After bringing him out for the recent 2013 OVO Fest, Drake sat down with MTV to explain his relationship with Harlem rap star Ma$e.
During the chat, he called the former Bad Boy rapper “the original fly guy,” and talked about whether he’d sign him to his OVO imprint.
“Funny enough, me and Ma$e have just been talking about what the future holds, what he wants to do,” Drake explained. “Anything is possible, man. I told Ma$e, ‘You’re Ma$e at the end of the day, so I don’t think you should end up on anybody else’s label.’ I would love to be involved [with Ma$e’s work]. Just like I know Kanye [West] takes an interest in Ma$e as well because Ma$e is the original fly guy that made it all look extremely fun.”
Drake also talked about the future between the two, making it clear his OVO Fest won’t be the last time the two interact.
“As far as Ma$e goes, I’d love to work with Ma$e, to be honest,” he said. “I told him, ‘I hope tonight’s not our last conversation.’ It’s been cool. We kicked it last night, just went out and got something to eat trying to get ready for today [OVO Fest]. It was cool. He’s a great guy, man.”
