The rapper’s battle for his music rights has been public knowledge for years.
The contention primarily revolved around a deal from the late ‘90s when he signed with Diddy’s Bad Boy Records.
The conflict escalated in 2020 when the rapper openly criticized Diddy on social media.
He alleged that Diddy had initially bought his publishing rights for a mere $20,000 and later declined Mase’s $2 million offer to repurchase his catalog.
This resolution signifies a momentous occasion in the music industry.
It emphasizes the importance of artists having control over their creations.
As the industry continues to evolve, it’s crucial for artists to be aware of their rights and to advocate for fair deals.
