Ma$e Recalls How First Business Manager Ran Off With His Money

by UNN Feed

Ma$e learned the lesson of shady managers early on when his first-ever business manager ran off with his money – along with cash belonging to some of his other clients.

The Harlem native recalled the story on an episode of his It Is What It Is sports talk show with Cam’ron that was released on Friday (February 23).
