Although 2 Chainz had quite a hectic schedule prior to the release of his second studio album, he still made time to visit Pimp C’s mother, Mama C before her passing. Detailing that he made it to the hospital the actual day of her calling, he tells that she was a very influential figure in his life and her loss was a tragic moment for the hip-hop community.

Mentioning both his dad and Mama C, Chainz tells that both helped guide him as a adolescent in the game. Adding that although he only met her son Pimp C one time, he maintained a very close relationship with her and her family.
