Release free music
Appearances on Wale’s “Slight Work” remix and G.O.O.D. Music’s Cruel Summer show that Ma$e still has the flow to pay the bills, and a Summer Jam cameo showed that people are happy to see him again. But the real foundation to Betha’s legacy was Harlem World, one of the strongest debuts from rap’s commercialized shiny suit era. To even attempt to get his spot back, Ma$e needs to prove that he can still make a full project that fans can enjoy from top to bottom; before that, dropping an EP with only a few songs may be a good idea to ease fans back in. He also needs to make it free, until listeners can trust him again.
