The post featured a screenshot of their exchange where they both said they are still brothers. Mase’s caption for the post completely went against that idea, with the rapper saying “We’re not cool. I shook his hand ‘cause I won. That’s it. As a man that’s what you do after you win unanimously. TheOracle #mase @RSVPMase.”
So after the exchange of diss tracks and the few memes tossed around, it seems that Cam’ron and Mase were simply having a brotherly spat. After Cam dropped his response record, “Dinner Time,” to Mase’s “The Oracle,” to which many fans felt was tepid at best, the two Harlemites apparently chalked the entire thing up as good fun. Mase commented on a post telling Cam:
YOU STILL MY BROTHER IF YOU WOULD TO BE… This was just for bragging rights #mase #theoracle
Killa Cam followed up by responding:
yea this was fun.. u still my bro too. Glad I get to brag lol. So when u leaving Harlem again? 2mr?
It seems as though this was just one of the classic cases of rappers using their platforms to address some underlying issues as well as testing their skills against one another. Everyone will have to wait and see if this is entirely over.
