Former Bad Boy Records star Ma$e‘s long-awaited comeback to the mainstream spotlight has intensified with a new teaser track he put together with award-winning producer Timbaland.
While details are still scarce, Murda Mase unveiled the teaser record via Instagram this week.
Ma$e is apparently hard at work on his forthcoming LP, Now We Even. After putting forth the first fruits of his labor in December with the track “Why Can’t We,” Mr. Betha has taken to Instragram to show off something he is working on with Timbaland. In the clip, the Harlem rapper bobs his head in a low fitting Detroit Tigers hat to the clamorous track. The caption reads, “Ma$e x Timbo #NOWWEEVEN.” (XXL Mag)
Last month, Mason Betha and his former Bad Boy boss Diddy reunited in Los Angeles for a performance.
The 90’s were on and popping again Friday night in L.A. during Dr. Dre’s pre-Grammy Party … but nothing was cooler than Puff Daddy reuniting on stage with his former protege Ma$e. Diddy and Ma$e killed a stellar set of a songs including “Been Around the World” and “All About the Benjamins” at the Belasco Theatre … but their rendition of “‘Mo Money, ‘Mo Problems” was off the charts. Eminem hit the stage later in the evening with Dr. Dre … who also reunited with Blackstreet to perform “No Diggity.” (TMZ)
Days away from New Year’s Eve, Betha unleashed his “Why Can’t We” song.
After a lengthy hiatus from the music, Ma$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.

In October, he resorted to his Instagram page to break the news of a follow-up project to 2004’s Welcome Back LP.
