Fine, Let’s Talk About Shia LaBeouf’s Goddamn Freestyle Rap

Over the weekend, a video of Shia LaBeouf rapping went viral. If you’re exactly 2:37 seconds away from killing yourself, go ahead and watch it below. If not, by all means, just take my word that it was justifiably sick, as indicated by the way the arbiters of true hip-hop — white teens tubing at a creek — crowded around him with delight. The glory would be short lived, however, when Pri the Honydark of The Anomolies would point out what everyone already knew was coming. Someone else’s words came out of Shia’s non-crediting, douche-bearded, fake rat-tail wearing head. Via Entertainment Weekly:

“You can’t rip songs from my ANOMOLIES crew, recite them in a freestyle as your own, get credit for it, then not expect to be called out by ACTUAL MCs!” Pri the Honydark, Anomolies’ self-described representative.

No surprise there at all, but I can say that I’ve at least learned it’s possible for me to respect someone who calls herself Pri the Honydark. Prior to her calling out The Beef, I would probably say “Tell April to shut the fuck up about her rapping and put down more fries, the alarm’s been going off for five minutes already.” And not that I needed one at all, but Shia crop-dusting the rap game gives me all the reason I need to embed more Kevin Gates Instagrams below, because for every ounce of bullshit artifice Shia uses to mask his self-loathing, Kevin Gates matches it with a metric ton of way too honest.
