Ma$e Outs Puffy As Bad Boy Slave Master!December 19th, 2012
Almost ‘No Way Out’?
Ma$e is outing Puffy as a man who may like to treat his Bad Boys like slaves. That’s because the former Bad Boy recording artist says not only was he tied to Puffy with an iron clad contract, but he was also expected to work for free!
During a recent interview with MTV’s Sway, Ma$e revealed Puffy wanted him to do the “No Way Out” tour for free — explaining he was replaced by Lil Cease, after quitting his spot over not getting paid.
Here’s what Ma$e had to say:
“I retired once in 1999 but in 2004 I was held under so much paperwork that I couldn’t do anything.
Diddy wanted 50 to give him all of the money he thought I owed him, and I thought he owed ME money… so that was the invisible battle. When I did the tour with Diddy I was doing it for free at first.
Everything in my life there’s been this drastic stand to get paid from it. That whole ‘No Way Out’ tour I was doing it for free. So when I stopped getting paid I stopped going out. So they got Lil Cease to do my parts”
Did Puff Daddy become one of hip hop’s wealthiest figures by refraining from paying his signed artists? Of course! Don’t believe me.. Ask the penny pincher Russell Simmons.
