Aceto — the real technician. He’s a wonderful guy,” says Jacked. “Well, both are Chris. I’m working with Chris and Chris. Both of them are amazing people to start with. Amazing. It’s all business and not brotherly or intimacy or whatever.
“Even ‘Psycho’ I told him, ‘bro, I need a drill Sergeant, not a brother.’ And he’s like, he wanted the same too. We train and we go. There is no time for chit chat, smiling, whatever, no. We are in this for business and that’s exactly what I want. Aceto is doing his thing, and I’m like, ‘yeah, good, awesome.’”
