Put this in the "came out of nowhere" files. [artist id="400206"]Cam'ron[/artist] and [artist id="1169"]Mase[/artist] have not only reunited after years of bickering, but they're putting out a record together. What? Early Saturday morning Miss Info blogged that Killa Cam had sent her a new song called "Get It." The record features newcomer B. Rossi, as well as fellow Harlem knight Mase, who hasn't seen eye to eye with Cam in years.
The two were thick as thieves in the 1990s, first as neighborhood friends and later as part of the group Children of the Corn with [artist id="508549"]Big L.[/artist] Mase, in fact, introduced Cam to [artist id="13432"]Notorious B.I.G.[/artist], which led to Killa's first record deal. But the two had a falling-out more than a decade ago when Mase refused to appear in the video for Cam's "Horse and Carriage," a song the rapper-turned-pastor appeared on. They eventually squashed their differences, but when Mase appeared on Hot 97 to promote his return to rap with 2004's Welcome Back, Cam, [artist id="1796387"]Jim Jones[/artist] and Mase had a very ugly on-air spat. That was the last we'd heard about the Up Top connection.
As of late, though, Mase had been hinting about another comeback, putting out freestyles over songs like [artist id="1838768"]Trey Songz[/artist]'s "I Need a Girl" and [artist id="2545682"]Drake[/artist]'s "Best I Ever Had." Then he called up New York radio station Power 105.1 last week and shouted out the Diplomats.
"I love both of them," Mase told DJ Self about his relationship with Cam and Jones. "I know we had a lot of bad altercations and stuff like that. I just got love for the family. At the end of the day, my kids are supposed to know their kids. Their kids are supposed to know mine."
Jim Jones called in during Mase's interview to say, "I just wanted to tell you, I tip my hat to you. I apologize for anything I did when I was younger."
A Mase/ Jim Jones record may have been expected, but the Cam'ron reunion came without warning.
"The black Lyor, chicks wanna sip from any glass I pour," Mase raps on "Get It." "Louis dress shirt, Gucci expert/ My net worth make chicks wanna network."
"Mase, you come back if you get 50 percent,'" he adds at the end of his verse. "Nah, I need Diddy's percent."
Killa comes in with swagger: "I blow weed smoke, different guns we tote/ My goddamn chain like a ski slope, please, folks/ Harlem World, you know the boy murder home/ Lennox Ave, you know we the murder zone."
Miss Info gave a little insight into the reunion, writing that the two actually mended their fence a while ago and played basketball together last summer.
