Favorite song: “Jealous Guys” f/ 112

Wale: “That’s the first album I probably knew front-to-back. That was around the time when I first started going to a detention center school, so my bus ride to school was like 45 minutes and I would bump that every day. I feel like to this day nobody has ever come in the game as cool as Ma$e did. Puffy did an amazing job with Mase. He didn’t stay around long enough to become over or underrated, it’s just Ma$e now. But he was on the cusp. He had that sophomore slump, but people were ready to see what he was going to do after that.”
