Hey, dropping a short EP today with no promo like Beyoncé! I had some songs laying around from various collaborative projects that never got to see the light of day. I figured there’s no point in having them released after I’m dead (since I may not have full creative control from the afterlife). Plus I wanted to release a free project as kind of a thank you for all the support and encouragement I’ve received over the past year–so help yourself. If anyone DOES decide to purchase this release, they can sleep easy knowing that any revenue will go towards our upcoming North Eastern tour, and not my Sushi X habit. Tour details will be posted here soon.
Also, be sure to like my Facebook fanpage–which Facebook FINALLY (after 18 months) let me name-change to simply, “Masai.” Enjoy.
Good news for people that hate America! Masai will be in Europe this Fall to bring his raps to the continent that invented colonization!

Fresh of the successful Beat*Shot Music Festival (and an awesome show in Rhode Island), Masai breaks out his hosting wings yet again for eMC’s Turning Point Tour in Albany. This bill also features the talents of some Beat*Shot artists and friends, including JB!! aka Dirty Moses, DJ Nate Da Great, elsphinx, DJ White Lotus, and many more! Buy tickets here.
Masai will be hosting the 2014 Beat*Shot Music Festival this year. Technically he’s co-hosting with fellow Beat*Shot alum Phee (from We Stole The Show). Either way he’ll be spending two days holding a mic and announcing some of Hip-Hops top dogs, including Pharoahe Monch, Oddisee, J-Live, Blueprint, Count Bass D, Tanya Morgan and more. Oh, and he’s also performing with ATG…. so there’s that.

February 1st, 2014 I will be rocking the stage at the 6th Annual Beat*Shot Spins for Dilla.
Oh, and I’ll be opening up for some of my heros. No big deal.
What do Pusha T, Kanye West, Oddisee, Drake, Chance The Rapper, and J. Cole have in common? They all have more money than Masai! Oh, also they’re all on this list with Masai, which is equally awesome. But the wise folks at WCDB compiled their annual breakdown of the year’s top albums, and somehow Almost Home made the cut.
