Dr. Mason Durelle Betha Th.D (born August 27, 1977),[1] better known by stage name Mase (often typeset as Ma$e), previously known as Murda Ma$e, as an American rapper, songwriter, television personality and inspirational speaker. He was an artist on Sean "Diddy" Combs' hip hop label Bad Boy Records during the late 1990s. He released two albums on Bad Boy, the widely regarded classic Harlem World and the darker sophomore attempt, Double Up. He retired in 1999 to become a religious preacher, only to return to music in 2004 with the album Welcome Back. In 2005, he attempted to sign to G-Unit Records.

After the G-Unit deal couldn't be finalized, Mase was linked to SRC Records. SRC founder Steve Rifkind was working on signing Mase in 2007, but, like 50 Cent, was unable to come to terms with Diddy over buying out Mase's contract. Rifkind has been on record talking about the album that Mase recorded for SRC, which was to be titled either "Suicide Note" or "The Revival." In an interview with Hip-Hop magazine XXL [2], Rifkind claimed that it would be released by the end of that year and that it was "crazy." The album was never released.

After another hiatus, Mase returned to rap again in June 2009. In October of that year, Diddy signed Mase's release from Bad Boy Records. In November, he dropped his first mixtape in three years, "I Do The Impossible". It featured collaborations with former Children of The Corn members Cam'Ron ("Get It") and Mcgruff ("If I Come Back For You"), and remixes of hit songs like Empire State of Mind. He is currently shopping for a new record deal while working on his fourth album, "The Mason Betha Story". Mase is planning to tour with French Montana in 2010. He is also hard at work launching his label "Well Off Musical"
