Ma$e has a huge list of albums, hit singles, and Billboard charts, which has made him a hit-maker in the music world. Now he is about to become the first artist to be signed to both Bad Boy and Death Row, two popular Hip Hop labels that had a bitter, and eventually fatal, feud in the 1990s.
The Harlem rapper took to Instagram to announce that he is about to sign a contract with Death Row Records, which Snoop Dogg purchased earlier this year for an undisclosed fee. In the Instagram video, the rapper was seen driving through Los Angeles while announcing.
“I’m on Crenshaw — just passed Pico, just passed Slauson — and I’m out here to meet with Snoop so I can do another joint venture with Death Row Records.
I’ll be officially the first one signed to Bad Boy and Death Row. And we gon’ get the 2Pac thing rekindled. Let’s see where we go with that.”
Though a deal hasn’t been officially confirmed, Ma$e’s joining would be historic for Death Row and Bad Boy, given their bitter rivalry in the mid-1990s, which led to the deaths of 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G.
Harlem World, Double Up, and Welcome Back are the three albums Ma$e recorded on the label before leaving in 2012. In the past, he had also teased about joining Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music, Drake’s OVO Sound, and Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more updates.
