Jesus Wept: Jesus Talks, Part II

Mase And Kanye West

"He who glories, let him glory in the Lord . . ."
-- 2 Corinthians 10:17

"The real measure of our labor is whether it is keeping with God's Word and if it reflects His glory rather than our own. Make sure that whatever you do, you do for the Lord."
-- Mart De Haan, President of RBC Ministries

It looks like Kanye's hubris is rubbing off on the comeback kid Ma$e.

"There's no variety in hip-hop right now. You needed me to come back."

So declares prodigal rapper Ma$e.

[The dimpled-face rhyme-spitter] deflects questions about reconciling his rap return with his ministry, declaring only, "Ma$e was never a filthy artist. I was never saying, 'You B's and hos.' So I don't know why people keep asking me about using curse words. All great artists have some spiritual backing. Before this, I was empty with riches on the outside. Now I'm rich on the inside and outside."

Ma$e's CD Welcome Back arrives in stores on Aug. 24. His party banger "Breathe" (featuring his partner-in-rhyme P. Diddy) is blowing up on radio.
