Nine days later, the guys linked up with Machine Gun Kelly to film his scenes. Unsure of what to expect from the budding superstar, Potoczak and Hardy couldn’t believe how easy the young MC was to work with.

”Probably the nicest guy you’ve ever met. Unbelievably nice and so genuinely excited to do it. He made a comment that being signed to Bad Boy was awesome, but it was nothing like having the hometown Cavs ask you to be in their video,” Hardy said.

”It’s one of those things where his reputation precedes him. So we had no idea what to expect. This dude could be throwing stuff at us. He could be really not into it. Complete opposite. Super excited. We did six takes of him doing it. We  were literally expecting to have a half hour maybe. He’s like, ’I got three hours, you guys do whatever,’” Potoczak added.

After completing the scenes with MGK, in which he would perform his single ”Invincible,” it was time to upload the footage and begin the editing process.
