Former Bad Boy rapper Ma$e might have made a few comebacks, but he says he doesn't regret his surprising retirement in 1999. Ma$e explained to MTV recently how the path of his studies at school took him away from rap.

"Some people after years, they look back and say, 'I wish I would not have done that,' but even though I know the things its cost me, I can honestly say I'm glad I did it because it taught me so much--it taught me who I was and that music didn;t make me," revealed Ma$e. "It would be like Drake dropping music today and going to college. I'm in religious class, I'm in math class and people are looking like, 'Is Ma$e in my class?' When I would leave the class people would just be drawn to me, asking me life questions, so that forced me to start reading the Bible."

This makes Ma$e's strange career moves much more clear and understandable.
