Ma$e to sign with Drake?
Ma$e was one of the biggest rappers of the late '90s and early 2000s, but trailed off shortly thereafter. Despite his hiatus from the music industry, one popular MC is looking to get him out of retirement. Drake, who recently hosted his annual music festival in Canada, spoke with MTV about his aspirations to sign Ma$e to his record label, October's Very Own (OVO).
"Me and Ma$e have just been talking about what he wants to do and what the future holds, what he wants to do, and anything is possible ... I would love to work with him," Drake told the news source. "I told him, 'I hope tonight is not our last conversation.'"
According to BET, OVO was created in 2007 and became official in 2012 after Warner Bros. Records picked up the label with a distribution deal. What started as a way for Drake to get his music out to the world has turned into a popular place for up-and-coming MCs to call home. Not only is Drake the face of the company, but its annual OVO Sound music festival is growing as well. This year's event, which took place Aug. 5 and 6, brought out big name artists like Kanye West, Ma$e and Diddy, who performed for crowds in Toronto.
Would you like to see a Ma$e comeback? Is Drake's label the right spot for the seasoned MC?
