Shia LaBeouf On Directing Kid Cudi Video

[vodpod id=Video.11640593&w=540&h=350&fv=]

A few weeks back, Kid Cudi released his new video directed by actor, Shia LaBeouf. During a press run for Transformers 3, Shia explains how the clip came together.

“[Cage] is one of my good friends. Cage, Chris Palko, and I had been trying to make a movie about him for a while,” LaBeouf explained. “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,” he said. “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.”

    ok the comments above cant even be taken seriously, same 2 dudes rush to get 1st comment just to bash an artist. different day same shit.

    cudi making friends that can get him in all the right places. hip-hop money isnt like movie or tv money. waiting on season 2 of how to make it in america cudi had some good scenes in there.

    shia is a real down to earth dude judging from all his interviews ive seen. lookign fwrd to his and cudi’s future projects and i hope they work together more!

    Shia is cool in my book. Real down to earth dude. DOn’t really listen to Cudi so I can’t comment.

    Transformers storyline may have been lame to true fans but it looked great.

    The comment boards have killed HIPHOP. No one can have a constructive conversation without gettin hostile with one another. Grow up

  • Belize

    @dll32: How is that ignorant?; It’s true n the facts are right.

    Video will prolly be lame as hell.

  • MUZIK

    ya niggas even hating on a movie. smh. i like shia he coo as hell n he a good ass actor. that transformers movie bad ass too if u actually take the time to understand it. instead of just watching it pay attention to it.
    smh for all ya clows n respect for the real ones

  • Word

    You guys really didnt like Transformers? I enjoyed them, looking forward to the 3rd one too. Shia one of my favorite young actors. All his recent movies? Smash hits. Cant deny his resume. Disturbia, Eagle eye, Wall Street, Transformers 1 and 2, How to be a Saint, etc etc etc

  • Ice Cold

    ^^^ cosign, and even his old tv show even stevens

  • Let me talk to someone who actually knows hip hop

    I dont know why I even read these comments anymore, all everyone does is hate… It just amazes me how people make it their job to hate and say stupid shit like that. Like grow the hell up appreciate different kinds of cultures, rather than just your own taste in music and movies

  • BK James

    Y’all talking about how lame Shia is or how Cudi sucks, you’re missing the main man in this equation: Cage. Without Cage Cudi and Shia never would have met.

    Cage>Jay-Z>Cudi>Your Favorite Rapper (Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Eminem)
