Watch out, Bumble Bee! Shia LaBeouf totally slammed the ‘Transformers’ franchise while freestyle rapping for a group of fans. Click inside to watch the bizarre video!
Shia LaBeouf, 29, definitely knows how to make waves. Although it’s unclear when or even where this wild video of him rapping came from, you have to watch as the group of young people throw words at the actor to inspire his nearly three minute long freestyle session. And yes, of course someone suggested Bumble Bee — but it didn’t go over well!
A Facebook video of Shia LaBeouf rapping while surrounded by a group of people has gone viral, and it’s incredible. The actor is shirtless in the video, and his lengthy rattail can be seen hanging over his bare shoulder as he spits rhymes out of nowhere. The crowd around him consists of pretty young faces, likely local teenagers and children from wherever the video was taken. Shia seems to be loving the attention they give him, too, which is pretty rare for the actor who once declared himself “not famous.”
Around the 1:07 mark one of the young men around him says “Bumble Bee” as a suggestion for his next verse, and Shia immediately responds. “Nah, ain’t none of that. ‘Transformers’ is the dummy rap,” Shia spits, his hand gesturing that the franchise is in his past. Surprisingly, the crowd around him went wild with excitement when the actor dismissed the film that made him a household name. Let’s hope Michael Bay isn’t watching!
You can’t hear much of what Shia says after the diss, but right before the video cuts out he raps, “Now I’m on some new shit.” The good news? He’s telling the truth. According to his IMDb page, Shia has at least two films on the way including American Honey, the movie that recently put him in the hospital after a stunt gone wrong.
