Pro-social Content

On that hit (featuring P. Diddy), Mase mentions his salvation and lifestyle change. He overcomes urban snares and gives God the glory on “Gotta Survive” (“You don’t even know success until you know Him/And Him is Jesus. Jesus”). “Wasting My Time” promotes hard work and lists qualities of love. “I Wanna Go” and “The Love You Need” selflessly look out for women’s best interests. Isolated lines take pride in sobriety (“Welcome Back,” “I Owe”) and praise modest ladies who can party without shedding their clothes (“Keep It On”).

Objectionable Content

It smells like prosperity doctrine that correlates riches with God’s goodness and favor. Ten songs brag about possessions and well-endowed bank accounts.
