Former Bad Boy Records artist Ma$e has surfaced back into the spotlight this weekend after reuniting with former boss Diddy at a pre-Grammy Awards party.
According to reports, Puffy and the Harlem, New York native linked up in Los Angeles late Friday (January 24).
The 90's were on and popping again Friday night in L.A. during Dr. Dre's pre-Grammy Party ... but nothing was cooler than Puff Daddy reuniting on stage with his former protege Ma$e. Diddy and Ma$e killed a stellar set of a songs including "Been Around the World" and "All About the Benjamins" at the Belasco Theatre ... but their rendition of "'Mo Money, 'Mo Problems" was off the charts. Eminem hit the stage later in the evening with Dr. Dre ... who also reunited with Blackstreet to perform "No Diggity." (TMZ)
Days away from New Year's Eve, Mason Betha unleashed his "Why Can't We" song.
After a lengthy hiatus from the music, Ma$e has released a new song called "Why Can't We." He shouts out Drake and Kanye West in the beginning the song, acknowledging the fact that both artists are huge fans of his style. He then proceeds to spit two verses with references ranging from 2Pac to Toni Kukoc. "Why Can't We" is a smooth, signature Ma$e song with female vocals that are currently credited to "Her." The song will appear on the Harlemite's upcoming project, Now We Even. (Complex)
Last year, G.O.O.D. Music head Kanye West spoke out on his respect for Ma$e.
"It's one of the reasons why I used to love Mase as--or I still love Mase as a rapper. Because he got to the point. I always thought he'd make an amazing pastor. He got to the point so quick and sometimes I'm talking and I'm thinking out loud and I'm not getting to the point as quick and I like how that man can just get his point across and how he has that skill set. He knows what he wants to do and that's the reason why the universe responds to him like that. He just threw a carnival in L.A. where 10,000 people came out." (Hot 107.9)
In October, Betha resorted to his Instagram page to break the news of a follow-up project to 2004's Welcome Back LP.
"No abbreviations use #NOWWEEVEN that's the only conversation I'm having. y€$ #NOWWEEVEN is the album title... Lets make it happen!!! Right now I'm listening to all my early freestyles & songs...
