Chainz also revealed his thoughts on the tension between national security and privacy:
“It’s not a secret what our country is doing to try to keep us safe. You know, some people think it’s being nosy. At the same time, for me, I try to educate people in an entertaining way without boring them. They can watch the news. I just try to — they might dance and party to some of my music but it still may have an underlying meaning or substance.”
But the best moment came when 2 Chainz revealed the secrets his behind his culinary masterpieces, including his special “Me Time” sauce. Be sure to watch the full clip.
