MGK explains the story behind the making of the song "Invincible," which he was against doing at first.
"I don’t operate like that," he said on making "Invincible," "You weren’t there making the song with each other in the studio. It was presented to you. I write all my hooks…So when I got this hook I was offended. You guys think I’m a cookie cutter artist. I don’t work like that. And I’ve never talked to Ester Dean in my life. I’ve never talked to the producer who’s Alex Da Kid who makes those cookie cutter records."
Eventually he was asked to record a second verse, and after that he assumed it was over with. Kelly said he didn't want anything to do with the song and would not make a video for it. Months later though, he was asked by the producer, Alex Da Kid, to re-record his verse, because the producer hated the first one. Although MGK was angry at first and stormed out of the studio, when he realized people were getting fired over it, and he thought about his friends and kids, he had a change of heart.
"You have to do this. You have, have to, have to, have to. Like people are getting fired. And people really were getting fired over it," MGK explained. "Cause they’re like, ‘You can’t make this petty new artist on our label go do a song? And this is the boss asking for it."
Kelly said of re-doing the second verse, "I took all my anger out in that second verse, if you listen to that second verse that's one of the best verses I've heard in my life."
