Watch Shia LaBeouf Freestyle Rap Because He Is a True Artist

The blockbuster actor is "so underground that the rap kids call him Tubman."

Shia LaBeouf has been keeping himself busy ever since he began his transformation from teen star to derelict wildling. He's dabbled in performance art and motivational speaking, and has even decided to start doing his own stunts in movies with mixed results. Now, the tireless creator has made his rap debut in the form of a shaky iPhone video. In it, Shia stumbles through a two-minute freestyle while a bunch of almost-definitely-stoned onlookers bob to his awkward flow and stare at their feet.

It's comforting to know that, while you are grinding away on your work computer, a shirtless Shia LaBeouf is out there in the world somewhere, probably gobbling down fistfuls of mushrooms and rapping about how he's "so underground that the rap kids call him Tubman." The man cannot be tamed.
