Drake Stars In Young Thug Video: Look + Listen

For the duo’s collaboration from the rapper’s current LP, Business Is Business, Drake stars in the new music video for Young Thug’s “Oh U Went.”

Directed by Nick Manterola and Garfield Larmond, Jr., the video reflects slice-of-life moments filmed around Atlanta and Memphis, with various people singing along with Young Thug’s lyrics. And halfway in, the clip features Drake, who raps his verse during an outdoor party. 

As the rapper (born Jeffery Lamar Williams) remains incarcerated, awaiting trial on state racketeering charges, Young Thug does not appear in the video. The musician was one of 28 people arrested in May 2021 as part of a massive RICO Act indictment. Though jury selection for the high profile YSL gang case began in January, proceedings have since moved slowly with jury selection possibly concluding in August.

Amidst his incarceration, Young Thug released Business Is Business in June, marking his first LP since 2021’s Punk. Along with Drake (who also appears on album opener “Parade on Cleveland”), the full length features appearances from Future, 21 Savage, Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert, and more. 

Business Is Business notably dropped one week after A Gift and a Curse, the first album from Gunna since he was also arrested as part of the YSL gang case. Last December, Gunna took a “best-interest plea,” whereby he maintained his innocence while accepting a plea and the repercussion of a guilty verdict. While Gunna neither cooperated with the prosecution, nor testified against any co-defendants, his plea did include an under-oath admission that YSL is a gang. Gunna has subsequently faced backlash from several high-profile figures in the rap world.
