The two Harlem rappers were once brothers in arms, taking the rap world by storm as both solo artists and cohorts in the group Children Of The Corn — which also included Big L, Herb McGruff and the late Bloodshed.
But after Ma$e decided to retire from rap and move to Atlanta to become a pastor, things got heated between the two rappers and a feud soon ensued that lasted for almost two decades.
On Monday (August 1), while sitting down with Million Dollaz Worth of Game, Ma$e told hosts Gillie Da Kid and Wallo that he regretted the beef with Killa, and said the dispute soiled a relationship he never wanted to ruin.
Now, in a new video shared by Ma$e’s sister Stason Betha, the former Bad Boy rapper appears to have made up with Cam, jumping on the phone with the Dipset leader.
Ma$e, who is all smiles in the clip, says to Cam’ron: “Killa, what’s good?” followed by a laugh. After Cam responds, Ma$e then jokes: “Where’s Mr. Petty at these days?” seemingly in reference to “Dinner Time,” a 2017 diss record aimed at Ma$e on which Cam raps: “You done opened up a door, I’m petty, ready for war.”
Stason captioned the post: “Ok now @rsvpmase and @mr_camron I DEFINITELY DID NOT SEE THIS COMING but I’m here for it!!!! Smh y’all gotta stop with this nonsense or I’m swinging on both of y’all!!!”
After a series of hearts, her caption ended with the hashtags: #The2KingsOfPetty, #WhenMenGrowUp, #ILoveIt, #Mase and #Cam.

Ma$e later posted the clip to his Instagram, to which Cam replied with multiple hands up emojis in the comments.
The problems between Ma$e and Cam began in 1999 after Ma$e left New York for the ATL, which some have speculated happened because of an ongoing feud he had with a street figure named Baby Maine back in his hometown of Harlem.
Ma$e returned to the rap game five years later with a new album called Welcome Back, which he promoted on Flunk Flex’s Hot 97 radio program. During the show, Cam and Jim Jones called in to interrogate Ma$e over his abrupt departure from Harlem. The trio argued live on Hot 97, with Cam calling him a “fraud.”
Numerous diss tracks followed between the pair, the most noteworthy being Cam’s diss on “Take ‘Em to Church” off his iconic 2004 album Purple Haze.
“Everybody Welcoming this, Welcoming that/ He wasn’t welcome in the first place, how we welcome him back?” Juelz Santana rapped on the track. Cam added: “Do Harlem a favor, get a church or something.”
While Cam’ron continued to insult Ma$e both in interviews and in tracks, the latter didn’t return fire until 2017 with his track “The Oracle.” The two then resumed trading shots at one another online and in a few diss tracks before tensions fizzled out unresolved.
Elsewhere during his interview on Million Dollaz Worth of Game, Ma$e also addressed allegations of questionable business practices involving Fivio Foreign.
The New York drill rapper had previously claimed on the same podcast that he had signed with Ma$e’s RichFish Records for $5,000, and that a friend of his pressured him into signing the deal.
Ma$e addressed the situation, claiming that although he did give Fivio $5,000 to start off with, the drill rapper received up to $750,000 in total.
However, Fivio doesn’t look like he’ll be letting up on Ma$e anytime soon, as he’s just teased a new record that samples one of the Harlem native’s classic records in an apparent attempt to troll Ma$e.
