Mase amongst the rest of Bad Boy Artists Starting to Speak Out

50 Cent and Mase have aimed at Diddy regarding the sexual assault accusations he’s facing. Recently, the G-Unit mogul shared an old freestyle by Mase in which he directly criticizes Sean Combs.

On social media, one fan expressed, “This might be the most remarkable Ma$E verse ever!!!!”

In the freestyle, Mase delivers the following lines:

“Empty pipes when cliques get called, and go to church on Sunday, I’m the most exceptional of all. Don’t ever associate Mase with other Bad Boys who faced hardships; you know I get the crowd moving like a mosh pit, my friend.

On the level of lyrics, beneath contempt, I can never stoop so low. People are upset that I’ve reached the ‘I would never work’ stage. Since the days of Cain and Abel, I have the ability to defeat Cain. Love doesn’t steal, my friend, change your identity. I see no honor in your name, and I’m troubled by the spirit of St. James.”

“Champagne king, compare my Rolex, which is simple yet elegant. And I express gratitude that I haven’t changed. If no one ever found the culprit, why are people still alive?

Everyone is financially strapped, blaming the visionary. Some people are willing to sacrifice their principles just to attend a brunch and may end up looking foolish. I’ve experienced adversity, and people know I’m from a different neighborhood.

Forget about camaraderie; I’m focused on ensuring my mother is well. I’m not Sheek, but I’m colder than Ghost. Regardless of who makes the top five list, I’m one of the coldest. I embody the spirit of Wolf, the essence of RZA, presenting facts that you’ve never considered.

I represent the voiceless artists, acknowledging those who were left behind, from Craig Mack to G. Dep. I still remember those kids chanting, honoring every producer whose samples you’ve taken without permission.”

Sean “Diddy” Combs revealed that his feud with Mase had become a thing of the past. Two weeks after the music mogul had redistributed song publishing rights, including those of Mase and other artists formerly associated with Bad Boy Records, the tension had subsided.

Mase, a pivotal figure in Bad Boy Records’ early success, had previously publicly criticized Combs, alleging that he had offered $2 million for the publishing rights to his songs but was denied, accusing Diddy of being “extremely unfair.”

In an interview with Billboard, Combs had stated, “Everything was cool and good by then. You know, we were brothers, and brothers fought. I loved him, and that was it.”

This reconciliation had followed Combs’ decision to reassign music rights to Mase and other former Bad Boy artists or their estates, such as Notorious B.I.G. and Faith Evans, starting in 2021.

Mase had initially posted his grievances on Instagram around the time Combs received the 2020 Industry Icon award at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy gala.

In that since-deleted Instagram post, Mase had accused Combs of unfair business practices that had disadvantaged artists and had criticized him for still owning publishing rights from 24 years ago, which he had acquired for a mere $20,000.

In the Billboard interview, Combs had explained that he had initiated the transfer of rights in May or June 2021 after self-reflection, acknowledging the need for a change in how he conducted business.

During that time, he had also mentioned his negotiations with the Grammys and receiving substantial offers for the Bad Boy catalog.

Consider it Diddy’s inaugural empire. After interning at Uptown Records in the early 1990s, the Harlem native embarked on his iconic venture, Bad Boy Records, in 1993. His inaugural roster featured stars like Craig Mack and The Notorious B.I.G., ultimately selling millions of albums and revolutionizing the landscape of hip-hop and the music industry as a whole.

Among the artists who graced the ranks of Puff’s illustrious label were household names, including Biggie, Faith Evans, New Edition, Ma$e, Total, and many others.

While Bad Boy Records has enjoyed a prolonged reign as one of the most influential hip-hop labels in history, it has also weathered its share of highs and lows. Tragically, Biggie’s untimely death in 1997 abruptly halted the career of one of rap’s greatest icons at the tender age of 24.

In 1999, the infamous Club New York shooting incident involving Puff and J. Lo led to Shyne’s imprisonment for eight years.

The same year, Ma$e retired at the peak of his success to devote himself to his faith. Several other high-profile signees either failed to launch or were disappointed with their output, ultimately departing from the company. Presently, Bad Boy’s roster comprises just four artists: French Montana, Machine Gun Kelly, Diddy himself, and his girlfriend Cassie.

Earlier this month, the hip-hop mogul revealed that he had secured a label partnership deal with Epic Records, transferring Bad Boy from under the Interscope umbrella to the Sony camp.

This move comes as Diddy prepares to release two new albums, including a solo LP and No Way Out 2, a sequel to Puff Daddy and the Family’s beloved 1997 project. As Diddy embarks on yet another chapter in Bad Boy’s extensive history, over 30 artists who have departed from the label over the years.
