Where Are They Now? Underrated Neo Soul/R&B Crooners We Loved Who Fell Off (But Shouldn’t Have)

I used to love me some Mase. Not because he was gorgeous or anything like that, but his voice was so different that it was beautiful! He started gaining fame after “Touch Me, Tease Me” in ’96 and followed that success up into the early new Millennium with hits like, “Happily Ever After” with Beyoncé as his love interest in the video, “Faded Pictures,” and “Missing You.” And don’t forget about his appearance on Ja Rule’s massive hit, “Livin’ It Up.” But around 2001, musically, things slowed down and he was involved in a horrific accident. While handling his cousin’s handgun it accidentally discharged and shot him in the neck, but was able to miss his spine and vocal chords. With the exception of a lot of pain, a hole and some bandages, he walked away okay. But by 2009, he was back trying to release the album The Rose Experience, and his fifth studio album, Here, My Love, which had moderate success. He’s doing his indie label thing and is touring. Whether you see him around like that or not, he’s back!
