Team with a superproducer
Another one of Ma$e’s strong suits with Bad Boy was working with The Hitmen, Bad Boy’s multi-platinum group of producers that included Deric D-Dot Angelletie, Stevie J, Chucky Thompson and Rich “Young Lord” Frierson. To find his spot back, Ma$e will likely need one producer, or a close-knit group of beatmakers, to give him a unified hit-making sound that will make his records stable and digestible. Kanye West has mastered the pop formula and has said that Ma$e is his favorite rapper, along with shouting out the Harlem native in several of his songs, so he may be an ideal candidate for executive producing an album. Drake’s OVO team of Noah “40” Shebib, T-Minus and Boi1da may be able to cook up a new formula for him.
