Shia LaBeouf Calls Out Drake, Lil Yachty and Hot 97 in New Freestyle
Shia LaBeouf is back with more bars, setting Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg, Lil Yachty and Drake to a lesser degree in his crosshairs with a new freestyle provided to The Breakfast Club.
Last month, LaBeouf appeared on Sway in the Morning, freestyling for the show's "Five Fingers of Death" segment. His bars prompted Peter Rosenberg to issue a rapped statement of his own. The Hot 97 DJ was feeling a certain way that Shia neglected to reach out, rapping, “Shia LaBeouf, you gotta face facts/You only started rapping ‘cause your film career is wack."
Well, now it's officially on, as Shia comes guns blazing for Rosenberg's head. "First lame’s first/Rosenberg’s the oldest turd/He knows he’s dirt," he raps, taking shots at Hot 97 as a station. He calls Rosenberg, "Faker than Drake’s Jamaican accent/Old as fuck dog, you’re past tense/Stagnant, sure don’t miss you when you’re absent/You’re lackin/To Sway and Charlamagne, you’re a fraction."
From there, he turns to Lil Yachty, who has his own beef with Hot 97, making this a strange triangle of malcontent. "Not a Nautica boy, I own myself/This whole thing’s a bit absurd but on my word/Is Boat about to get this work/You spit that dirt," he raps. Shia later adds, "Bitch, I’m fuckin on fire/You, unaccompanied minor."
The punchlines here are vicious, Shia rapping, "Him and Soulja on that shout out shit/This is not, this a murder, this is tragedy man/He’s like Lil Romeo meets Raggedy Ann" and then calling him the Kwame Brown of rap.
Listen to the freestyle in full up above, with Shia's gripe seemingly relating to Yachty's lack of knowledge or care for the work and history of The Notorious B.I.G., whom Shia has tatted on his leg.
