Mase says goodbye to El Elyon International.

Over the past several years, Mase has been focusing on his ministry and doing all he can to build up his two churches in Atlanta and Phoenix. Now, thousands of followers later, the “Nothing” rapper, is saying goodbye to the church for good.

TMZ, first broke the story, the rapper, who left the music industry back in 1999, came under fire earlier this year after he divorced his wife, Twyla Betha. Mase was known for his sermons on family values and how to keep a marriage alive … So many of his members left following the drama filled divorce.

According to reports, Mase has dropped ties with both churches all together and will focus on his music full time. The rapper, who is reportedly dating Basketball Wives LA star, Malaysia Pargo, will be performing at events around Los Angeles.

HipHollywood caught up with the former pastor during June’s BET weekend to talk about what fans can expect with the new music. “Expect more great music,” he tells us. “My next single will be with Rick Ross and Kanye called ‘Billboard.’ So I have a lot of good music coming out.”
The rapper also goes on to tell us why exactly he came back to the game. “I feel like I never really left. I did a lot of music behind the scenes working with people. So the music that is out right now, I have a lot of input in it.”

Reports: Chante Moore Accused Of Financing New Album With Stolen Money

Looks like Chante Moore has got some explaining to do!

The “Chante’s Got A Man” singer is being looped in a messy fraud and racketeering case that essentially led to two men claiming they were defrauded out of $3.6 million.

According to reports, the former “R&B Divas: LA” star knowingly accepted money that was fraudulently obtained by a criminal enterprise and using it to produce her latest album and artificially inflate her sales.

The two men are have filed a lawsuit and claim the defendants used some of their money to buy Moore plane tickets for her musical tour, lavish her with gifts, fund the production of and marketing campaign for her seventh album, “The Rise of the Phoenix,” and even to “pay off her significant personal debt.”

They also claim their money was used to open a hair bar in Georgia, and buy a house.

The plaintiffs say Moore knew the money was obtained illegally and the investments made into her career “were designed in whole or in part to conceal or disguise the nature, the location, the source, the ownership, and the control of the proceeds” of the alleged illegal activity.

It gets even messier though. The two men also claim the money was used to “artificially enhance” her album sales through iTunes purchases. Since they believe their money was used to “directly used to finance the launching of Moore’s latest resurgence effort with her new album, including all advertising and marketing efforts put forth therewith,” they believe they are entitled to any profits from the record.

If you’re wondering what Moore has to say about the situation, she is denying the allegations and wants the case thrown out.

Back in July we caught up with Moore who gushed about her new album and not feeling pressure to stay relevant in the changing music climate.
