Shia LaBeouf Bodies ‘Five Fingers of Death’ Freestyle
Shia LaBeouf stops by Sway in the Morning and absolutely rips a "Five Fingers of Death" freestyle, spitting crazy bars over beats from Missy Elliot, Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg and The Notorious B.I.G.
The big-screen star opens his freestyle by spitting, "Get ready, get set, this a meme/This is wild, this a childhood dream/I'm that guy, though/All pride, yo." He continues, "1Oak, that's a dumb club/I don't go there, but I get dumb love/Legend bitch, trash you heard, that's all alleged bitch/Plagiarists stay makin' shit/Greatest gifts come from painful shit/Truth is? I'mma true G/Only white kid with Big in a Coogi tatted to me/And Tupac too, and Missy on my two knees/Dude, please askin' bout my tats like a groupie/Whenever the truth's required, I'm hired/I'm the go-to guy for fire."
He continues, "Eat right, stay kosher/Shirt folder, good kid, slow roller like a hurt bowler/God damn I'm here, you're nowhere/You're poser/I'm poster/You're no sir/I'm closer/To toaster/I'm solar/You're nervous/I'm not sir, I'm rockstar/You're novice/I'm on this/I'm Costner, I'm Kevin/You're second to a monster."
Things start to really heat up around the 3:30-mark of the video, and LaBeouf brings that fire all the way until the 5:30-mark. Afterward, Sway declares Shia the "number one MC in Hollywood."
This isn't the first time we've heard Shia body a freestyle. Last year, LaBeouf rapped in South Dakota, dropping references to potatoes, astronomer Galileo Galilei, the movie franchise Transformers and Tupac Shakur.
