Shia LaBeouf came to fame at an early age as the irritable title character of Even Stevens but rather quickly he fell from grace and became the walking epitome of a child actor gone rogue.
From wearing a paper bag on his head, to watching everyone of his movies back to back, to taking calls in a call centre, to spending 24 hours a lift – I think it’s only fair to say that LaBeouf is an interesting character at least…
However love him or loathe him, one thing that’s utterly undeniable is that LaBeouf just fucking aced Sway’s, Five Fingers Of Death Challenge by obliterating five minutes of freestyle rapping to beats from Tupac, Biggie, and Missy, reports Complex.
LaBeouf began with:
Get ready, get set, this a meme. This is wild, this is a childhood dream. I’m that guy tho. All pride yo. Plagiarist, stay making shit. Greatest gifts come from painful shit.
As you can probably imagine the clip has since gone viral with thousands of people praising the shit out of LaBeouf for his freestyle skills.

Besides working on his hip-hop career, Shia has just finished filming American Honey, which many are calling his greatest performance yet.
The On The Road-esque film follows the story of a teenage girl who hits the road with a group of wild magazine salesmen in the MidWest – one of which is Shia.
But he doesn’t want to be up for an Oscar. ‘That shit’s a curse’, he said.
