With Mase‘s rap comeback appearing to be highly unlikely, Dipset’s Jim Jones recently spoke to SOHH about the possibility of reuniting with his former rap rival for a game of basketball.
Admitting that he hasn’t seen Mase in some time, Jones said there is no bad blood between them.
“I haven’t seen Betha or any sh*t like that,” Jones told SOHH referring 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-Mase record, “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 a fan to 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”)
In summer 2009, Mase and Cam’ron made a truce and dropped their “Get It” collaboration.
“@djself AY SELF PLAY THAT JOINT ONCE MORE THEY’RE BLOWING UP MY PHONE RIGHT NOW LOL! CAM’ MAN WHAT DID I TELL YOU. NYC WE BACK ONCE MORE! MAN IT FEELS GOOD TO BE BACK. I APPRECIATE THE LOVE AND SUPPORT! CAM’ LET’S “GET IT” ! PEOPLE TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT ME AND CAM’S NEW JOINT “GET IT”! HOLLA AT ME EVERYONE! @djself MAN I APPRECIATE THE SPINS SELF!

In 2009, Jim Jones and Mase officially settled their past issues during a live radio interview.
“What’s good Beth, what’s poppin’,” Jones asked in a phone interview towards Mase. “How you feeling? Hey man, that’s what’s up, I just wanted to tell you I tip my hat to you. I apologize for everything I did when I was younger. You can get my number from Self and sh*t like that. Pardon my French. Pardon, pardon me it’s monumental that’s why I’ma get off it. You already know Betha, it’s nothing but love. Self’s got my number, I’m jumping off the line. I’ll holla, Jones.” (Power 105.1)
