In anticipation of his upcoming album B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time (due September 10), 2 Chainz debuts his “24 Hours to Live” miniseries. In the first episode, cameras follow him to South Africa and L.A.
“I thought, what if I only had 24 hours to live?” he says. “‘Cause the thing is, you never know when it’s your last 24 hours.”
He reflects on his fame and fortune, while flashing back to meeting Jay-Z and Beyoncé at the NBA All-Star Game, attending the VMAs, BET Awards, Coachella, and ASCAP Awards.
“Of course I appreciate them, but I didn’t get a chance to absorb because the next day I had something to do,” says Chainz.
So he decided to stay about a week in South Africa and just “absorb some of the vibes.”
He also shares his thoughts on the Illuminati and its connection to hip-hop.
“What I always wanted to know was why Illuminati only catered to rappers,” ponders 2 Chainz. “Seems like it came out after Jay-Z became so successful. That shit don’t mean nothing. That means that God has pinpointed you to be successful and to be basically privileged. And for me, I grinded, I worked hard, I prayed for this.”
Follow him on his journey to enlightenment.
