Rapper MASE said he almost knocked J.COLE out! Read below for what he said...

"Rapper Mase recently shared that he thought about punching J Cole after the rapper took a few shots at him in his lyrics. Mase told a Detroit radio station, "I like J. Cole too when he's not taking shots at me . . . I saw him one day, I was going to hit him but I was too grown to be knocking light-skinned people out. But I really like him as an artist. When I saw him I was like, 'Oh he a kid, he don't get it."

In case you kids don't know who Mase is - check out the video below. lol
