Mase is getting back into the swing of things as he prepares to drop a new album, titled Now We Even, in the fall of 2014, which will be his first album since 2004's Welcome Back.

He dropped a new single featuring singer Eric Bellinger, "Nothing", back in May, and while that receives radio play he's prepping something much bigger for his next single. During a quick interview backstage at Atlanta’s Birthday Bash 19, the rapper spoke on his next single "Billboard", which he reveals will feature Kanye West and Rick Ross.

During the same interview he revealed that Now We Even is set to drop in October. "It should be out the first week in October. We gon' have like Yayo on it, Ross, Puff Dipset. It's gon' be really special," Mase promised.

"This will be what I would have put out after Harlem World," Mase added, when asked how this new LP stacks up to previous efforts.

Catch the full interview below. A music video for "Nothing" is coming soon.
