Ma$e Says The Notorious B.I.G.'s Legacy "Has Been Watered Down"
The song, which features Diddy, Swizz Beatz, Rick Ross, Meek Mill and T.I., is reportedly one Ma$e believes is hurting The Notorious B.I.G.'s legacy.
Though it is unclear if his post was aimed at Khaled and company for the release of the song, Ma$e posted an Instagram image of The Notorious B.I.G. on the social network, with the following caption:
Niggas sold u out BIG. I hate the way your legacy has been watered down. I don't have to be from Bk. Let him rest. #respect
This came shortly after DJ Khaled's release of "I Feel Like Pac, I Feel Like Biggie," a song which premiered on New York radio station Hot 97, leading many to believe Ma$e's criticism was aimed at the track and its performers.
DJ Khaled's song, "I Feel Like Pac, I Feel Like Biggie," makes references to the lives and deaths of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.
Tupac was shot and killed in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 13, 1996. He was 25. The Notorious B.I.G. was shot and killed in Los Angeles, California on March 9, 1997. He was 24. Both murders remain unsolved.
Ma$e collaborated with The Notorious B.I.G. and Diddy on several songs, including 1996's "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down" and 1997's "Been Around the World." Ma$e released several albums through Bad Boy Entertainment, including 1997's Harlem World, 2000's Double Up and 2004's Welcome Back.
Ma$e has been at odds with his former boss, Diddy, due to contractual issues. However, the two appeared to reconcile during an OVO Fest performance in August.
