Ma$e Finally Addresses Diddy Drama, Sort Of

Ma$e breaks his silence on the ongoing drama surrounding Bad Boy Records mogul, Sean “Diddy” Combs, shortly after he apologized for physically assaulting a woman following the release of a video capturing the assault.

During a recent episode of the It Is What It Is podcast, hosts Cam’ron, Treasure ‘Stat Baby’ Wilson, and Ma$e revisited Cam’s viral appearance on CNN. They criticized the network for frequently reaching out to them during controversies but not to promote “shit that’s positive.”

While remaining tight-lipped on the specifics, the rapper known for hits like “Feel So Good” hinted that he will address the matter in an upcoming project.

“And, I’m saving my takes for the documentary,” Ma$e revealed at the 5:38 mark. “So, if ya’ll wondering how I’m feel it’s coming soon.”

Taking to social media on Sunday (May 19), Puffy responded to chilling video footage obtained by CNN, which captured him during an altercation with the “Me & U” songstress.

“It’s so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you gotta do that,” he began, before claiming he was not himself: “I mean I hit rock bottom. But I make no excuses.”

“My behavior on the video was inexcusable. I take full responsibility for my actions in that video,” he added. “I was disgusted then when I did it, I’m disgusted now. I went and sought professional help, had to go to therapy, rehab. Had to ask God for his mercy and grace. I’m so sorry. I’m committed to being a better man each and every day. I’m not asking for forgiveness. I’m truly sorry.”

Ma$e’s recent remarks echo his sentiments toward Puff’s ongoing legal battles earlier this year.

Speaking to Cam on their podcast, the “Welcome Back” rapper discussed the raids carried out by federal agents at Diddy’s Miami and Los Angeles homes on Monday (March 25), as Puff is at the center of a Homeland Security sex trafficking investigation.

“Reparations is getting closer and closer,” he began. “I’ll be sure to give you your percentage.”

“It’s amazing that all of this would transpire on that day,” he added, noting the federal raids coinciding with the 27th anniversary of Notorious B.I.G.’s iconic Life After Death album and the 21st anniversary of The Diplomats’ album Diplomatic Immunity.

“That’s eerie, man,” he continued.

Ma$e’s stance on the situation isn’t exactly shocking news for fans, given his rollercoaster relationship with his ex-boss. They’ve been playing the money blame game for what feels like forever.

In 2020, Ma$e claimed he struggled to regain his publishing rights from Combs. Though, he ultimately secured these rights until August 2023.
