Former Bad Boy Records rapper Ma$e has officially announced plans to release a new single called “Billboard” with help from fellow hip-hop heavyweights Kanye West and Rick Ross. #TheComebackKid
Along with the new track, Mason Betha also revealed when his next solo album will drop.
“My next single will probably be me, Rick Ross and Kanye. It’s called ‘Billboard.’ So, we got something really serious coming,” Ma$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)
Mason Betha posted a photo of himself and Puff Daddy onto Instagram last weekend.
“#NY sounds good again… Thanks to @troyave @mase @iamdiddy #NWE #Harlem of course,” Ma$e captioned to the photo. (Ma$e’s Instagram)
He appeared on New York rapper Troy Ave‘s “Like My Style” remix last week.
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.

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.
