Fiddy’s recollection of his past dealings with Mason Betha’s Diddy (back in the mid-2000’s, when he had interest in bringing Ma$e to his G-Unit) aren’t exactly consistent with what the Harlem Shaker had to say a few months back. “Puff would tell you I got really, really paid,” Ma$e said, during a Hot 107.5 interview. “Puff wanna give me another check and I’m gonna take it.”
According to Fif, Puffy didn’t only pull a pimp move — putting Ma$e on the bidding block — he says Mr. ‘I got money hangin’ out the anus’ threw a wrench at Ma$e’s music career, when he shot down the million Fif was offering up.
“Puff Daddy wanted too much money for him to hand Ma$e over. I was like, ‘What you looking for for that?’ He said two million. I’m like, ‘Ma$e ain’t worth two million with two million in his pocket. Are you crazy?’
This is right before we went on that [G-Unit] tour. The principal is more important. … He was a million over what Dep was supposed to [make]. He could have made a million dollars out of it but he’s saying two million. We could have did it for the million dollars. He could have got that back.”
