American rapper Mase’s ‘Welcome Back‘ was the song playing at the end of the season finale of Mythic Quest this week — Mythic Quest, Season 3, Episode 10, “Buffalo Chicken Pizza” — as Ian and Poppy make the announcement that they are “coming back to Mythic Quest”.
Mase’s feel-good ‘Welcome Back‘ is the title track from the rapper’s third studio album, which was released in August, 2004 on both the Bad Boy and Universal record labels.
The album was a hit for Mase in the U.S., where it rocketed to #3 on the Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart, and to #4 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Welcome Back also charted high up charts in Canada, France, Australia, New Zealand, Germany and Switzerland. It went on to be certified Gold in the United States.
Mase’s Welcome Back album is also the last full-length release the rapper released, meaning it has been almost 20 years since we got a slew of cool rap from the talented musician.
A crying shame, as all three of his albums were massively successful, and much of his music is superb.
Mase has released several singles in the last couple of years though — both solo releases and collabs with other artists — which did get fans excited about a possible coming fourth solo album.
Now it appears 2023 could be a more exciting year if you are a fan of Mase and his songs, as he recently announced he had signed with Deathrow Records after Snoop Dogg bought the record label.
Let’s hope that means the long-awaited fourth album is on its way soon, eh?
Listen to Mase’s ‘Welcome Back‘ from last night’s finale of Mythic Quest on his album of the same name, and in his feel-good music video.
