Former Bad Boy records artist, Mase, is ready to link with Snoop Dogg and Death Row records for new venture while getting ”the Tupac thing rekindled.”
Months after Snoop Dogg stated Bad Boy records and Death Row records would join forces, it appears Mase fits into the equation.
“I’m going to work out. I’m doing tour days. I’ma get my body right. And I’m on Crenshaw. Just passed PICO. Just passed Slauson. And I’m out here to meet with Snoop, so I can do another joint venture with Death Row Records. So I’ll be officially the first one signed to Bad Boy and Death Row,” Mase said on Instagram as he tagged Snoop Dogg.
Although Mase is no longer signed to Bad Boy records, Snoop Dogg working with the Harlem rapper shouldn’t come as a surprise. “We can show growth and progression that we can move forward. We can take this Bad Boy x Death Row what it used to be, and make it a collaboration on peace and love. ’Cause that’s who I am. I’m Suge and Puffy,” said Snoop on Drink Champs back in April.
With that being said, Snoop Dogg has a great relationship with Diddy, which also makes the new venture a bit odd considering Snoop will work with Mase who continues to call out Diddy publicly.
“I felt like I did more than I got credit for, more than what I got paid for,” Ma$e said of his tenure at Bad Boy Records when hw appeared on Million Dollaz Worth of Game back in July. “I never got paid what I was worth, and I never got the respect I was worth. So, this disdain that I got for Puff is more like you trying to keep me here, ni**a [motions with hand to indicate him being on a lower level].”
Closing out his Instagram video, Mase also mentioned Tupac. ”And we gon’ get the Tupac thing rekindled. Let’s see where we go with that.”
Part of Snoop’s media run after taking over Death Row records, the Dogg father spoke about Tupac’s masters that are no longer in the possession of DR.
“2Pac’s masters came back to him last year,” he explained to Tidal. “But I got a great relationship with his estate, and I’m pretty sure we’re going to be able to work something out … to continue some Death Row 2Pac business now that Snoop Dogg is in control of Death Row. Same with Dr. Dre and The Chronic. I got The Chronic album.”
