Shia LaBeouf Accused of Plagiarizing (Again) on Viral "Freestyle"

by Sandra Song
Shia LaBeouf, noted artisté, 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.
