Mason Betha, also known as Mase, a multi-platinum-selling rapper from the late 1990s, who retired from the industry 13 years ago to become a pastor, is returning to the hip-hop scene once again. He is now looking back with regret at his faith formation and ordination.
In a TBN interview, Betha, 34, first tried to re-emerge from his initial retirement back into a rap career, he spoke about the people who worried about a return to hip-hop pulling the pastor away from his Christian calling.
“Why is it Christians are more confident in the Devil taking me more than Christ keeping me,” Betha questions. “What I have inside of me is more powerful than anything the world could ever offer me.”
Betha asked hip-hop radio DJ Funkmaster Flex for help with a comeback in a radio interview last month where he spoke about his initial choice to leave the rap industry alone to honor God as a preacher.
