Harlem rap veteran Ma$e no longer has to worry about dishing out $35,000 for an unpaid jewelry debt according to new reports.
Although details remain slim, the former Bad Boy Records star is reportedly off the hook.
Rapper Mase no longer has to worry about a $35,000 unpaid jewelry bill ... because a court just decided he is off the hook for the five-figure bling, TMZ has learned. TMZ broke the story ... Mase was sued last year by Aydin & Company -- a jewelry store in Atlanta -- who claimed the rapper bailed on a bill waaaaay back in 2005 (right about the time he was last popular). Mase had claimed he never signed for the bling and therefore owed them zilch. A Georgia court agreed with rapper and granted judgment in his favor this month -- which means he's totally in the clear.

Reports of the pricey lawsuit surfaced online over the winter.
Getting sued for $35,000 definitely does not feel so good to rapper Mase -- especially when he claims he doesn't even have any obligation to pay the money in the first place! Mase has been fighting an ongoing legal battle with Aydin and Company, a jeweler in Atlanta, since the summer. According to legal docs filed in Georgia, they claim Mase owes them $35,000 dating alllllll the way back to 2005. (TMZ)
Last month, Ma$e graced the stage at Hot 97's Summer Jam.
In fact, it was just this past Sunday (June 3) when the Harlem rapper made a surprise appearance at Hot 97's Summer Jam concert to which he performed alongside Wale, French Montana and fellow G.O.O.D. star, Big Sean for the remix to "Slight Work." The performers, along with other acts, were even spotted backstage chilling with Ma$e as the show went on. (XXL Mag)
Recently, he promised his latest return to the hip-hop spotlight is legit.
"Flex, let me tell you something before I go, though," Ma$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")
