Unless you’ve been living in a cave in Kandahar, you’ve probably heard Wale’s “Slight Work” remix by now. It features two workaholics who never turn down an opportunity to collaborate with fellow workaholics. Where on God’s green earth did they find Pastor Betha?

We’ll let M-A-Dollar-Sign-E explain how the collaboration came about.

“I was in Atlanta and then I just came through and they was just blowing so hard in the studio, smoking all loud,” Mase tells Flex. “I couldn’t even get my verse out, they kept laughing at me,” said the now 36-year-old MC. “I came back the next day and was like, ‘I’m ready now.’ He was like, you ready now? They threw me in the booth. Diddy got on it, everyone else got on it.”

As for his relationship with Diddy, the slow flow MC says the facts are exaggerated. “To this day, I tell people I don’t have no issues with him,” he said. “I think a lot of times we get put on the other side of each other, just because of history. He’s one of the biggest contributors who ever gave to the church. We’re probably cooler than I thought.”
