Former Bad Boy Records rapper Ma$e recently updated fans on his relationship with one-time music rivals Cam’ron and Jim Jones and said they are all a family.
Despite a messy mid-2000’s publicized dispute, Ma$e said maturity and growth have solidified their connection.
“We just made different decisions, that’s the honest way to put it,” Ma$e said in an interview. “Sometimes you make a decision that puts you on a different path. I made decisions that didn’t go along with their decisions. So it just put us in different places, like, again, I love Cam, Cam is my brother. I don’t just say that for a media standpoint way. Jim is my brother, we’ll see each other today, I would think it’s all good. You’re too grown to be going through that.” (“Sway In The Morning”)
Last summer, Cam took a swipe at Mason Betha on his “60 Rackz” remix.
Feels like that storied run from 2004-2006 where we’d have these three artists regularly collaborating. Funkmaster Flex debuts to remix to Jim Jones’ “60 Rackz” with help from Killa Cam and Weezy F. Baby. The original can be found on Capo’s Vampire Life 2 mixtape, out now. While it’s turned into an all out week of Weezy on the internets, Cam’s not messing around on his verse as he has some words for Ma$e. “I be me, you be you, apologies to Groovy Lou. Sorry bruh I ain’t f*cking with Ma$e, yeah yeah tell him you be cool. Me I rep that Hud 6, I ain’t even going to play with him. Harlem underworld for real, you can fool Wale and them. The mack, well, that’s black on black. True facts, I’m crack on tracks. Play around, I’ll lay you down, 60 racks on your cap ni**a….” (Miss Info TV)
Back in spring 2011, Jim Jones hit up SOHH and said he had no issues with Ma$e.
“I haven’t seen Betha or any sh*t like that,” Jones told SOHHreferring to Mason “Mase” Betha. “But you know, it would be good to see Betha. Maybe we could go and play basketball with him or something because I ain’t seen Betha in a minute. We all came from the same hood, above all. Money sometimes separates the closest of friends but we grown at this point. I ain’t got nothing against Betha.” (SOHH)
In 2004, Dipset released the anti-Ma$e track “Take Em To Church.”
“Yo, you try to handle us,” Cam’ron raps. “Get on the air and damage us/Screaming out Harlem (huh) like you ain’t just abandoned us (Where you been at?)/Well let me fill you in, now it’s a whole clan of us/Blink so mad, he went and beat up Canibus/Zeke got shot then Zeke locked up (then)/E got killed (what else?)/B popped up/But B hopped up and still broke out his chest/On probation, Doe on house arrest (what up Doe)” (“Take Em To Church”)
