Young Thug was absent for the entirety of his “Wyclef Jean” video shoot, but that didn’t stop director Ryan Staake from creating a fuckin’ masterpiece. The highly entertaining and quickly viral video is equipped with a heavy budget, despite the Atlanta rapper’s lack of appearance.
On Sunday night, MTV held the Video Music Awards in Los Angeles and awarded Thugger’s valiant effort (or lack thereof) with a moon man for Best Editing. Less than a day later, Thug took to Twitter to voice his opinions on the high honor by saying:
So no one was going to tell me that I won an award??
