The IRS would like to have a word with Ma$e.
TMZ is reporting that according to documents filed in Florida by the IRS, the former Bad Boy Records rapper owes a total of $124,774.85 in back taxes dating back from the years 2000, 2001 and 2004. Perhaps coincidentally is the fact that Ma$e tried to make a return to the rap game in 2004 with the LP, Welcome Back.
The news of Ma$e owing Uncle Sam comes after a picture with the MC alongside French Montana, Rick Ross, R&B’s Omarion and producer Rico Love in a Miami studio hit the net last week, inciting buzz that the Harlem rhymeslinger was making yet another comeback.
French then told XXL that Ma$e did record two songs.
“We were in a Miami studio last night and Ma$e just stopped by,” Montana exclusively told XXL. “We were just workin’ on my album. We recorded two songs together—me, Ross and Ma$e. You might hear [Ma$e] on either my album [Excuse My French] or Ross’ [God Forgives, I Don’t] or both.”
The 2012 XXL Freshman wouldn’t share any further details on the tracks, but did say that Ma$e can still spit with the best of them.
“Ma$e sounds good, sound like he never left,” French added. “His flow is crazy. We’re going to let the world hear soon enough. Stay tuned. Just stay tuned.”
Ma$e did appear on French’s buzzworthy track, “New York Minute” back in 2009, but has been relatively quiet on the rap front since.—Jakinder Singh
