How did Mase earn his money and wealth?
Mase’s debut solo song, Harlem World, topped the Billboard pop charts, and sold more than 280,000 copies in its first week of release in USA. Mase told MTV about his first solo experience: “Well, basically what I’m trying to form is a strong individuality and base for Mase so a lot of people could know that Mase is his own person and Mase can do other things besides rap and music and things in that nature.” Entertainment Weekly said of the album: “…artistically refreshing, well-crafted lyrics… rap’s newest bad boy more than holds his own on his solo debut…his distinctive marble-mouthed drawl… creates a regular-guy persona all too rare in hip-hop.”
The album produced hits such as “Feel So Good” and “Lookin’ at Me”, which were successful in reaching at position #1 on the Billboard charts of Rap, as well as another hit single “What You Want”, which peaked at position #3 on both the Rap and R&B Billboard charts. During that year Mase appeared on songs along with Puff Daddy, Brian McKnight’s “You Should Be Mine, Mariah Carey’s “Honey”, and Brandy’s “Top of the World”.
In 1998, Mase produced his own record label, called “All Out Records”. He signed his Harlem World, which was his group to the label while they were also singing under So So Def Recordings. He and Blinky, Harleen World Rapper, starred on the song Take Me There by Blackstreet & Mýa which was included on the soundtrack of Movie, The Rugrats.

Double Up also highlighted more aggressive material.

He realized that he was leading friends, people, kids and others down a path to hell, stating that he left the music to search God in his soul and follow Him. He professed it was time for him to oblige God in his way, saying rap was not real, and that he wanted to deal with reality and that he is not happy with what he did, no matter how much it paid.
The same year, Mase joined as a freshman at Clark Atlanta University and started taking classes at CAU. Unlike other freshmen, Mase was allowed to live and stay off campus and travel.
