Mase's 'Now We Even' Announced As Rapper's First Album In Years


Ma$e is set to release his first studio album since 2004.

The 38-year-old rapper announced this week that he has his fourth record, "Now We Even," in the works. The former Bad Boy artist took to Twitter to publicize the project, adding that he would love for the album to feature collaborations with artists such as Lauryn Hill, 2 Chainz, Drake, and CeeLo Green.

Ma$e teased the upcoming album last month when he posted a photo from a recording studio with the hashtag #NowWeEven. While he has seemingly started work on the project, he has yet to announce a release date. When asked by a fan when "Now We Even" would hit stores, Ma$e simply responded, "Once I finish it."

Ma$e, who was a major force in late '90s hip-hop, dropped his last album, "Welcome Back," in 2004. The album peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold. Ma$e's most successful project to date was his debut studio album, "Harlem World," which went multi-platinum and hit No. 1 on the chart.
