Ma$e is back from his nearly decade-long hiatus and announced that he is working on a new album.

The rapper revealed his latest project on Twitter this week and said his album is titled Now We Even. 

In one particular post, the former Bad Boy artist said his “ideal album” would feature collaborations with artists like Lauryn Hill, 2 Chainz, CeeLo Green, Diddy and Drake, among a handful of other musicians.

Ma$e’s last album, Welcome Back, was released in 2004, which quickly climbed the charts and ultimately reached certified gold status.

However, his debut album Harlem World was released in 1997 and launched the rapper’s career after earning multi-platinum sales, ultimately solidifying the rapper as one of the top distinguished artists in 90s hip-hop.

As for his new album, the 38-year-old rapper has yet to set a release date.

When asked when Now We Even will be available, Mase told one fan, “Once I finish it.”
