Mase Net Worth
Mase net worth: Mase is an American rapper, songwriter, TV personality and inspirational speaker who has a net worth of $8 million. Mase, also known as Dr. Mason Durelle Betha, got his start in the world of rap music thanks to Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs and his music imprint, Bad Boy Records. Mase recorded several highly-regarded albums that were produced and distributed by Bad Boy Records. In 1999, he left the industry to become a religious preacher and inspirational speaker. Mase returned to the music world in 2004 and recorded an album, entitled "Welcome Back". As was the case with his earlier album, "Welcome Back" was produced and distributed by Bad Boy Records. Mase quit the music industry for a second time when he could not get released from his contract with Sean Combs. He returned again in 2009 and recorded a third album, "I Do the Impossible". Mase is currently a free agent in the music industry who has sought a new performance contract with different record labels.
Mase's debut studio album Harlem World was released in 1997. It reached #1 on the Billboard 200 and US R&B charts as well as in Canada. His album Double Up was released in 1999 and reached #2 on the US R&B chart. His 2004 album Welcome Back reached #3 on the US R&B chart and #4 on the Billboard 200 chart. His popular singles include "Feel So Good" (featuring Kelly Price), "What You Want" (featuring Total), "Lookin' at Me" (featuring Puff Daddy), "Get Ready" (featuring Blackstreet), "Welcome Back", and "Breathe, Stretch, Shake" (featuring P. Diddy).
Feud With Diddy: In January 2020, Mase posted a message on Instagram that was extremely critical of his former mentor, Diddy. The critical message came on the heels of a speech Diddy gave at a Grammy pre-party in which the tycoon called out the music industry for its history of taking advantage of young artists of color and general lack of diversity. Mase took issue with Diddy' speech, claiming in his own Instagram post that Diddy greatly took advantage of him back in the 1990s. Mase claimed that Diddy paid him just $20,000 for his publishing rights, an extremely lucrative source of income for artists. Mase further claimed to have recently offered Diddy $2 million to buy back his publishing, but was told he had to compete with another offer. Mase's scathing post further stated:
"This is not black excellence at all. When our 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."
