By now I’m sure you have all seen the video of Shia Labouf Freestyle rapping. Well, you might of all been tricked. It seems as if someone has spotted a whole in his lyrics. Yahoo new seemed to had a lot to say about Shia’s plagiarized lyrics. “Turns out all of shia freestyle rhymes might not be original” says Yahoo News in a recent story put out about Shia’s “Freestyle” Rap. Freestyle being in quotes due to the fact that not all of Shia lyrics were actually his own.
Yahoo News wrote, “While it is certainly entertaining, it turns out that not all of Shia’s rhymes are original.
One line raised some hackles: “The rare commodity, the quality is what it’s gotta be, and my philosophy is farther than what your eyes can see.”
According to Pri the Honeydark of the group Anomalies, Shia ripped that line from her group’s 1999 song “Perfectionist.”
“You can’t rip songs from my Anomalies crew, recite them in freestyle as your own, then not expect to be called out by ACTUAL MCs!… This is straight disrespect to lyricism,” she wrote on Instagram.
Tsk tsk, Shia. Don’t you know plagiarizing is a no-no?”
Here is the video of Shia Labouf Freestyle Rapping Plagiarized & Original Rhymes. Skip to 2:22 to hear the exact part he steals.
Check out the video below to hear the exact life Shia Labouf Plagiarized. Skip to 0:50 seconds to hear the exact part.
In the video you see Shia throwing up gang signs, comparing himself to pac, claiming that he is “cuzzed out” (meaning accossiated with a L.A. gang known as the “Crips” that refer to themselves and members as “cuz” or “cousin”) and also refers to himself as being a “Jew”. Not sure if Shia is actually affiliated with the crips or not but its safe to say he should be careful throwing up gang signs anywhere near Los Angeles, California. Looks like he was rapping somewhere out in the country for this video, so it is safe to say he might be OK for now.
Not all of Shia Labouf rhymes were original but he does come up with some pretty original lyrics that don’t sound to bad “eating any rapper like im eating tuna casserole” that line was pretty hot!!
