2015 BET Awards - Show

So Ma$e did a song about when New York was New York, but used a Dr. Dre beat. Just think about that for a second.

We enjoyed Ma$e’s reunion with Diddy during the Bad Boy set at the BET Awards back in June, and we’re trying to figure out if we like his new song. Titled “#WhenNYWasNY,” Ma$e oddly decided to rap over Tupac’s “California Love.”

With Dr. Dre’s Compton tearing up iTunes and Mason Betha’s return, it’s safe to say it’s 1998 again. Take a listen and tell us what you think in the comment section below.
