The story of how Young Thug's music video for "Wyclef Jean" was made fulfills every stereotype of a rapper acting like a diva on set. The visuals for "Wyclef Jean" are a documentary, of sorts, featuring text narration explaining, in great detail, why the video you're watching is a complete disaster. The primary reason is Young Thug's refusal to, first, show up, and second, to appear in a shot upon his arrival because his Instagram got hacked.
Ryan Staake, the video's director and an ex-Apple designer, realized that things were never going to take form day of the shoot and instead cut the footage, interspersed with his own experience, to create a documentary-like video about waiting for Young Thug – something that seems pretty routine when dealing with the rapper.
The video's $100,000 budget did not go to waste, with kids smashing cop cars and a group of women riding mini cars, which makes for a pretty entertaining, funny, and unique music video. Watch it below.
