Mase's road since his breakthrough debut has had ups, downs, lefts, rights, you name it. Right after dropping his sophomore album, Double Up, in 1999, Mase retired from rap and became a minister. Five years, later he returned to music, dropped the gold-selling Welcome Back, linked with G Unit and then disappeared again. In 2009, he reemerged, dropping several cameo and mixtape verses, and started a public campaign to convince Diddy to release him from his contract. In 2012, Mase returned again with a verse on the remix to Wale's "Ambition" and a cameo on G.O.O.D. Music's "Higher."
