Watch Young Thug’s Interesting “Wyclef Jean” Music Video

The ATL’s own, Young Thug has been making quite a bit of noise recently. While we have all seen his antics in the airport, today Young Thug is back with a brand new music video that comes with quite an intriguing backstory. Today we get a look at the video for his JEFFERY single “Wyclef Jean,” directed by Ryan Staake. The problem lies in the fact that Young Thug never made it to the shot, and never even met with the director at all.

After taking a description of what Young Thug had in his mind, directors pulled together a mansion party in the Hollywood Hills, an array of Power Wheels, and all sorts of interesting eye-candy. However, Thugger never made it onto the set for his shot, though he did serve up his own footage weeks later. Ryan had to make due with what he had, which is precisely the clip you see below; as well as a description throughout. Check out the interesting music video below and speak your thoughts on it after the jump. More from Young Thug coming soon.
