Shia LaBeouf seems to have done it all. From Hollywood, performance art, travelling the world and soft-core porn, the celebrity has a laundry list of done-that’s under his belt. Except for hip-hop. And Which is why Shia LaBeouf tried rapping.
Wherein some seemed to appreciate his style and lyricism and groove, more so after hearing the former Transformers actor freestyling during Sway in the Morning. Until he dissed other artists like Drake, Lil Yachty and Peter Rosenburg. And he did not just do it once.
In the video below, LaBeouf calls out Drake and Lil Yachty for “not writing their own rhymes.”
In another guesting with The Breakfast Club, LaBeouf continued his tirade against other rappers.
“He says things like ‘faker than Drake’s Jamaican accent,’” shared Esquire. “(He) tells Lil Yachty he’s ‘f******g on fire, you, unaccompanied minor,’ and calls Peter Rosenburg ‘the oldest turd, he knows he’s dirt.’”
Shia LaBeouf tried rapping, dissed Drake and Lil Yachty
Since then, LaBeouf has been criticized for his seemingly illogical leap (again) and for dissing some of the hip-hop world’s biggest names. Lil Yachty, obviously, was one of the first artists to respond to LaBeouf’s accusations.
“Stick to acting,” was the rapper’s response when asked what he wanted to tell LaBeouf. “He’s not worth it. He’s not important to me. I’m gonna tell you like this. It was a joke to me. It’s all a joke. I think he’s way too serious. You gotta relax.”
Yachty was also asked by TMZ if he plans on dissing LaBeouf to get back at him. But it seemed that the rapper could not care less about the actor.
“It’s done,” Yachty added. “I don’t have no beef with nobody.”
But could Shia LaBeouf be done with his disses? Hopefully, yes, as some think that he has no right being in the hip-hop scene.
“He has no business rapping, yet here he is,” claimed Esquire’s Matt Miller. “Hey, it’s 2016. if Donald Trump can be President, Shia LaBeouf can be a rapper. Nothing matters anymore.”
