Ma$e made his way to MTV’s RapFix Live on Wednesday afternoon. The Harlem rapper caught up with host Sway to reflect on his past, the short retirement, and what’s next in career. One piece of major news Ma$e revealed was that after 16 years, he’s officially off Bad Boy Records. The move only happened a few days ago, where Diddy granted him the wish he’s been longing for a number of years. As for a new home? The former pastor feels aligning with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music or Drake would be best.
“I’ve been in that contract for 16 years. Yeah, the other day he let me out of it, so big shout-outs to Diddy, I guess he woke up feeling good and he wanted to do something good.
At this point, I don’t really want to be under nobody from the aspect of being tied in a long, long contract. It’s kinda like breaking up; you don’t want to jump into a new relationship. I’ma have to go somewhere. I would entertain that. I love Kanye, I love what he does musically, I love his ability to push the envelope. I like to be around people that’s not afraid to be different.”
