Rapper 2 Chainz has definitely had a profound effect on the music industry since becoming an independent artist. His debut album "Based On A T.R.U. Story" recently landed at the number spot on the charts and his buzz continues to grow. But before the Atlanta native came upon this success, he was still finding his way. During a recent interview, he explained that MTV once edited him out a performance with Lil Wayne and spoke on how he used it to his advantage.
"The homie [Lil Wayne] invited me for Unplugged. [At the time,] everything was happening in the South. It wasn't making it anywhere else so this was a look that I needed. This was another look. All the stars are lining up. Then I tell everybody like I shouldn't have. And then they edit my ass slap out of it. No 2 Chainz!"
While this may have been an embarrassing moment for 2 Chainz, he explained how he used that to keep grinding in the industry.
"Sway actually sent me the footage of when I came out and the people, the reception I got. Even though the world didn't see it, it was something cool for me to have. It was cool for me to see how Wayne introduced me as one of his best people in the game. And it made me more hungry. It made me be like, 'Okay, MTV! I'm finna turn up on your mawf*****' ass.' And that's what I did."
