Cam’ron recently dropped a bombshell during an Instagram Live session aboard a yacht, revealing a collaborative album with Ma$e that remains unreleased. With a mix of frustration and bewilderment, he shared, “Me and Ma$e got an album. He said we can’t put it out! I don’t know what it’s about. We did six-seven songs. We do the songs and then he say, ‘No.’”

Expressing his puzzlement over Ma$e’s decision to withhold the music, Cam’ron explained, “I don’t know what Ma$e is saving them for. But we got songs together and not together. I’m just not allowed to play them.” He also praised Ma$e’s unreleased catalog, emphasizing, “Ma$e got mad songs. Them shits is hot too. All Ma$e songs is hot.”

Despite his eagerness to share the music with the world, Cam’ron respects Ma$e’s wishes, admitting, “I asked him, ‘Could I play them?’ and he told me, ‘No.’ Maybe they just for him to enjoy.” Reflecting on their reconciliation and their successful sports talk show, Cam’ron hinted at taking their act on tour, indicating a strong partnership beyond music.

As individuals, Cam’ron’s latest project, The Lost Tapes Vol. 1, saw daylight in 2023, while Ma$e’s last album dates back to 2004’s Welcome Back. The duo’s reunion in 2022 marked the end of a longstanding feud that had lingered since the late 1990s, paving the way for their joint venture, It Is What It Is, which quickly became a sensation in sports media.

While the show garnered attention for featuring controversial figures like O.J. Simpson, both Cam’ron and Ma$e paid tribute to the NFL star and convicted felon following his recent passing from cancer. Their journey from childhood friends to influential media personalities underscores their enduring bond and their impact on both music and sports culture.
