Ma$e Says ‘I’m Done With the Church’

July 25, 2014

mase in the placeBET reports that Ma$e has cut all ties with the church and is now devoting all of himself to music. TMZ reports that the Harlem rapper is no longer leading the El Elyon International Church, months after filing for divorce from wife Twyla Betha.

The 36-year-old has been in a similar predicament before. In 1999, he left the music industry in order to work in the church. Throughout that time, he amassed a large following at churches in Atlanta and Phoenix, preaching relationship and family values.

In 2004, Mase announced his return by way of the gold-selling album Welcome Back, but it wasn’t until recently that he apparently decided to make the full move back into music.

After his marriage crumbled, Mase’s followers left, since he wasn’t exactly living the life that he was preaching about, according to TMZ. In the end, Mase was able to settle his divorce after he dropped the fight for full custody of the couple’s two children. He was ordered to pay Twyla $6,000 a month in spousal and child support, while she was ordered to return all of his music. 


Mase’s new album will feature Kanye West, Rick Ross and Diddy, and will be released in October 2014.
