Don’t leave while you're hot that’s how Mase screwed up
Throwing shit around, the whole place screwed up
Maybe I should call Mase so he could pray for us

from Kanye West (Ft. Rick Ross) – Devil in a New Dress Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Rapper Ma$e left the rap game after some great success, especially with his debut album Harlem World. Kanye doesn’t want his girl to ruin their relationship — like Ma$e did his lucrative music career — by leaving while things are still good

After giving up hip-hop Ma$e aka Mason Betha became a pastor, making him the go-to guy for rappers dealing with religious issues

Kanye West may also be gifting us a double entendre: “hot,” referring both to Mase’s fame/success and Kanye’s lady’s anger. In other words, he is saying, “Don’t leave while you’re ‘hot’ (heated, pissed off, etc)…That’s like Mase exiting the rap game when he was ‘hot’ (famous, successful, fly, selling a bunch of records)”
