In a new interview, Mase reveals that Drake, Puff, Meek Mill & Cam'ron will be on his upcoming album.
While we just heard Eric Bellinger get featured on Mase’ latest single “Nothing”, it appears Mase has some more big names for us on his upcoming solo album, Now We Even. On Thursday night, Mase chopped it up with DJ L-NYCE to promote his new single, and he ended up dishing out some information on his new album.
According to XXL Magazine, Ma$e told DJ L-NYCE some names that would be on his upcoming album, including Cam’ron and Meek Mill, but the two names that really stood out were Drake and Diddy. In the past, Mase stated via his twitter that he’d love to work with the OVO artist and Drake admitted that the feeling was mutual.
"Now We Even is expected to drop on September 23rd, depending on the success of the single, but no later than Halloween,” said Ma$e about the album’s release date.
Here are some key excerpts from their interview below:
