Mase left the rap game at the height of his career to answer God’s calling on his life. After a few years behind the pulit, he decided to try his hand a rapping again in 2004 with the hit single “Welcome Back.” Today, he’s back in the church and hopefully, he’s made his mind up this time.

Rev Run wears many hats these days. He’s a rapper, father, husband, reality star, motivational speaker, author and Pentecostal minister.
Loon traded in his Bad Boy rap days to live a life for Allah in 2008. Today he goes by Amir Junaid Muhadith and works as an Islamic spiritual leader.
