Lil Dicky told TIME, "It was me, my manager Scooter Braun and Benny Blanco, who is a true producer in every sense of the world and the reason this song happened. He is the guy that knows everybody."

"We’re all such competitive people that we all kept tabs on who got who. We all had our own relationships, and together, in a three-pronged attack, we got 30 artists."

He also shared that the most difficult person to convince to be in the video was Kanye West himself because he was "unreachable," so he reached out to Kevin Hart instead.

"There’s a part that I wrote for Kanye. I’m friendly with Kanye—I used to play basketball with him. But I left myself like three days to get Kanye on the phone and couldn’t get in touch with him. He was pretty unreachable; he changed his email and his cell phone. So I reached out to Kevin Hart and asked, “Would you play Kanye?” and he said yes."

As for actor, environmental activist, and vape enthusiast Leonardo DiCaprio — I'm pretty sure it didn't take too much convincing to get him involved.

In fact, foundation helped identify nonprofits dedicated to climate change solution such as the Quick Response Fund for Nature, the Shark Conservation Fund and the Carbon Cycle Institute.
