We all knew that Shia LaBeouf was a huge hip hop fan after he showed off his tattoos of rappers on Ellen, but I don’t think anybody knew that he had bars for days. On Sway in the Morning, Shia shocked the world by dominating his “5 Fingers of Death” freestyle. Watch Shia rip it in the video below. Unless you dig Oswin Benjamin, feel free to end the video at the 7:30 mark.
Goddamn! All the fire emojis, sirens, and Funk Flex bombs in the world! Dylan might need to reevaluate his top five rankings after that freestyle.
I didn’t see that coming at all. I was fully prepared for Shia to awkwardly mumble his way through some half-assed rhymes, but he wasn’t there to mess around. He had a ton of quality punchlines, and I was dying when he name-dropped the MTV News GOAT Kurt Loder.
He also knows how to end a freestyle with flair. What a performer.
