Former Bad Boy Records protégé Ma$e is acknowledging the buzz he has put together as of late after hooking up with fellow New York native Troy Ave and longtime pal Diddy for their "My Style" remix. #NYBack
Mason Betha posted a photo of himself and Puff Daddy onto Instagram this past weekend.
"#NY sounds good again... Thanks to @troyave @mase @iamdiddy #NWE #Harlem of course," Ma$e captioned to the photo. (Ma$e's Instagram)
The crew's unexpected revamped track premiered online Friday (June 20).
Troy Ave rounds up a couple New York icons and the King of the South for his Chase N. Cashe-produced remix to "Your Style" off his latest mixtape BSB Vol. 4. The Brooklyn spitter, who was named one of XXL's Freshmen, takes it back to New York in the '90s on his nostalgic remix featuring Puff Daddy, Ma$e, and T.I. "Now all you hear is New York this, New York that / Let's keep it real mothaf*ckas, I brought New York back," boasts Troy, who credits himself for the return of G-Unit and Dipset. (Rap-Up)
Days away from New Year's Eve, 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)
In October, he 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... This got to be something special. A couple free shows & visits #NOWWEEVEN. I'm listening also to Life after Death, All Eyes On Me and Reasonable Doubt... Just so u know what I'm thinking. #NOWWEEVEN. @iamdiddy should be on MY album unless he gets saved and leave music... LM_ _ O #NOWWEEVEN. TO ME @Mr_Camron IS HOMETEAM. SO "NO" we don't have any beefs. I can only comment on what is factually correct! #NOWWEEVEN. @iamdiddy I forgot I was the first SeanJohn super model... we should definitely be even!!! #NOWWEEVEN."
