Miami Rapper/Producer Mase Breaks Out With Brand New Single ‘Like This’

Mase

Miami rapper/producer Mase just released his new single Like This, which marks a new chapter in his music career. This ace music producer and head honcho of DMS Entertainment reluctantly started his stint as a recording artist via the single entitled We Miss You, a tribute song to his late father. Taking cue from the overwhelming responses he got from his growing number of fans, Mase has finally stepped-up to show the side of him that’s truly passionate about Hip-Hop music. Yes, Mase is a true-blue Hip-Hop fan and has a fun, easy going vibe about him. Thus, he breaks out of his shell and comes up with a Hip-Hop/R&B ditty entitled Like This.

Mase has taken the Hip-Hop party route with Like This and is taking his music to the party and club scenes this time around. Heavily influenced by Hip-Hop great Snoop Dogg, Mase is a master craftsman of grooves and beats. Like This is just the perfect soundtrack for b-boys breaking on the dance floor or Hip-Hop honeys chilling-out at the coolest clubs in town. But whether one is partying out or just blasting sounds from the bedroom stereo, Like This is undeniably mind-blowing and infectious. No wonder, Like This was easily picked-up by radio stations all across the nation and is fast-gaining airplay.

This is just the beginning of more Hip-Hop music ventures for Mase as a recording artist; a full album is definitely in the works. As head of DMS Entertainment, Mase is continuously developing his stable of talents and will soon launch a solo recording project for R&B sensation Sonja.

Like This is now available for digital download via iTunes and other online music portals.

Eve Talks Stripper Life & How Mase Saved Her

Posted: Thursday – June 17, 2010

Female raptress Eve tells about her encounter with former Bad Boy rapper Mase who encouraged her to stop stripping and start rapping.

According to Mahogany Cafe, Eve stopped attending class and barely graduated high school. Once her mother remarried, she moved to New York and started working as a dancer in a Bronx strip club where she initially met Mase. He encouraged her to stop dancing and start rapping on a professional level.

Eve spoke to VH1 on an episode of Behind The Music about her chat with Mase in the 90’s. “He came into the club and looked at me and literally was like, ‘What’s your name?’ And I gave him every stripper name under the sun! I was like, ‘I’m Ginger, I’m Sassy!’ He was like, ‘Why don’t you go get dressed, let’s go just talk.’ And we did, we talked throughout the night. He was like, ‘You’re really talented. What are you doing? You know you’re not supposed to be here. You know it.’ It was a confirmation for me that all these thoughts, all this sadness. All these times that I wake up in the morning, I’m like, ‘Why do I feel like this?’ And I know I’m not supposed to be there. It just woke me up,” Eve states, realizing that she might have never explored her lyrical talents any further if it weren’t for former Bad Boy recording artist.

Eventfully, Eve was able to attain a meeting which turned into an audition with Dr. Dre and she signed a one-year deal with Dre’s new label Aftermath. With limited publicity and guidance, Eve’s one year contract had ended before she knew it and along with the new label she was lost. Unfortunately she didn’t have the opportunity to began crafting an album, but she was able to link up with DMX which was a great foot forward for her new career as Ruff Ryder’s first lady, and Eve recorded her first album, Ryde or Die, Vol. 1, via Interscope Records.

Although Eve just completed her third album with Interscope, they have decided to end their relationship with her — she was recently dropped from the label.

In a recent interview with VIBE, she explains what happened and how she was dropped. “Interscope was stupid because they didn’t drop me at first, they just shelfed me, and dropped the ball. After Tambourine, they straight up were like, ‘Umm, yeah, nah, we’re not putting out the record.’ After that I was like, ‘Y’all gotta let me go. I’ve been here 11 years and you’re fronting on me?’ It got to that point… They promised me the machine. The machine is basically the roll out. It’s ‘Yo, when ‘Flirt’ comes out, we’ll give you this, we’ll give you that. And that’s what made me mad. It’d be different if we didn’t have a meeting where people promised me sh*t. If they were just like, ‘Oh we’re going to put the album out and see what happens,’ that would be one thing… But they were like, ‘No, we’re making sure this happens, it’s coming out on this date.’ It was concrete. But it’s all good, everything happens how it’s supposed to, when it’s supposed to.”

Eve’s album, Here I Am, which featured the hit single Tambourine, was scheduled to come out in 2007, but was shelved by her then-label home Interscope. The album will reportedly feature a song with Akon and she has added Kelly Rowland to her wish list of people to work with on the project.

Mase's Return Inspired By Michael Jackson's Death

Posted: Monday – July 6, 2009

The death of Michael Jackson has inspired a return to rap by rapper-turned-preacher Mase.

“I’m excited. Mike [Jackson] passed away. It lit a fire under me and made me want to go in the studio and do something,” Mase told DJ Self of New York’s Power 105 FM after the legendary pop singer died.

Still, Mase said that he knows nothing of about contemporary rappers and needed help finding out Hip-Hop’s top talents.

“I asked my lil’ nephew and said, ‘Who is the hottest thing out there?’ He said ‘Drake, Drake.’ I said I gotta see what record he got and I said I’m going to jump on a joint.”

He said he eventually got the re-make to DJ Self to break the record.

“You know I stay with a couple [rhymes] under my sleeves. I just need a place to play them,” Mase said.

“I just love both of them. I know we had a lot of bad altercations and stuff like that. I got love for the family, man,” the Harlem-bred artist said. “At the end of the day, my kids are supposed to know their kids. Their kids are supposed to know mine.

Jim Jones called into the station and apologized to Mase for their past exchanges which were very public.

“I just wanted to tell you I tip my hat to you. I apologize to you for anything I ever done when I was younger,” Jim Jones said in a brief conversation with Mase. “I’m good like a fresh pair of [Air force] 1′s,” Mase concluded.
