Former Bad Boy Records stud Ma$e is reportedly putting his entire focus on re-sparking a rap career after moving away from churches he started up with his ex-wife. #masemoveson
Details of Mason Betha’s current status with two regional churches sprouted online Monday (July 21).
n-again, off-again rapper/pastor Mase has officially left his parishioners of the El Elyon International Church high and dry … and has run back to the rap game full time. TMZ broke the story … and it’s sensational in every way. Mase, who “retired” from rap in 1999 to pursue a career in the ministry, built up thousands of followers split into two churches in Atlanta and Phoenix … preaching the virtues of marriage and family values.

Reports claim Ma$e is once again fully rededicated to his music career.
That all came crashing down earlier this year when Mase and his wife divorced, causing most of his flock to flee in anger. As for those stalwart loyalists, well Mase says … screw them. He’s dropped all ties with both churches and is playing regular rap gigs around L.A., jumping back into his former lifestyle hardcore. (TMZ)
Mason Betha recently revealed when his next solo album would likely drop.
“My next single will probably be me, Rick Ross and Kanye. It’s called ‘Billboard.’ So, we got something really serious coming,” Ma$e said in an interview. “We just got done shooting a video in LA, in the desert, so, it’s gonna be really sexy. The next one [after ‘Billboard’]. … We got an album in the works, it should be out the first week in October. It’s gonna have Ye, Ross, Puff, Dipset, it’s gonna be really special. … This is what I would have put out after [1997’s] Harlem World. It’s gonna be really special.” (Hot 107.9)
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.
