Ma$e

Rapper Known for his shiny suit, signature drawl and killer collabos with Diddy, Ma$e (born Mason Durell Betha) was one of the hottest hip hop voices in the late '90s. He shook up the music industry with his debut LP, Harlem World, and the multi-platinum-selling album skyrocketed the rapper into super-stardom, spawning hits like "Lookin' at Me," "Feel So Good" and "What You Want." The Bad Boy rapper announced his departure from the music world to pursue ministry after his sophomore album but came back five years later with his third LP, Welcome Back. Since then his music career has been on-again off-again, with Ma$e having affiliations with everyone from 50 Cent and G-Unit to Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music. After 16 years being signed to Bad Boy Records, Diddy finally released the Harlem rapper from his contract.
