In his latest stab at being weird for the sake of being weird, ”Transformers” actor Shia LaBeouf recently appeared in a video, spitting a freestyle rap at a party (or just a field gathering, who could say), that has blown up all over the Internet and threatened to overshadow his (arguably inspirational) “Just Do It” motivational speech video.
Unfortunately, the “incendiary” freestyle appears to be at least partly compromised by his stealing lyrics from the Anomolies rap crew. Said member Pri the Honey Dark in a Twitter post pointing towards the original song:
Shia Labeouf ripped my crew ANOMOLIES’ song in his freestyle! This is the original: https://t.co/2epFU4stZq performed by my crew in 1999!— Pri the Honeydark (@prithehoneydark) June 28, 2015
Indeed, at the 0:45 mark of the song, you can hear Pri’s group member Helixx say ”I reckon you want more of that rare commodity/the quality is what it’s gotta be/ and my philosophy is much farther than what your eyes can see.” LaBeouf had a simialr punchilne at the 2:23 mark of his video, saying “The rare commodity, the quality is what it’s gotta be, and my philosophy is farther than what your eyes can see.”
Despite the attention paid here, Pri also posted a response to people who claimed she hated LaBeouf on her Instagram today:
