Ma$e released his breakout solo album, Harlem World, 17 years ago. Now the Harlem rapper says he finally has the right follow-up for it, reports.

In a recent interview with Atlanta's Hot 107.9, he spoke of his next single, "Billboard," noting that Kanye West and Rick Ross will be featured on it. "We got something really serious coming," he said. The album will also feature guest spots from his mentor Puff Daddy, Yayo, and Dipset.

"This would be what I would have put out after Harlem World," Ma$e said, adding that the albums that ultimately followed his debut weren't want he really wanted to do but were all he could do given the restrictions on his career at the time.

Back in May, Ma$e dropped "Nothing" featuring Eric Bellinger on the hook. Ma$e revealed that he just finished shooting a video for the track in the Los Angeles desert. "It's going to be really sexy," he said.

The album, titled Now We Even, is scheduled to drop the first week of October. It comes about ten after the rapper's last album, 2004's Welcome Back, which celebrates its decade anniversary this year.
