or tampered with. If he gon' come back, he's got to come all the way back or stay over there at the pulpit," Jada said. "I love him, but he's got to let me know that he's dead serious -- he keep coming back for a short cup of coffee [and] then leaves. He's got to stay for breakfast if he's going to come back." (BET)
Last month, the Harlem-bred emcee opened up on his multiple rap comebacks and why this return is legit.
"Flex, let me tell you something before I go, though," Ma$e said, "I can only do music if I can do it the way I can do it. That's what be making me stop. I don't want to do music in a box. Like everybody say what I can't do and he can't say this, but if you need me to come do something for you, I've gotta be able to come to that event. So I'm taking all the limitations off. They gonna have to pray for me. I regret not giving myself room for growth. That's what I regret. I went so hard left that I didn't really leave no room to be an individual, a human being. ... I still put God over music any day. I just didn't give myself room to grow. I went from one extreme to another extreme." ("The Funkmaster Flex Show")
Recently, current Bad Boy star French Montana hyped up the return of Diddy's protege.
"We were in a Miami studio last night and Ma$e just stopped by," Montana exclusively told XXL. "We were just workin' on my album. We recorded two songs together--me, [Rick] Ross and Ma$e. You might hear [Ma$e] on either my album [Excuse My French] or Ross' [God Forgives, I Don't] or both." Although the current 2012 XXL Freshman wouldn't divulge any further details on the songs, he did mention that Ma$e is sounding pretty sharp and this collaboration with himself, Rozay and the former Bad Boy has been in the works. "We been planning it," French said. "Ma$e sounds good, sound like he never left. His flow is crazy. We're going to let the world hear soon enough. Stay tuned. Just stay tuned." (XXL Mag)
