Ma$e Says The Notorious B.I.G.'s Legacy

Ma$e appears to criticize DJ Khaled and his featured guests after the release of "I Feel Like Pac, I Feel Like Biggie," a song likely off Khaled's upcoming "Suffering from Success" album.

Ma$e, a former member of Bad Boy Entertainment, appears to have criticism for DJ Khaled and his featured guests after the release of "I Feel Like Pac, I Feel Like Biggie," according to xxlmag.com.

The song, which features Diddy, Swizz Beatz, Rick RossMeek Mill and T.I., is reportedly one Ma$e believes is hurting The Notorious B.I.G.'s legacy, as per xxlmag.com.

Though it is unclear if his post was aimed at Khaled and company for the release of the song, Ma$e posted an Instagram image of The Notorious B.I.G. on the social network, with the following caption:

Niggas sold u out BIG. I hate the way your legacy has been watered down. I don't have to be from Bk. Let him rest. #respect

This came shortly after DJ Khaled's release of "I Feel Like Pac, I Feel Like Biggie," a song which premiered on New York radio station Hot 97, leading many to believe Ma$e's criticism was aimed at the track and its performers, as per xxlmag.com. 

DJ Khaled's song, "I Feel Like Pac, I Feel Like Biggie," makes references to the lives and deaths of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. 

Tupac was shot and killed in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 13, 1996. He was 25. The Notorious B.I.G. was shot and killed in Los Angeles, California on March 9, 1997. He was 24. Both murders remain unsolved.

Ma$e collaborated with The Notorious B.I.G. and Diddy on several songs, including 1996's "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down" and 1997's "Been Around the World." Ma$e released several albums through Bad Boy Entertainment, including 1997's Harlem World, 2000's Double Up and 2004's Welcome Back.

Ma$e has been at odds with his former boss, Diddy, due to contractual issues. However, the two appeared to reconcile during an OVO Fest performance in August

DJ Khaled's song, "I Feel Like Pac, I Feel Like Biggie," can be heard below, following Ma$e's

    I don't agree with Mase a lot but there is a thin line between paying homage and biting. On top of that ain't none of the featured Mc's even in that league or conversation.

    "Can he not have an opinion about niggas using and exploiting his dead friends name on a shitty song" He can have an opinion, but how much you wanna bet if Khaled had reached out to Mase he would have jumped on the song in a second. It's easy for has been's to talk shit when their career is gone. Biggie's legacy has been dormant for years now. Where was Mase then?

    Biggie fooled me! I thought he really grew up living in a shack and eating sardines and was forced ro sell drugs on the street corner but I just found out after watching this documentary that Biggie grew up in a nice 2 bedroom house and his Mum was a teacher who made enough money to send Biggie to Catholic school and feed him whatever he desired. Biggies MuM also won a huge settlement from the city and used the money to live comfortably with Biggie. He's my favorite rapper next ro Shotty Hoorah but he shouldn't have beat up LiL Kim and made us think he was poor!

    No integrity and honour left in this shit, from the clown ass trolls that post anonymously on DX and misguided fans to the lack of creativity and originality in the music.
