The brother of late rapper Big L has called out Mase and said the emcee-turned-pastor is living a fabricated life.
According to L’s older brother Donald Phinazee, Mase and L parted ways after their Children of the Corn rap crew broke up in the 1990’s.
“Well, L was the first one out, but his career didn’t take off first. Then Mase got that deal with Puff, he started acting stupid. I had to run Mase off the block because his head got way too big for his body. You see, all these guys looked up to Lamont…Mase is a b*tch, a straight b*tch. I couldn’t believe some of the sh*t he was saying on the radio. I have no type of respect for that dude. And I would love to speak to him face to face. I actually reached out to him and he told me I need to find God. He’s fake, man. He ain’t into the religion for real. That dude has always been running. He’s scared. Basically, his head got too big for his d*mn body. I was the one to run him out of 140th street. He was talking so much sh*t and talking down to people. He must have forgot who he was around. Well, one day he started talking crazy when I was right there on the block and told him I was going to punch him in the mouth and of course he ran, called his boys. And then he went over to Lamont and L told me to chill, saying Mase was aight. But I told L he can’t come back to the block, so that’s when Mase started hanging on Lenox.” (VIBE)
Last summer, Children of the Corn’s Herb McGruff talked about Mase and L’s glory days.
“We was young and dumb and even though we’re doing our own things now, they’re still my dudes though. Everything came together good when we would be in the studio. It was natural, really. Besides the rap, we all grew up together d*mn near like me and Big L came outta 139th Street around 140th and came was from 140th too. Most of us would be around 140th. Mase would always come around because he was around 134th, we all grew up together…I don’t know what Mase wants to do, I don’t know what’s up with him these days but Mase is Mase. I don’t know what’s up with him but I still love the brother. If he wants to be a pastor and wanna rhyme, that’s on him. Whatever he wants to do, I wish him the best but if he wants to do another Children of the Corn album, let’s go. I can’t wait.” (SOHH Guest Star)
Over the weekend, Cam’ron called out Mase for not appearing at late promoter Huddy 6’s funeral earlier this month.
Cam’ron has taken aim at fellow rapper MA$E after he failed to attend the New York funeral of their tragic pal HUDDY 6. Ma$e, who recruited Huddy 6 as a member of his group Harlem World, was nowhere in sight – and Cam’ron has voiced his anger on his Twitter.com page. In reply to a fan who asked whether Ma$e was in attendance at the memorial service, he wrote, “h*ll no dat f**kin sucka a** n**ga (sic).” Cam’ron grew up with Huddy 6 in the Big Apple’s tough Harlem neighbourhood and has previously credited his pal with saving his life when he was shot twice in 2005.

Huddy was widely known for his association with Mase.
As a member of Mase’s Harlem World group, Huddy 6 was an artist of the then Bad Boy Records star. Last week, the rapper died as a result of a car accident in New York. The group, which consisted of rappers including Loon and Cardan, and was presented by Mase, released a gold 1999 group album in The Movement. While Mase, who has not spoken publicly in several weeks was not present, Cam’ron and U.N. partner Vado were among those present. (Hip Hop DX)
