Shia Lebouf straight stole bars from the song "Perfectionist", written, recorded and performed by my ANOMOLIES crew members @invincibledet and @helixxwashere in 1999! Over a DECADE ago! We are battle MCs! Step into the arena! This is straight disrespect to lyricism. #shialabeouf #DopeRhymeTaker #MCsActLikeTheyDontKnow #RappersAreInDanger #HipHop101 #Emcee #MC #Lyricist #HipHop #SpiderMan #YourFreestyleAintFree #MySpidySensesAreTingling #WeBattleMCs #anomoliesrepresentitive
Shia LaBeouf Accused of Plagiarizing (Again) on Viral "Freestyle"
Shia LaBeouf, noted artistÃ©, Transformers actor and useful Chrome extension, can probably add "serial plagiarist" to his CV at this point, as he's (once again) been accused of plagiarizing a prominent underground rap crew in his newly-surfaced freestyle.
Incomprehensible and painfully awkward for the entire video's duration, MC Beouf compares himself to Tupac, all while throwing down odd tuna casserole-centric insults and um, tying in a reference to Galileo with potatoes (???). However, what we're mostly interested is why LaBeouf just can't come up with any original art -- especially as these new (and pretty founded) accusations come after last year's blow-up with comic artist Daniel Clowes, his string of blatantly copy-pasted apologies (from King Guwop, no less) and his whole Thomas Pychon paper bag "art" thing.
