Man We Got Beef Between MASE & Cam and The Dips

I have to say CLUBJAY Z is off the hook, if your not a member like us here at ROCABLOG you need to check ya self and join, GOOD LOOKIN...

In an interview with Hot 97's Morning Show staff, Mase, Jim Jones
and Cam'ron engaged in a heated debate, with the two Dip Set members
questioning Mase's authenticity.

On air, Mase recalled the cause of his split with Cam'ron, with whom
he once rapped with. The incident started when Mase claimed he
offered to split a $50,000 fee for appearing in Cam's 1998 hit
song "Horse-n-Carriage," instead of him doing the song for free.

Diplomat CEO Jimmy Jones called the show enraged.

"I will do it to you duke," Jones said. "I don't like you. You
shouldn't have came out your mouth. I'll put some dentures in your
mouth. Go back down south with your congregation. Tell the truth.
For you to sit there and lie...you are a reverend."

Jones also charged that Mase left the game due to pressures from
individuals in Harlem who extorted him.

Mase eventually gathered himself and denied the charges that he was
forced out of Harlem. Mase explained that he had already purchased
land in Atlanta, Georgia and was planning to move.

Continuing, he stated, in his slow tone, that after a close friend
was stabbed, he headed down south and that it had nothing to do with
unsavory characters forcing him to leave.

"People grow up, I don't have time for that," Mase said. "[During
commercial break] I was praying for Jimmy, I love them dudes. It's
just sad when people don't understand."

Angry like Jones, Cam'ron called in shortly afterwards, questioning
Mase's motives for returning to the rap game.

"I'm just not into the lies I'm into the truth and that's it. The
only thing you did was took me to counseling, you broke out on
everybody and left. That's what you do, you did it before and you're
gonna do it again," Cam stated on air.

"I'm not a chump like that. [Mase], tell them how you called me and
asked me to do an album last week," Cam told Mase. "[Diplomats are]
gonna make $150 million off the liquor. There aint no money in this
rap game. I just do the music because I am nice. I wish you the
best, but tell the truth."

Cam'ron even called Mase a fraud and said that he had a tape of one
of Mase's sermons, where he said rap music "is the devil."

"You're a reverend lying. I was there," Cam said. "You said rap is
the devil at your speeches in church. I got it on tapeā€¦and [now]
you're rapping [again]," he said. "The reverend is up there lying. I
wish you the best of luck, stop lying."

Mase rebutted, calling the rappers thin-skinned. Mase did admit to
Cam'ron's accusations surrounding his statements about rap but
said, "When I think about how the people need what I have to say [I
changed my view]. It's just like money. The same money that buys
marijuana, buys bibles. Rap is not really of the devil, it's what
people say in it.

"I cannot not express the truth because they're sensitive," Mase
said. "I don't have any problems with them. Even in the bible when a
person knows that you come to say something powerful, they try to
discredit your name. One word from God can wipe out years of

Mase, who said that he was going on the road with Usher to promote
his new album, closed his appearance on the Hot 97 show with a
prayer: "In the name of the Heavenly Father, I thank you today for
forgiving me for all my wrong doing and shortcomings. I thank you
for dying on the cross for all of my sins. I am healed, I am
delivered and I am rich. Amen."

Incidentally, Mase and Jim Jones will release albums on the same
day, August 24.
