Product Description

Amazon.com

Harlem World describes a hedonistic lifestyle infomercialist Tom Vu would envy. Girls, riches, mo' money, mo' problems--it's all part of the game when you're Sean "Puffy" Combs's protégé, Mase. With his distinctive, narcoleptic vocals, Mase paints vivid pictures of singular Mase-ian problems on the dance-floor hits "Feel So Good," "Cheat On U," and "Wanna Hurt Mase?" Harlem World seems like a nice shiny package of proven hit making; problem is, Mase packs the charisma of Matt Dillon (always promising, but always the supporting actor). He has trouble keeping Harlem World interesting, hence the preponderance of guests, including Busta Rhymes, Lil' Kim, Jay-Z, Total, and Puffy, of course. Good news: the Puff Daddy chop shop is open for beat recycling, and Harlem World will ring more than a few bells of recognition. Not-so-good news: Puffy's style of commercial rap is dependent on charisma (see the Notorious B.I.G. and Lil' Kim), and Mase is running on empty. --Todd Inoue

With the death of The Notorious B.I.G., Puffy needed someone else to replace him as the top MC on Bad Boy Records. Mase was the next in line to blow. After appearing on "Mo Money Mo Problems" on Biggie's album and multiple tracks on Puffy's "No Way Out Album" in 1997, Mase finally got to drop his album, "Harlem World" the same year.

Mase hits us with a solid debut album. There is about two weak tracks on here and some of the hooks weren't up to par but besides that, this album is fire. Check it out if your a fan of Mase or the OLD Bad Boy Records.

Mase's whiny nasal voice is reminiscent of Puff Daddy's, which I noticed when it remained difficult to distinguish the two from each other after several listenings. After Puffy lost the man who wrote all his lyrics for him, Biggie, he quickly replaced him with Mase, and continues to steal beats and rhythms from elsewhere to rocket his artists to quick but short-lived 'fame'. Puff Daddy's habit of stealing songs has angered me repeatedly, and I don't think I will buy any more Bad Boy merchandise or listen to the radio when the songs are playing; it's like listening to the oldies station because old stuff keeps showing up. That idiot Puff Daddy just cannot stop sampling, sampling, sampling, sampling, and pretending he's something he's not.

Format: Audio CD
Don't buy this CD unless you are a teenage girl infatuated with Mase's baby-face, because otherwise, not even the cover will hold any sort of appeal. Notice that most of the five star reviews of this album contain somewhere in them "Mase is the cutest man alive" or "Mase is my honey-bunny." Now let's be real. If you know anything about rap or even take rap seriously, this cannot be a good sign. When Mase rhymes over music (I hesitate to call it rap, and it's hard to say rhymes when sometimes he doesn't do that), he sounds like my drunk uncle Pookie. He slurs everything he says and rhymes at a snail's pace. The only part of the album that can even be considered mildly gratifying are the guest appearances, which actually aren't even that impressive. Hey, I gave Mase a chance, but I guess I probably shouldn't have. Oh well. We can just toss this album in the 'Pop' trash bin where it belongs...

Shorty after I started the 7th grade, this cd was released and introduced the world as Diddy's new side-kick (every rapper needs one, especially when they suck, lol). In a simular fashion to Diddy's summer release, No Way Out, Harlem World was listenable, although Mase is'nt that much of a great rapper while his boss sucks (wow, thats twice I said that, but its true). Mase was still ridin' high from his successful appearances on albums by 112, Diddy, and Notorious B.I.G. (most notably, "Mo Money, Mo Problems") in the past year. They did pick out some great singles such as "Lookin' At Me" (one of the first songs produced by The Neptunes and a few tracks that did'nt rely on sampling), "What You Want (with Bad Boy recording group, Total)" and "Feel So Good" (the best "Hollywood Swinging" sample ever), but what sucked in two of the three songs was Diddy throwing in those annoying hooks and ad-libs (just as annoying as him dancing on other artists' videos, LMAOH). He's been doing that since Biggie's Ready To Die, but became much more of a nunsense in 1997 then he was in 94". The three single released were the prime examples of "pop, shiney suit hip-hop" of which was great in my Junior High years (I.S. 227), but did'nt age well in the next few years. Mase was'nt all about bragging about money, cars and b's and songs like "N-'s Wanna Act," "Will They Die 4 U," and "24 Hours To Live" (the latter is my favorite Mase song although it also featured The Lox, DMX and Black Rob) were examples of real life situations that also were played on Hot 97 back in the day (I haven't heard "Will They Die For You" since 98"). Then you got the extremley cheesey and annoying, "Jealous Guys" (a crappy remake of New Edition's 1983 hit, "Jealous Girl").Read more ›
