The above video shows Mase sharing a laugh with Cam’ron over the phone. “Killa, what’s good?” he asks. Cam can be heard chuckling along with him, asking, “What up, n***a?”
The former Bad Boy Records artist asks “where’s Mr. Petty” with at a cackle before the clip fades to black, seemingly referencing Cam’s Mase diss track “Dinner Time,” in which the Dipset member spits, “You done opened up a door/I’m petty, ready for war.”
On IG, Mase’s sister Stason captioned the clip, “Ok now @rsvpmase and @mr_camron I DEFINITELY DID NOT SEE THIS COMING but I’m here for it!!!! Smh y’all gotta stop with this nonsense or I’m swinging on both of y’all!!! #The2KingsOfPetty #WhenMenGrowUp.”
The rappers were both part of the group Children of the Corn, which disbanded in the mid 1990s, leading to success in their individual careers. As noted by the Fader, their differences started when Mase wanted Cam’ron to pay him $40,000 to appear in the 1998 music video for “Horse & Carriage,” the single off his debut album Confessions of Fire, which he was already featured on. Cam didn’t meet his request, and used a Mase body double instead.
The following year, Mase left the music industry to become a pastor. The reason for his departure was revisited around the same time that the aforementioned “Dinner Time” was released. Cam claimed Mase walked away to avoid the street life, but Mase said the decision was ultimately rooted in his desire to help the inner-city youth.
After exchanging barbs over the course of a few years, Cam’ron told XXL in a 2006 interview that he would “never speak to Mase again.”
Just over a decade later, their feud was revitalized with Cam’ron questioning why Mase became a pastor. That same year, it appeared they were able to work things out in their own unique way over social media, as seen in this 2017 post:
While on Million Dollaz Worth of Game, Mase reflected on the feud with Cam’ron, claiming money ruined their relationship.
“When I got the money it just changed everything, but at first my problem with I think Cam was just that they thought I had money I didn’t have,” he said. “Like I just told you I was flexing crazy, so n***as was like, ‘Yo, Murda ain’t sharing the bag.’ I never got the bag. Now that we looking back you can see he never got that bag, and then by the time I got the bag we was enemies already. So I didn’t get to break ’em off.”
“That’s one of the relationships I regret,” Mase added. “I think I got two that I regret, and going at Killa, I wanted to do that but that was like my n***a, you know what I’m saying? So that really hurt me.”
