HELL UP IN HARLEM! Ma$e Just Got A G.O.O.D. Offer

Fresh off his ‘Summerjam’ performance, it is rumored that rapper Ma$e is in the process of joining Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music, according to my industry source. Ma$e even took to his official Twitter account @SaintMason and tweeted, “Wow… I just got a G.O.O.D. offer!!!”

About a month ago, I heard from a reliable source that Ma$e was in the process of finalizing his joint venture deal with Diddy’s Bad Boy and Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group but I am unsure if that situation ever went through but I do know that this Past Sunday (June 3), Ma$e made a surprise performance at New York’s Hot 97 ‘Summerjam’ concert. He was apart of French Montana and Rick Ross’ set. He was looking very Harlem too, wearing a royal NYC varsity jacket with the matching hat, True Religion denim shorts and Nike Air Max Griffey Fury Fuse.

My thing is this, I respect Ma$e as a rapper and think he was great back in his days. In 2012, what does Ma$e has to offer to us high school/college students? We’re the ones who support the artists the most.

Picture Me Dope: Harlem’s Rap Group ‘Children Of The Corn’

Harlem’s legendary rap crew Children of the Corn was formed in the early 90’s by neighborhood friends Mase, Cam’ron and Big L. Cam’ron’s cousin Bloodshed and friend McGruff were also a part of the group. Children of the corn is a shorter name for Children of the Corner. The group disbanded in the late 90’s after the death of Bloodshed and Big L. Bloodshed was killed in a car crashed on the George Washington Bridge back in 1997 and Big L was murdered. After the group disbanded, they all went to pursue their solo careers. Mase signed with Bad Boy, Cam’ron signed with Epic and McGruff signed with Uptown. These guys were true Harlem hustla’s. They used to make money by rapping for local DJ’s and selling their tape out the trunk of their cars. Big L and Bloodshed are truly missed! Cam’ron, Mase & McGruff are nowhere to be found.

Juelz Santana Speaks On Dipset’s Relationship With Mase, “I Don’t Got No Personal Feelings Towards Him.”

Please check the four side banner ads on the right and take advantage of the exclusive offers.

In an exclusive interview with Vlad TV, Harlem rapper Juelz Santana spoke about Dipset’s relationship with Mase. Ju Ju said that he has no issues with Mase and any beef with him was “inherited” because of his ties with Dipset.

For me that was something that was inherited. That was a problem that was kinda like inherited…I never really said nothing about Mase because it was something that I never knew too much about. That’s like somebody new getting with Jim or Cam trying to talk about our situation as Diplomats. For one, they shouldn’t allow them to, at the end of the day. And for two, you don’t really know too much about that situation.”-Juelz Santana

“I don’t got no personal feelings towards Mase…I can only move in the direction that’s right. If it’s something I don’t know about or something, if I’m with my brothers, just like nobody is gonna let nothing happen to me and vice versa,” said Santana. “People know me, I’m not there to get into it or entertain or start talking about something that don’t concern me.”-Juelz Santana

Rappers That Are Most Likely Not To Make A Comeback

Some rappers are very blessed to have a successful music career, and others aren’t. In our Hip-Hop era today, rappers are lucky if they can stay relevant for five consecutive years and release a minimum of three albums. Some rappers got on, was popping for the moment, then they disappeared and we never heard from them again. Other rappers are just “one hit wonders,” ask Mims.  They had a hit record, and when record died down, they’re career did as well. I came up with a list of five rappers that are most likely not to make a comeback. The five rappers that I chose, was hot for the moment or are “one hit wonders.”

1.  Mase

Mase is best known for being Puff Daddy’s sidekick back in the late 90’s.  Mase was first introduced to the music industry back in 1996, when he was featured on 112’s song “Only You.” The success of the song, gained  Mase a worldwide fanbase, and he soon became one of the hottest rappers of the 90’s. A few months later, still without releasing an album, Mase was featured on Puffy Daddy’s song “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down” and Biggies number one hit record “Mo Money, Mo Problem.” In 1997, Mase released his debut album Harlem World, which went 4x platinum. The album  singles “Feel So Good” and “Look At Me” peaked number one on the Billboard rap charts.  In 1999 Mase released his second album  Double Up. It did not live up to the expectations and was a major failure compared to his first album. The album only went gold (500,000 copies). That same year, Mase announced his retirement from rap on Hot 97 NYC with DJ Funk Master Flex to find GOD. Mase founded GOD then made his return back  to Hip-Hop in 2004 with his album Welcome Back, which went gold. In 2005, Mase did some recording with 50 Cent and G-unit and was rumored to be signed to G-Unit and SRC Records but the deals were never finalized because Puff didn’t want to sell Mase contract for under $2 million. Mase then disappeared from rap again and went back to GOD. In June of 2009, Mase ended his feuded with childhood friends Jim Jones and Cam’ron. In July 0f 2009, Mase released a new track “Get It” Ft. Cam’ron and Vado, and did a remix to Drake’s “Best I Ever Had.”  Mase was released from his contract with Puff Daddy and Bad Boy records.  As far as his music career, I don’t know where he stands.

2. Chingy

In 2003, his debut single “Right Thurr” put him on the map and gained success worldwide, which lead to his debut album Jackpot selling over two million copies. In 2004, Chingy left Ludacris and DTP Records because of money issues. Since leaving Luda and DTP, Chingy really haven’t been able to make a hit record. Chingy’s 2004 album Powerballin, 2006 album Hood Star, and 2007 Hate It Or Love  were all failures and didn’t sell more than a few hundreds thousands copies. It was rumored that Chingy is working  on his fifth album Success & Failures, but after doing some research there is no release date or tracklisting. The last time I heard something about  Chingy, he was out in L.A. and down in ATL messing with gay men and a trannies.
