Mase Lashes Out At Diddy, Says He Refuses To Give Him Back His Publishing & Claims Diddy ‘Tarnished’ His Name ‘With His Horrendous Business Model’

We thought all was well between Mase and Diddy

Apparently not.

Mase took to Instagram to call out Diddy in a lengthy Instagram post Friday (Jan. 31).

He shared a tweet from Meek Mill that said that many young black artists are slaves when it comes to their recording contracts. Mase also referenced Diddy’s Grammy Awards speech where Diddy said artists have to be the ones in control.

Mase, Diddy

Mase spoke on his past as an artist on Diddy’s Bad Boy label and wrote,

“@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.”

He went on to allege Diddy has his publishing from nearly 25 years ago and said artists won’t want to work with Diddy once they find out the alleged truth.

“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.”

He continued and claimed he performed for “peanuts”.

“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.”

He added that despite his alleged experience, he remained loyal to Diddy, only for Diddy to allegedly betray him again.

“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.”

He ended with,

“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”

Interestingly enough, fans seem to side with Mase on this one, and Mase even started trending on Twitter.
