Hip-hop fans were left buzzing after seeing a picture (left) of French Montana, Rick Ross, Omarion, producer Rico Love and none other than Ma$e, that hit the net on Tuesday night (April 17).

“Is Ma$e back again?,” fans commonly reacted to the  the flick.

Well, XXLMag.com reached out to French Montana on Wednesday (April 17) to give fans a back story of the picture that got everyone talking.

“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.”

Although the current 2012 XXL Freshman wouldn’t divulge any further details on the songs, he did mention that Ma$e is sounding pretty sharp and this collaboration with himself, Rozay and the former Bad Boy has been in the works.

“We been planning it,” French said. “Ma$e sounds good, sound like he never left. His flow is crazy. We’re going to let the world hear soon enough. Stay tuned. Just stay tuned.”

French and Ma$e are far from strangers. The Harlemite jumped on the remix to French’s buzzworthy record, “New York Minute” back in 2009.

Maybach Music Group rapper Gunplay too confirmed with XXL that he bumped into Ma$e in Miami last night and is looking forward to whatever collaboration is heard.

“I’ve been a fan of Ma$e,” Gunplay said, “since the Children of the Corn.”—Mark Lelinwalla (@xxl_mark)
