Drake makes a cameo in Young Thug's new music video

Canadian singer and rapper Drake, who is currently on his ‘It’s All A Blur’ tour with 21 Savage, has made a surprise cameo in Young Thug’s latest music video for ‘Oh U Went’. The track was released as the lead single for the YSL artist’s most recent project, Business Is Business and featured a guest verse from Drake. 

Produced by Metro Boomin, FnZ and BoogzDaBeast, ‘Oh U Went’ debuted at number 19 on the Billboard Hot 100 but remains a fan favourite. The song was released last month. However, Thug was behind bars on racketeering charges when it hit the charts.

The rollout for Thug’s Business Is Business took place in his absence, and the Atlanta artist has been behind bars since May 9th of last year. A Fulton County Judge denied bail for the rapper on several occasions, which has aggravated his loyal followers. 

Last year the Atlanta icon’s attorney released a statement reading, “It has been too long to leave a human being in custody without trial, without discovery, without the statutory right to a speedy trial and without bond.” However, the emcee continues to release music and visuals from behind bars.

Fortunately for the YSL founder (real name Jeffrey Williams), Drake was happy to fill in for him concerning the single’s visuals. The music video for ‘Oh U Went’ sees a slew of African-Americans in Atlanta mouthing Thug’s lyrics while doing various activities, including driving Rolls Royce’s and playing dice.

The video, directed by Nick Manterola and Garfield Larmond Jr., delivers a grainy and retro feel. Drake’s verse is watched in black and white on a projector by children and sees the Toronto native rap with a large group of people behind him.

Williams’s case is still ongoing, with the court selecting a jury. Jury selection is expected to go all the way into August, which would make 15 months in jail for Williams and the 13 other trial-standing defendants. You can watch the video for ‘Oh U Went’ below.
