In a recent interview with Esquire, Shia LaBeouf spilled tea that has the internet soaking it all the way up. The somewhat fallen actor talks style and the time Kanye West, took all of his “fucking clothes.”
Maybe we should have taken a clue last year when Kanye was spotted wearing the same exact baseball cap that Shia was pictured in prior. Not just any regular Nike baseball cap, but a dirty, stained autographed cap. But we didn’t, so here’s the scoop. According to Shia, one time, Kanye met up with the actor at his LA house to discuss potential art collaborations but instead focused his energy on the clothing in LaBeouf’s closet. LaBeouf says Kanye asked if he could have some of his clothes for a pop-up shop and says he said to Kanye, “Go for it, my guy. Take everything you want.” As to what happened next, Kanye apparently took EVERYTHING. Perhaps that's why Kanye was spotted wearing the infamous baseball cap.
Well, word on the street is that Kanye has always been inspired by Shia’s style according to a statement gathered from an outtake of one of the rapper’s songs in which he spits, “I wish I dressed as fresh as Shia LaBeouf.” But now the internet is left wondering, is Shia the real inspo behind the Yeezy empire? Should Kanye be cutting the troubled Even Stevens star a check from Yeezy sales?
