In an interview with “Sway In The Morning,” Ma$e reflected on advice he says he learned from the late Notorious B.I.G.
On what he learned from Biggie, Ma$e said:
“I remember B.I.G. used to always tell me stuff. He used to give me jewels and one of the jewels I gave to 2 Chainz when we was talking that while you’re doing this you gotta do all you can and can everything you get because you not guaranteed to be loved next year. They lovin’ you now. I understood that. That’s what made me take advantage of doing something else.”
On what changed after Biggie was murdered:
“When Biggie passed, it changed my whole perspective for many reasons. It was the first time I saw – ah, man, I’m on a truth campaign. It was the first time I saw people that were supposed to be who they are not act like who they are. That’s the best way I could say that. Somebody that important, something happen to, and nobody respond?” … If you don’t rock for that, what you gon’ rock for? At that point, my focus became different. If ain’t nobody do nothing about this, I shouldn’t think something’s gon’ happen different for me. So, my decision became real easy.”
On Tupac Shakur:
“I believe I’m doing right now what Tupac envisioned to do but he never got around to doing because he wasn’t able to make that decision.”
