In a new interview, Jimmy questioned Ma$e’s street credentials and downplayed his new Diddy and DJ Khaled-featured “Rap Rushmore” song.
“End bad for who, bruh? I wanna see how that movie ends bad. You was never been known for Murda Ma$e ever in your career. You don’t have no arrests on your rap sheet. You haven’t even been in court at all. What are you talking about it’s going to end bad? You don’t hang out with no tough guys. Do your music, you just did the record with Puffy and Khaled. I doubt Puffy and Khaled want to be associated with the bozoness you’re trying to pull off. That’s not in their lane. Your history is your history and the more you get into this, the more people are going to find out who you really are and it’s not going to turn out to be what you think you are. Like come on man, rock your fur coats, do your sh*t, get busy. You want to come to Harlem and hang out You want to play in the basketball tournaments in the summer? Come on, it’s all love up there. We ain’t got no problems with you, bruh. I d*mn sure don’t have no problems with you, bruh. I don’t think you want this anyway. At all. You dig? And I don’t want to talk about this. You know my heart start pumping.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
This week, Jim explained his disinterest in entertaining Ma$e’s feud.
“I don’t get involved with that type, it’s not going to lead nowhere. Ma$e is a pastor, he’s a rapper, he’s a pastor. Cam is my brother. I know both of them personally. Cam is my man. I know the real stories and it’s not to get into. It’s not worth nothing. None of us is lit out here to be beefing with each other or doing no rap battles. It’s over. It was popping for a day and a half amongst the rap community because people get bored on the IG and things like that and now it’s over. I would jump into some bs like that for what? It ain’t worth nothing. … We about this Dipset movement. We about to put out some music. … Why now after we set the city on fire?” (Hot 97)
Last week, Cam’ron talked about having Ma$e blast him with the unexpected “The Oracle” diss song.
“It was out the blue, but I’m proud of him, he finally showed some guts after like 15 years. It took him 15 years, but I was really proud of him when I heard that,” Cam said in an interview. “The thing with me, I don’t really make up stuff when I’m talking about Mase. I just tell him what’s going on. I put a project out called The Program two weeks ago, and I told a story about something that happened in Harlem. So basically he was probably upset that I told the story, but I’m not going to stop telling any story, because it’s Mase or anybody else. My raps are not that much fiction, I rap about stuff that’s going on, so therefore I just told a story, came out the blue. But I’m proud of him, he showed some heart.” (Complex)
The same week, Mason Betha came forward to explain why he felt the need to drop his diss record.
“He said something that just pushed me over the edge, I’m not going to lie. When he said, ‘the bodily harm’ thing. Saying something about someone, I don’t take that serious. When you start saying you’re going to do bodily harm or you’re thinking about that, it’s my job as a man to make sure you don’t get to do that. So every other time when he was saying little stuff about me, I let it slide because you know, we grew up. But people don’t realize, we’ve been enemies way longer than we’ve been friends. So I knew him as an enemy more than as a friend. I knew him for like 8 years as a friend, I knew him for 21 years for being an enemy. So I don’t look at him as a friend.” (Hot 97)
