Mase Sued: Rapper Lawsuit Stems From $35,000 Jewelry Bill

Former Bad Boy rapper-turned-preacher Mase is being sued for not paying a jewelry bill.

According to, Aydin and Company, a jeweler located in Atlanta, Ga., has filed suit against the Harlem native for skipping out on a $35,000 bill. The company filed suit in Georgia, claiming that Mase has been delinquent on several bills dating back to 2005.

Attempts to settle the legal discrepancy were shot down by Mase, who they accuse of “evading service.” The company alleges that he has been dodging them for months, even having his staff turn representatives from the jewelry store away from his house. As a result, Aydin and Company has been forced to hire a process server to file an affidavit in the case.

The company seeks full payment of the tab, plus 1.5 percent monthly interest added for each month that the bill went unpaid as well as coverage of attorney fees.

Mase has been battling it out with the company since summer 2011, and responded by filing his own legal paperwork, moving that the suit be dismissed on grounds of bad service. He also maintains to have never actually signed an “alleged contract at issue in case.”

As a rapper on Diddy‘s Bad Boy label imprint, Mase hit the music scene with his ‘Harlem World’ debut in 1997, but left the industry to follow his religious calling. After a five year hiatus, he returned to the game by way of 2004’s ‘Welcome Back,’ and attempted to sign to 50 Cent‘s G-Unit records, but the deal was stalled by Diddy’s refusal to let the 36-year-old out of his Bad Boy contract.

In October 2009, Diddy officially released Mase from the contract, signing the paperwork live on-air during an interview at Atlanta’s V-103 radio station.
