Fivio Foreign got dragged into the long-simmering financial beef between Mase and Diddy when 50 Cent accused Mase of signing the young NYC drill rapper to the same type of exploitive deal that Diddy signed Mase to all of those years ago.
Fivio cleared all of that up in a Hot 97 interview with Peter Rosenberg, saying his deal with Mase is A-OK.
According to Fivio, Mase wanted to sign him and fellow Brooklyn drillers Jay Dee and Dee Savv after hearing their track. "Blixky Inna Box." [Jump to 11 minutes]
"He was hip to the sound, to the Brooklyn drill sound... So he wanted to sign me, Jay Dee, Dee Savv," Foreign said. "I didn't really think to look over the contract too much. So it was a production deal... He don't own none of my publishing .. I f*ck with Diddy, his children, I f*ck with Mase. That was the first situation that presented itself, I jumped on it. But then I went to Columbia, like as my sh*t started getting more lit a year later."
Fivio added that he used a lawyer for Columbia deal and he's very happy with it, as he is his Mase situation.
