He also said that he is smart enough to not endanger the life of his child and others for views on social media.

“I am out of town and that video is clearly in Atlanta,” Young Thug wrote. “I am a very safe man, especially when it comes down to my kids. I am very smart, last thing I’m looking for is clout/fame, I have both. Plus [my daughter] wouldn’t dare even ask me could she drive a car… You people must get smart then you are to think I’m anywhere near such a thing,” Young Thug continued in his statement obtained by TMZ.

The rapper recently received a myriad of criticism after the video surfaced on social media.

“I’m almost sure DFCS is gonna see this,” wrote singer and actor Tyrese in the comments of the video, which was shared by The Shade Room.

Young Thug’s daughter’s mother was with the rapper’s daughter while she struggled to drive the Lincoln.
