How Will Ma$e Be Remembered?

Ma$e is Bad Boy's finest!

Published November 3, 2016

  1. Bad Boy

    Ma$e is mostly known for being signed to arguably one of the best '90s hip-hop labels, Bad Boy Records. By signing with P. Diddy, he joined the likes of The Notorious B.I.G and Craig Mack, to name a few.  

  2. Feels So Good

    In 1997, Ma$e delivered his first solo LP, Harlem World. His single "Feels So Good" peaked at No. 1 on the Rap Billboard Charts! 

  3. A1 Since Day 1

    Before his music success, Ma$e attended Manhattan Center High School in New York. There, he met and became friends with future fellow rap artist Cam'ron. They even started a group called Children of the Corn. The brief group was managed by fellow student turned hip-hop mogul Damon Dash.

  4. From Rapper To Minister? No Really, You Remember Right?

    Ma$e is certainly not the first rapper to turn into a minister. We all know of Rev Run, but Ma$e also took a break from the rap game to preach. In 1999, heannounced that he was retiring from rap music and needed to serve God.  

  5. Welcome Back, Welcome Back!

    Ma$e's run as a minister ended about five years later in 2004. He was eager to return back to music and dropped a song called "Welcome Back" that summer.  

    Betha's back! #HarlemWorld

  6. The Time He Told Us To Breathe, Stretch, Shake and Let It Go

    During his comeback, he also released a song titled "Breath, Stretch, Shake." No, it's not a workout song. It's a fun song that makes everyone dance! This song, along with "Welcome Back," played numerous times on hip-hop radio stations, especially in New York. 

  7. Bad Boy Reunion? Yes!

    In the beginning of 2016, P. Diddy announced there would be a Bad Boy Reunion tour. Ma$e definitely made the cut of Bad Boy artists that would be traveling on the tour. It started in August in Columbus, Ohio, and ended in October in Oakland, California. 

  8. Rocking the Stage as Bad Boys Do

    Ma$e is known to rock the stage just like his other Bad Boy family members. He will be rocking the stage for everyone to see at the 2016 Soul Train Awards — and we can't wait!
