Mase, who "retired" from rap in 1999 to pursue a career in the ministry, built up thousands of followers split into two churches in Atlanta and Phoenix, preaching the virtues of marriage and family values.
He however released an album in 2004 titled 'Welcome back' but returned back to his pastoral duties shortly afterwards.
Trouble however started this year when Mase and his wife divorced, causing most of his flock to flee in anger.
Now he is said to have dropped all ties with both churches and is playing regular rap gigs around L.A., jumping back into his former lifestyle hardcore.
In fact the rapper-real name Mason Durell Betha-may be releasing another album soon.
'Welcome back' released 10 years ago was a nice album and no doubt fans around the world are eager to see what the former 'bad boy' will cook up this time.
