March 9, 1999, was an important day for Harlem World: It was the day the 6-person rap group dropped their now legendary album The Movement which quickly climbed to the 11th spot on Billboard’s Top 200 chart. In one month, it went gold. It seemed like they could do anything they wanted to in the rap world after that, but they just broke up within a few months. Most of the members never regained their popularity they had with Harlem World. We’ll never know what led them to break up, but here’s what they’ve been up to since The Movement.
In 1997, Mase delivered to the world the album Harlem World. It went multi-platinum and skyrocketed the rapper to glory. He then tried to take his fame into the realm of production. He formed a group named Harlem World, and they released their only album in 1999. Though it was extremely popular, they just didn’t want to stay together.
Baby Stase: Then
She’s the real life sister of Mase and was the only lady in Harlem World. Just before The Movement dropped, she said, “With [Mase] being my sibling sometimes it can be a little difficult. But it’s fun overall because I know he’s on my back and he’s being hard on me because he wants to see me prosper. With us all, he wants to see us do just as well as he did when he first entered the music business.”
Baby Stase: Now
You can now call her Stason Betha, but Baby Stase has pretty much stayed out of music since her days as a singer in her brother’s band.
