Did Mase tell on himself?
Mase dropped a lot of lines straight on to Cam’ron’s head in his new diss track “The Oracle,” but fans are more concerned with one of the few parts of the song that don’t directly concern Killa Cam.
Mase said “Every time you talk of me you sound like one time, I f-ck the King of Rap b-tch when I was unsign” leading listeners to suspect he was talking about Faith Evans.
Given that Mase was signed to Bad Boy in 1996, the fact that he’s a New Yorker and who was hot before his deal, he almost definitely has to be talking about Biggie or Nas with the reference to the King of Rap. Moving in Bad Boy circles meant that he would be familiar with Evans, even if it wasn’t biblically so.
The news is particularly interesting, given Evans’ feud with Lil Kim over the latter’s fairly open affair with her husband, the Notorious B.I.G. Kim and Evans appeared to get on good terms following the rapper’s murder, but the Biggie biopic Notorious kickstarted their beef all over again.
The movie featured a highly unfavorable portrayal of Lil Kim and was not-so-subtly backed by Evans. It couldn’t have been helped when celebrity medium Tyler Shatley told Lil Kim Biggie’s ghost was calling her a soulmate.
“It’s like Biggie came through as, like, a former lover, no different than any former lover would,” he told Entertainment Tonight. He continued:
“But he came through very strongly and acknowledging that he wanted her to know that they were soulmates and how much he loved her. And he acknowledged their relationship and how it kind of…how their last interaction was. He discussed some of the dynamics behind that and gave her a lot of closure and healing because, she didn’t obviously, because of the nature of his passing.”
As for the actual target of the diss track? He told The Breakfast Club that he doesn’t understand where all the vitriol is coming from. He also accused Mase of being somewhat of a charlatan, someone who became a reverend because he saw money in it.
“I’ve never dissed Mase in my life,” said Cam’Ron, breaking down his rationale:
“I don’t mess with Mase no more, cause me personally I just go by a different standard than people. Once you start playin’ with God and start taking people’s money, and say rap is the devil then come back and rap cause you ain’t got no money, I just can’t pump with you. I’m not sayin’ I’m the most religious guy in the world, but I don’t play with you when you play with God. There was a time when he was like ‘yo, you know Deacons is gettin’ that money.’ I was like it’s over. I can’t really mess with you.”
He also disputed the line saying that he “f-cked his sister” by saying unequivocally that he has no sister. He told the hosts that anything he would say about Mase on the record would be true.
“I never dissed Mase. I’m telling you stories about real life situations. I never made up ‘f-cked my sister,’ the imaginary sister that I don’t have. I don’t have a sister. I don’t really do fiction when it comes to Mase,” he said.
