Ma$e Plans Major Artist Collaborations for 'Now We Even'
Ma$e appeared to have everything a successful rapper could ever want in the late 1990s, but by the 2000s, his career halted, with only 2004'sWelcome Back and the occasional collaboration keeping him relevant. Last year brought a new single "Why Can't We" and an announcement about a new album, and now the rapper revealed his plans at the recent Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash concert in Atlanta.
Specifically, listeners should expect a few carefully selected but nonetheless high profile collaborations, including from Kanye West, Rick Ross, and Diddy. In fact, recent single "Billboard" features Ross and West. His skills and guest stars, the rapper believes, will result in a major impact:"I got something really serious coming. We just shooting a video in L.A. and in the desert so it's gon' be really sexy."
Previously, he expressed interest in working with Drake, Lauryn Hill, and 2 Chainz, so we'll see if they make appearances, as well.
But it's not just collaborations that the rapper's keen on. He admitted during an interview at the event that Now We Even is the proper follow up to 1997's Harlem World. About this, he explained: "This would be what I woulda' put out after 'Harlem World,' so it's going to be really special."
While Now We Even is scheduled to drop later this year, Ma$e's comeback has been somewhat slow, although he didn't disappear entirely. Along with attention for "Billboard" and "Why Can't We," he appeared on G.O.O.D. Music's Cruel Summer soundtrack album.
