Nothing makes sense anymore. Shia LaBeouf, the actor and man who enjoys hanging out in elevators and calling it art, can rap. More precisely, he has bars. The man can spit. In a year when barely anything makes sense, Shia LaBeouf turning out to be a great freestyle rapper is completely unexplainable.
I’ve showed this video to 10 different hip-hop heads, who have unanimously responded with “WTF, how?” so now I’m bringing it to you, the people. Is this real? (Shia does have a history of plagiarism, but this has all the hallmarks of a legit freestyle). And if it is real, I have some follow-up questions:
Are we real?
Is 2016 a mass hallucination? (And if so, why don’t we get any of the fun drug side-effects?)
Did someone spill a drink in the simulator?
I don’t know what to believe anymore. 2016 is the weirdest year ever and nothing you can say to me will change that.
