Free Advice From 2 Chainz: When the Guns Come Out, Run

Categories: 2 Chainz, Q&A

Word up. So last time we spoke you were telling me about some of the things you've done for the hood without the help of non-profits--just solo out of your own pocket. What's the most recent thing you've done like that?
Well not that it's anybody's business really, but I paid for a funeral that I couldn't even go to because of my schedule. And it's not my family. But sometimes you have to do things like that.

Sorry to hear that.
Me too, bruh, me too. You got to understand that we came up around some people that don't see success. You got to handle certain things for them because you are the success story. It's just one of the things that come with success and really I can't complain.

Robberies also come with fame and money sometimes too. You caught some heat for running from those gun men in that video, but any one from the hood knows there's no arguing with a gun. You should quit the scene ASAP.
Let me tell you something. Anybody that tells you they wouldn't run hasn't been in situations like me. I've been a felon since I was 15. Most kids at that age might still be sleeping in the same bed with their siblings. I'm trying to grow to be a wiser person. If you heard shots in Manhattan, Pablo, what would you do?

Exactly. But you know I learned from the experience and like I said I'm striving to be a wiser person.

So what's next for you?
T.R.U. University label is my focus. Have some projects coming out on that. I'm just looking to be competitive. I got that sports edge on these fools. I eat well, get my cardio in. I want it all! I'm amicable with people, but I want everybody up outta here. I want it all!
