Mason Betha is back, ladies and gentleman. After reappearing on wax and on stage over the last two years, the former Bad Boy star returns with first solo single in almost a decade, “Why Can’t We.” Ma$e keeps it playa on this smooth R&B jam, which features a hook that nods to Jay Z, Drake and Kanye West. As he announced earlier this year, Mason is prepping a new album titled Now We Even, and hopes to land features from Diddy, Cam’ron, Beyoncé and many more. Rap Gods, make it happen.
