148

Mase was one of the most commercially successful MCs in the late 90s and was signed to P. Diddy’s record label, Bad Boy. At the Just Concluded Grammy Awards, P. Diddy had went on what some called “rampage” criticizing record label or music industry bosses that are termed, “White owned” to start giving the so called “Black” artists what it is rightfully due to them in terms of their musical works ownership. And this brought out the rage on Mase who accuses P. Diddy of taking a hypocritical stands on doing right when it comes to music publishing rights.

And Mase also quoting Meek Mills recent comment about white record labels taking advantage of your black musicians as a way of calling them to his own label. Mase lashes out at the black record label owners like Puff Daddy and recently, Meek Mill, Roc Nation and others who are heavily taking advantage of their race to rip off their own black young artists.

Take a look at the Mase fury at P. Diddy and other black owned record label bosses. And his encounter with the Bad Boy record label boss regarding buying back the publishing right of his work.

@diddy I heard your #Grammy speech about how u are now for the artist and about how the artist must take back control. So I will be the first to take that initiative. Also, before we ask of other ethnicities to do us right we should do us as black people better. Especially the creators. I heard u loud and clear when u said that u are now for the artist and to that my response is if u want to see change you can make a change today by starting with yourself. Your past business practices knowingly has continued purposely starved your artist and been extremely unfair to the very same artist that helped u obtain that Icon Award on the iconic Badboy label. For example, u still got my publishing from 24 years ago in which u gave me $20k. Which makes me never want to work w/ u as any artist wouldn’t after u know someone is robbing you & tarnishing your name when u don’t want to comply w/ his horrendous business model. However, people would always ask what’s up w/ Mase? So I would be forced to still perform to not look crazy when I was getting peanuts and the robbery would continue. So many great moments and people lives in music were lost. But again, I rode with u in the face of death without flinching & u still wouldn’t do right. I never said anything because I wanted to wait until I was financially great so I can ensured that I was addressing this from a pure place and not out of spite. To add insult, u keep screaming black excellence and love but I know love isn’t free. So I offered u 2m in cash just a few days ago to sell me back my publishing(as his biggest artist alive) that always show u respect for u giving me an opportunity at 19 yrs old. Your response was if I can match what the EUROPEAN GUY OFFER him that would be the only way I can get it back. Or else I can wait until I’m 50 years old and it will revert back to me from when I was 19 years old. You bought it for about 20k & I offered you 2m in cash. This is not black excellence at all. When our own race is enslaving us. If it’s about us owning, it can’t be about us owning each other. No More Hiding Behind “Love”. U CHANGED? GIVE THE ARTIST BACK THEIR $$$. So they can take care of their families
