Jadakiss believes that they're past the age when airing out their private business is acceptable.
"I think Mase gotta good enough relationship where he can go talk to Diddy," Mase said at the interview's 30-second mark.
In November 2005, Jadakiss and The Lox appeared on Hot 97 with Angie Martinez. During the interview, The Lox—mainly Jadakiss and Styles P—went on the offensive against Diddy. They claimed that they had to give Diddy a substantial amount of their publishing because of the release they signed with Bad Boy. Several people called in to the radio station to talk about the contracts including Jermaine Dupri and former Bad Boy employees. Even Diddy called in. The conversation with Diddy resulted in a heated exchange during which Jadakiss threatened to throw a refrigerator at Diddy.
"The way we did it on the radio with Angie Ma was different. We was young kids. We ain't understand business the way we do now being business owners and fathers and grown men about it," Jadakiss continued. "Mase had a better relationship with Diddy then we actually had. He can go talk to him."
Throughout The Lox's argument with Diddy in 2005, Puff urged them to come to his office so things could get squared away. Styles P and Jada responded by claiming that the security at Bad Boy wouldn't let them get in the building. With this in mind, Jada does admit to not knowing how conversations with Mase and Puff are going at the moment.
"In [Mase] defense, I don't know how it's going down. He doing what he gotta do. I just know I would handle it different at this point in life," Jada said. "When we did the whole 'Let The Lox Go' campaign we was teenagers or in our early 20s. Everybody's grown men now... But I don't know what happened he might have tried [to talk to Diddy] and it ain't work."
Following Puff's speech at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party, Mase took to Instagram where he chastised the Bad Boy founder for holding his publishing hostage.
"You bought it for about 20k & I offered you 2m in cash. This is not black excellence at all," Mase said in an Instagram post about his publishing. "When our own race is enslaving us. If it’s about us owning, it can’t be about us owning each other. No More Hiding Behind 'Love'. U CHANGED? GIVE THE ARTIST BACK THEIR $$$. So they can take care of their families."
