Drake & Ma$e: The Bromance?
After recently getting the oppurtunity to invite legendary rapper Ma$e and Diddy on the OVO Fest stage in his hometown of Toronto, you would think Drake would be starstruck. But instead the YMCMB rapper is past that and is looking to the future with plans to help Ma$e work on new music, and maybe even signing him to his label.
During an interview with MTV, Drake explains his feelings to performing with Ma$e, and his hopes that their relationship will grow in the future. “I would love to be involved [with Ma$e’s work].. Anything is possible, man. I told Ma$e,’You’re Ma$e at the end of the day, so I don’t think you should end up on anybody else’s label. Just like I know Kanye [West] takes an interest in Ma$e as well because Ma$e is the original fly guy that made it all look extremely fun.”
“As far as Ma$e goes, I’d love to work with Ma$e, to be honest,” Drake said. “I told him, ‘I hope tonight’s not our last conversation.’ It’s been cool. We kicked it last night, just went out and got something to eat trying to get ready for today [OVO Fest]. It was cool. He’s a great guy, man.”
Ma$e feels kind of the same about Drake. MTV also held an interview with the rapper last December where he got to explain what thinks of Drizzy, his music, and working with him.
“I think that he’s the closest to what I believe I would’ve been, if I didn’t leave music,” Ma$e said. “I like his ability to express how he feels, not being afraid, and he can really rap.” During the interview, Ma$e also said that there are only two rappers he would sign a deal with. “The only two that would make sense to me would be Kanye or Drake…Those are the only two that I would entertain.”
