Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Ma$e
Title: Shut the City Down
Label: Bad Boy (allegedly)

Good luck trying to figure out what's up with Murda Mase a.k.a. Ma$e a.k.a. Pastor Mason Betha a.k.a I'm just gonna stop right there. Five years ago he was Welcomed Back to hip-hop on his old label Bad Boy. A few years ago he collaborated with G-Unit for a mixtape. Now heads are saying that Diddy is going to bring him into the fold again, although on this new track he namechecks his former Unit: "'Bout my Banks, go ask Lloyd, I'm everything you asked for." If you believe TMZ he's been seen meeting with Sean Combs recently, but whatever, I'm less interested in who he signed with than what idiot did the beat. For God's sake, pun definitely intended, simply looping Beethoven's 5th ad nauseum doesn't a good song make. Ma$e is all over the map on this one and I'm not sure what he's trying to get at, even saying Jay-Z tried to knock him in his "Hard Knock" days. If he's serious that's dumb, and if it's analogy that's even stupider. Ma$e needs to remember it's 2009, he's not shutting anything down these days. The only thing this knocks is double wood.
