Back in October of 2009, Mase made a surprise visit at an Atlanta radio station where Diddy was appearing, in an attempt to get him sign some papers. However, it was unclear what those papers actually allowed for.

At the time, Mase said he had his "freedom." But, I asked then, "from what, exactly?" Diddy doesn't seem like the type to just sign random papers, so I doubted that it was a full release from contractual obligations.

It turns out that was true. In an interview with MTV's RapFix Live, Mase revealed that Diddy had agreed to dissolve his contract, even though it had not yet been fulfilled.

This follows a series of Mase and Bad Boy related news this year. After appearing with Diddy on the remix to Wale's "Slight Work," Mase said that the pair were "probably cooler than I thought." French Montana has been working with the Harlem rapper, as well.

Update: The video has now been marked private. Even though it had been up for 9 months, apparently the wave of press prompted someone to say they didn't want it out yet.

9 months ago, Los Angeles-based film maker Thrilliam posted the music video he shot of Cassie for the song "End of the Line." But, it seems like literally no one realized he had posted it until today, when fans started to share it and outlets began to pick it up. For this reason, it is unclear if this is the song's official music video or just a creative clip shot by Thrilliam.

As voted by CassieArmy, the video appears to be from the singer's Clam Magazine shoot. Watch below.
