Mase Calls Out Diddy for Exploiting His Artists


Eight years ago former Bad Boy artist Mason 'Mase' Betha announced he was finally free from his Bad Boy contract after years of trying to leave the label [click here if you missed that].

Apparently Mase left but his publishing stayed...

In a post on Instagram Mase claims he recently offered Diddy $2 million for his publishing rights, after selling them to Diddy for $20k when he was 19,  but the mogul refused.

@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

Well I'm not Mase fan, however the guy is right. I can't wait until Puff Daddy Combs gets his comeuppance. He's a low down dirty rotten scoundrel who has an unattractive face.

Damn. Just damn. Since he's had his revelations since the death of Kim, let's see if he puts his $$$ where his mouth is.

Carl Thomas was Diddy's most talented solo act and he totally underpromoted him. If anybody was robbed it was him.

Diddy the damn devil. Damn shame how he raped and pillaged all his artists but he was ruthless and smart. He did what those white music executives been doing forever. It amazes me how no one has put him in his grave yet. I guess those secret tapes of blackmail downlow gay activities are true.

Well Got Damn! Well said of the hypocrisy..Puff should've thought twice before he made that speech bc Sauce Money called him out too..

Mase better watch out. Diddy is known to get people hurt for calling him out or because he has an agenda.

It's a shame how artists get taken advantage of. Master P did the same thing to every one of his artists.

Well Mase although I get your point. Puff just sold you a bill of goods point blank period. Like the other poster said while you was all up in the videos and in the club dranking that koolaid,Puff had his hand robbing your pockets. Hope this is a lesson learned for you.

I remember when one of the groups Michael Bivens created back in the day only for them to complain about the money they were not making.

His exact words were "Did you read your contract?"

Isn't Mase almost 50? So what's the problem? Additionally, he was cool when they were cool and I'm certain he knew how other artists were being treated but turned a blind eye because he and pissy were lovers then.

Years ago, someone did a painting of puffy depicting him as the devil. It's funny how he has morphed into that painting, he's truly a black devil. The music and movie industry is a dirty business who preys on the desperate, clueless, trusting and those thirst for the "fame" and money it offers, never bothering to read the fine print to see what you have sold yourself for. Their time is coming through, one day the people will collectively wake up. The age of Pisces is over.

First Rita Ora/Colin Kaerpanick, Kelis, now Mase. JayZ been exposed, Pharrell been exposed, now Diddy is being dragged AGAIN! Keep dragging this demonic ass nigga!

Diddy paved the way, along with Russel Simmons, for black demonic, vampire hip-hop moguls!
