In case you didn’t know Shia LaBeouf can rap. No, it’s true. The “American Honey” actor surprised people at SiriusXM Shade 45’s “Sway in the Morning” when he freestyle rapped during the show’s “Five Fingers of Death” segment.

The challenge determines an individual’s freestyling abilities over five different beats and surprisingly, LaBeouf impressed everyone with his performance.

In the video below, the actor is heard rapping about his Missy Elliott tattoos and Dr. Dre. He also calls himself the Einstein of rhyming and the “Jewish Pac to this music with a twist of Whitman.” At the end of his rap, host Sway Calloway gets pumped up and yells, “Did you see that? This is what we’ve been talking about.”

LaBeouf was previously heard rapping in a 2015 viral video, though he was later accused of plagiarizing the verses.

The 30-year-old actor was last seen on screen as Jake in the critically acclaimed drama “American Honey.” He’ll next star opposite Kate Mara in “Man Down,” out December 2, and will portray tennis champ John McEnroe in the biopic “Borg/McEnroe.”
