A rundown of Young Thug's boldest and most unexpected stunts during his remarkable 2016.

Fingers crossed that Jeffery will drop on August 26, as Lyor Cohen has hinted, but at this point, we won't hold our breath. In the meantime, Thug has assuaged his fans with the release of "Elton," a collaboration with the great Wyclef Jean. The song will continue to be dissected for weeks to come, though upon initial listening, it seems that it acts as an ode to a lover as well as to Thug's newly unveiled persona, "Jeffery," which Wyclef softly repeats as Thug yaps "wet, wet" and other rhyming syllables on the hook. Earlier this year, Thug met the presumed namesake of his new song, and it was rumored that they had worked on a remix to "Rocket Man," the Elton John hit that happens to be referenced on "Elton." 

His new track is as mysterious, nonsensical, and ultimately, as intriguing as the personality that has allowed Young Thug to remain such an exciting figure for a few years now. His stardom still feels like it's just beginning, and that's because he's retained an enigmatic aura around his music and his celebrity. His influence in pop culture will continue to spread as fans and critics attempt to figure him out to no avail. His mastery of remaining unpredictable in and outside of his music has led to heightened scrutiny upon his every move. Here are 5 stunts he's pulled off this year that have helped make Thug bigger than ever in 2016. And we've barely just met Jeffery...
