It looks like Ma$e is gonna try and make a comeback to music and it ain’t Gospel.  The former Bad Boy/pastor revealed in a recent interview he’s looking to drop his new album “Now We Even,” sometime in October.   I’m not sure if he’s thrown in the towel as far as his pastoral duties and church obligations completely, but he preached his last sermon in 2012.

Obviously, Ma$e is putting his duties as a pastor on hold, to pursue a career in secular music.  Find out how his congregation feels about his music comeback below inside Tha Wire.

Ma$e explained, "To keep it 100 with you, nobody's gets as many chances as I got. I think, you know, I'm meant to do it, that's the conclusion I keep coming back to. I think I'm just meant to do it. I keep throwing it away, it keep coming back to me. It must be meant."

In the meantime, “Now We Even” features collaborations with Kanye WestRick Ross and Diddy.  His new single "Billboard," features Kanye and Rick Ross and the Harlem native promises, "We just shooting a video in L.A. and in the desert so it's gon' be really sexy."

We’ll see soon enough if he can duplicate his 1997 quadruple platinum debut.  In other news, it’s 'mo money mo problems' for Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Stevie J.  It’s bad enough the producer owes more than a million in back child support, but now it’s being reported he failed a drug test in jail.

BET is reporting the reality star was released from jail Monday June 23rd on $25,000 bond. That's the good news, for the bad news listen to Tha Wire now.
