In his latest press run, 50 Cent criticized Puff Daddy’s post-G-Unit valuation of Ma$e. According to Fif, the onetime multi-platinum Bad Boy Records star was not worth the seven figure check Diddy was seeking to clear the label and recording rights of his former Harlem protege.

Ma$e has yet to respond in interviews or even social media. Instead, Big L and Cam’ron’s former partner in Children Of The Corn simply just made music—which isn’t exactly a regular occurrence for him. “Nothing” is the latest in a broken silence/drought in music from Mason. This song, featuring Eric Bellinger, celebrates the independent woman, who asks for nada, and just does. Although the production dabbles into DJ Mustard et al’s sound du jour territory, Ma$e’s signature slow staccato flow is the same as it was on the 112 “Only You Remix,” many moons ago.

With plenty of hype around his every move, and some core fans at the top of the game right now, is Ma$e poised to stifle all of his critics (including 50 Cent) with the comeback that he’s personally delayed? Heads may forget, but 2004’s Welcome Back garnered a gold plaque, following Mase’s first hiatus, lasting over five years.
