His rise to fame was one of rap's great success stories. He had millions of fans and the prospect of multi-millions of dollars. But just as Ma$e--as he was then called--was poised to sign a deal with Sean 'Puffy' Combs' famed Bad Boy Records, he walked away. This book is Mason Betha's powerful memoir about a miraculous transformation: his own--from the material-minded Ma$e to the pastor he has become. Here, Betha reveals the rhyme and reason behind his choice to trade in his sensational music career for a richer, more spiritual one. As founder of a nondenominational movement called S.A.N.E. (Saving a Nation Endangered) Ministries, Betha has traveled throughout the country to share his messages of peace and prosperity with today's youth. This book is his testament to the enduring power of faith, and to the limitless possibilities in a life transformed by God's guiding hand.
