It's been 16 long years that Ma$e has been under the wing of Bad Boy Records, whether he was making music or not.  However, he has finally been set free from his contract thanks to Diddy, and now he's brainstorming his next moves.  Since Ma$e has been tied down to a record label for so long, he feels as though it wouldn't be the wisest move to jump right into another long term contract/relationship with another label so soon.

"I've been in that contract for 16 years.  Yeah, the other day he let me out of it, so big shout-outs to Diddy, I guess he woke up feeling good and he wanted to do something good.  At this point, I don't really want to be under nobody from the aspect of being tied in a long, long contract.  It's kinda like breaking up; you don't want to jump into a new relationship.

"I'ma have to go somewhere. I would entertain that.  I love Kanye, I love what he does musically, I love his ability to push the envelope. I like to be around people that's not afraid to be different."
