Photos: Mase drops into the Blue Martini in Tampa for rare, if brief, performance
The house was packed for Mase's return to Tampa at the Blue Martini Sunday night, but I wouldn't consider it much of performance.
After spending about an hour in the VIP chatting it up with fans and other VIPs he hit the stage to say hello and sing his main verse from Been Around The World for a few seconds. Then, after talking to the crowd some more, he did a few seconds of Feel So Good, as cellphones were raised in the air to capture his rare Tampa visit.
Although it wasn't promoted as a "performance," I expected a bit more out of Mase's Tampa visit. Surprisingly, he did not even perform his newest single. He then said his goodbyes and left the stage. After hanging out again in the VIP for a about 15 minutes or so he left with his posse out the back door.
Either way, the crowd still loved seeing him, and overall the packed Blue Martini seemed to be happy with his brief appearance.
