WTF! Happened: Ma$e


Mason Durnell Betha or better known as Ma$e was one of the 90's rappers you should have known about. Hailing from Harlem, New York, the rapper was signed under P Diddy's Bad Boy Records making his debut on 112's remix to "Only You". using this as his platform, Ma$e has worked with many respectable musicians in the industry including, Brian McKnight, Mariah Carey, Keith Sweat and Brandy to name a few. His debut album, Harlem World became number on the Billboard Pop and R&B LP charts selling over 250,000 copies during the first week.

After his sophomore album, Double Up he decided to retire from music and pursue his calling from God. Four years later Ma$e released his third studio effort album, Welcome Back which highlighted his Christian beliefs. His new approach to the rap game led the album becoming gold.

Recent years include photos of Betha back in the studio and maybe releasing some new content. He was featured on Kanye's West's Cruel Summer which gave him a chance to show the world that he is not yet finished with music. In 2013, he announced that his next album would be titled, Now We Even and wishes to include the likes of potential artists such as Lauryn Hill, Drake, Jay-Z, Diddy and more.
