Influential rapper Mase (Ma$e) is set to make his return to music, with his first album in over nine years, Now We Even.

Making the announcement on Twitter last night, Ma$e also unveiled his dream collaborations for the album, hinting that whilst no collaborations had yet to be confirmed, his wish-list included Cee-Lo Green, 2 Chainz and Lauryn Hill.

90s hip-hop & R&B fans are more than likely rubbing their hands with glee with this news; Ma$e was one of the founding fathers of the fusion of the two urban genres, with such classics as What You Want (featuring R&B girl group Total) and the Kelly Price-featuring uptempo Feel So Good.

Check out some old-school Ma$e below, and get excited for his return! Now We Even has not been given a confirmed release date as of yet:
