Back in the mid/late 90s when Bad Boys was untop, and Mase was the shit, Ghostface Killah broke his jaw at a New York club, after mase had made some derogative comments about wutang clan. Hmm! That is some gangsta shit. I don't support violence, and i laugh at rappers in their late 30s still talking about how hood and gangsta they are, but, if you say you are gangstar, then you gotta prove it. I guess mase deserved it. He was like a love-boy/braggadocios rapper, so i wonder why he thought he could go the gangsta way and bad mouth wutang.
This is really funny, cos Loon (another past bad boy records signee) has said it several times that he was always getting mase out of trouble. Mase would sleep with someone's girlfriend, and when the guy finds out, and wants to issue the beating on mase, loon would have to step in the way; sort of like his body guard. But i have to wonder, what was mase doing with all that money he was making? Couldn't he have hired bodyguards, or at least moved all the way out of the hood? I guess that was what made him quit rap, and become a minister. And the reason he couldn't stay a minister was because the decision wasn't from deep down his heart; the decision was like his way out of all the trouble, and confusion he had gotten himself into.

After badmouthing Wu-Tang at a concert, Bad Boy recording artist Mase had a run-in with Ghostface and his entourage at New York City club. There was a physical altercation between the two camps, and Mase was left with a broken jaw. This incident became a point of reference for various rappers, including Kanye West on "Through The Wire", "If you could feel how my face felt you would know how Mase felt", and fellow Wu-Tang Killa Bee Shyheim, who witnessed the incident and referred to it in freestyle as the time "Ghostface retired Mase". Ghostface touched on it himself on the track Malcolm "Yo I champunch Mase in his face over some bullshit The other night". In the June 2007 issue of Hip Hop Connection, Wu-Tang affiliate Cilvaringz stated that Ghostface had in fact done jail time for "beating up" Mase. (gossiprocks.com)
