But first watch to find out if Kanye is working on new music!
In a new interview with Esquire, the 31-year-old actor talked about his bizarre relationship with the rapper. In an outtake from his 2016 song “No More Parties in L.A.” Kanye gave Shia a shout out, rapping, “I wish I dressed as fresh as Shia LaBeouf.”
Shortly after, Kanye went to Shia’s house to talk about a potential art collaboration, and Kanye asked if he could use some of his clothes for a pop-up shop installation, to which Shia obliged since Kanye had been very nice to his mom backstage at a recent concert.
But things took a turn for the worse later that year. “Me and him haven’t really been in contact since he blew up onstage and, you know, s*** on me,” Shia revealed.
During a performance, Yeezy went on a rant and called Shia out, saying, “Shia LaBeouf: Kid Cudi feels a way. Call him.” Shia directed a music video for Cudi in 2011, but still, it’s unclear what Kanye meant.
Still, Shia says he has tried reaching out to Kanye and is concerned for him. “I f*cking love Kanye West. He’s going through a lot. And I don’t know where he’s at or what he’s doing.”
