Yea, the One He Had No Idea About

Young Thug has been widely regarded as a bit of a space cadet. When he found out he had won one of MTV’s coveted moonman trophies the day after the awards, it was news to him. While there was plenty to talk about after Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, one of the best stories to emerge was the fact that Young Thug won an award for his video “Wyclef Jean” and didn’t realize it until the next day. Makes sense, he wasn’t really all there for the video shoot either…

In case you’re unfamiliar with the video, it was basically a dumpster fire of a video shoot that was brilliantly edited into a final product by Director Ryan Staake and production company Pomp & Clout. The funniest part about the video is the fact that Young Thug had virtually nothing to do with it despite the $100,000 production price tag.

Word finally got back to Thugger a few days later though and he’s finally given his acceptance speech… sort of.
