Was it when Ma$e retired? He couldn't hack it
On April 20, 1999, during an interview with Funkmaster Flex on New York radio station Hot 97, Mase announced his retirement from music to pursue a calling from God. He felt he was leading people, friends, kids and others down a path to hell. So he stated that he left to find God in his heart and follow him. He declared it was time for him to serve God in his way. He felt that rap was not real and that he wanted to deal with reality.
