2 Chainz gushed about a phone call from hip hop veteran Ma$e and the advice the former Bad Boy Records star gave 2 Chainz about his burgeoning hip hop career. Ma$e reportedly passed on some words that he himself and learned from the late Notorious B.I.G.
"A legend hit me the other day," Chainz said in an interview with radio host Big Boy. "This my first time putting it in an interview. But Ma$e hit me the other day and told me he was a fan of my music, dog. And then he told me something that Biggie said and I felt like Biggie told it to me. ... Biggie told Ma$e at the time they was popping, whatever, he said, 'Get it while you can and can it when you get it.' And I was like, it felt like Biggie had told me. That phone call just meant so much. Stuff like that lets me know I'm covering ground."
