Shia LaBeouf made it clear that he’s got an affinity for hip hop when he revealed several new tattoos of iconic rappers. Now, the actor is putting his money where his mouth is. During Shia’s new interview on “Sway’s Universe,” host Sway Calloway challenged Shia to his “Five Fingers Of Death” segment, giving Shia a chance to freestyle rap over the beats of some of his favorite rappers.
The freestyle went on for about five minutes as Shia transitioned over changing backtracks, barely missing a beat. He rapped about some of the most famous parts of his own story and talked some serious smack about other rappers in the process. Maybe the most shocking development of all is that Shia actually got a ton of love in the YouTube comments.
The rap was just part of a much longer interview Shia did on his history with hip hop. He explained how he got into the genre as a young kid in L.A. and what he’s paid attention to as a fan. He also talked about his dad and his married life.
Check out the video of Shia’s rap below, plus the entire extended 45-minute interview.
