On a memorable skit from former Bad Boy rapper Ma$e’s 1997 hit album Harlem World, there was a sketch where the star confused the name of a girl he was dating named “Arion.” Well, it turns out she was really a girl he was involved with. Not only that, but Arion was apparently the source of friction between Ma$e and Jay-Z back in the day.
“A girl named Arion,” Ma$e replied when asked what started the feud in an MTV interview. “All my beefs are over either some girl that went wrong.” According to Ma$e, Arion was a girl affiliated with Jay and Dame’s crew. Ma$e more-or-less dogged her, and Jay took exception.
“I guess Jay inherited it because me and him never really had a problem,” Ma$e explained. “He said something, I said something back and that was about it.”
