Last month Shia LaBeouf showed off his freestyle rapping skills during SiriusXM Shade 45’s “Sway in the Morning.” Now the actor is back with a new rap, a response to a feud that began with Soulja Boy. The rapper tried to ban Shia from Atlanta and told him to “stick to acting” after Shia called him out on his previous track “Zapruder,” released last week on the New York radio show “The Breakfast Club.”

Then on Monday (December 5), LaBeouf released a quick response in which he talks about the feud and also declares that he’ll make a point to visit Atlanta “when [his] schedule is flexible.” In getting his point across, Shia compares himself to Marlon Brando and Stanley Kubrick, as well as notes his latest film role in the biopic “Borg/McEnroe.”

“I just finished playing tennis like I’m John McEnroe,” he raps. “Compare me to Brando, Eminem, pen to pen, I’m better than him and him.”

According to LaBeouf this new freestyle is his “last one,” but we’ll see if the rapping feud continues and more tracks are on the way. 

The 30-year-old actor was last seen in the critically acclaimed drama “American Honey” and “Man Down.” He’ll next portray John McEnroe in the biopic “Borg/McEnroe.”
