A Young Thug Fictional Biopic Debuts Next Week In France

By HHL Editors

Young Thug is a pretty big deal in France.

Why not? He's doing quite well over here, and we can't understand what he's saying either.

One French fan, Pierre Gaignard, has taken his Thug love to the next level by creating a fictional biopic for the polarizing rapper.

The  movie -- titled Thug Roi -- will premiere at Paris’ Galerie Eric Mouchet on February 23.

You can check out the trailer here.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Gaignard said he created Thug Roi as a "message in a bottle"

Although Gaignard has never met Thug, he feels like he knows him from following his social media.

"I talked to him without answering," he told Rolling Stone. "It was very strange. He offered so many things about his private life that I felt like I was a part of it. I wasn't a fan, but part of his family. He made me discover Atlanta. I never physically went there, but at the end of the project, I was capable of walking alone in the city. I even knew the right exit on the motorway to find Cleveland Avenue."
