Shia LaBeouf Directed Kid Cudi’s Music Video 


Actor and “Transformers” star Shia LaBeouf is speaking out on his connection to Kid Cudi and confirming that he was the director of his last music video.

As previously reported, the now sober rapper released his video for “Marijuana” off his Man On The Moon 2 album earlier this month.

Unbeknownst to many however, the visual was created by the ‘Transformers’ star himself.

Speaking on their connection he tells MTV that they met through a mutual friend when he was enlisted to make a visual for a separate project.

“[Cage] is one of my good friends. Cage, Chris Palko, and I had been trying to make a movie about him for a while…Cudi hit [Cage] up and did a song with him. Cage sent me the song, called ‘Maniac,’ so initially, we started prepping this video, which is really like a short horror movie that I made that comes out on Halloween. […] In the interim, while we were finishing up the effects on it, [Cudi] told me he was going to Amsterdam for the Cannabis Cup…And to do that with Cudi when he’s a judge, and I get to roll with him with my 8mm camera [like] an ‘Easy Rider’ documentarian, I felt like Cameron Crowe or something.”
