Ma$e recently shared chilling details about the night The Notorious B.I.G. was killed, shedding light on a harrowing experience he faced in the aftermath of the tragedy. During a candid conversation on the sports talk show “It Is What It Is,” hosted by Cam’ron, the Harlem native revealed a nerve-wracking encounter with a group of Bloods in a Los Angeles hotel.
Reflecting on his experience, Ma$e described being trapped in his hotel room as approximately 70 gang members lingered menacingly in the hallway. He suspected that they may have been searching for additional targets, including Bad Boy artists, raising concerns about his safety during that tumultuous time.
Speaking about the ordeal, Ma$e recounted, “I was in a hotel. I was actually in a hotel with a young lady,” he said. “I was trapped in the hotel. It was about, probably like, 70 or so Bloods in the hallway. I couldn’t even leave my room.”
The atmosphere was tense and fraught with uncertainty. The artist continued, “After Big got killed, they were probably looking for more Bad Boy artists. And I couldn’t even leave the room ’til Gene Deal Diddy’s former bodyguard had to come get me.”
Cam’ron expressed his sympathy, acknowledging the gravity of the situation. He responded, “Damn, that’s fucked up. Sorry.”
Recounting his post-incident thoughts, Ma$e admitted that the experience had a profound impact on him. He said, “I was left in L.A. And from that day, I always said, ‘I’m outta here,’ I was left! I came there with people; I ain’t leave with those people. You know how it goes. Find your way home.”
When asked how he eventually managed to leave the hotel and make it back home safely, the Harlem World rapper explained, “To my recollection, I think we had to go to Vegas or something like that to get back to New York.”
