Mase took to Instagram on Monday to announce his return with a new single called “Oracle 2: The Legend of Mason Betha.”
The track appears to double as a diss track aimed at Diddy, who Mase calls out for repping New York despite hailing from the Westchester County suburb of Mt. Vernon. The Harlem native also sends shots at the Bad Boy Records CEO for exploiting the Notorious B.I.G.’s death.
“Yeah, I’m just a Harlem n***a reppin’ down a Vegas strip with my own Suge/You from Mt. Vernon, n***a, go & rep your own hood,” Mase raps. “I’m not hating on your Billi worth/Right now, I’m only saying what you really work/You ain’t no architect/You just a n***a who know how to market death.”
Mase’s new track follows his 2017 Cam’ron diss track, “The Oracle.” In 1999, Mase famously retired from hip-hop to pursue a career as a pastor. He then became an ordained minister at Clark Atlanta University. After a five-year hiatus, Mase returned to the rap game with his 2004 comeback album, Welcome Back.
