Supa Dupa Fly: Shia LaBeouf Got Missy Elliott Inked On His Knee Caps

So you know it's real. 

It looks like Missy Elliott will forever walk with Shia LaBeouf, figuratively speaking that is. The actor got two matching tattoos on his knee caps of Misdemeanor after what he details, as spontaneous trip to the tattoo parlor.

Many speculated that the former Transformers star had a few screws loose, but this new stunt might be the tip on the scale. During Shia's interview with Variety, the actor made a point to mention almost accepting a role in the summer blockbuster, Suicide Squad, and how he wound up with Missy's face on his legs.

While shooting for his new film, American Honey, Shia explained that the crew would always visit a local tattoo shop. "One of the things we’d do as a group, we’d all go to the f**king tattoo shop,” Shia says. But Shia says he's not a super fan of the "Pep Rally" artist; he was actually kind of back into it. “I don’t love Missy Elliott like I wanna get two Missy Elliott tattoos, But you’re in a tattoo parlor, and peer pressure.” A tiny smiley face tattoo might have sufficed, but Shia seems like a 'go big or go home' type of guy.

Unfortunately, there is no photographic proof of the tattoos, and it's a little unclear if the ink was permanent or just a funny prank. But whatever the case may be, Shia is now the newest celeb to join the movement of tatting music icons on their body, right behind Kevin Durant. The Golden State Warrior recently got a tat of Rick James on his thigh to go along with his tattoos of Tupac and the Wu-Tang Clan.

But in regards to Shia's new ink, we have to wonder what Missy thinks about all of this.

Justin Bieber Flips 50 Cent's "Many Men" During Studio Session

Less than two weeks after becoming life partners with Hailey Baldwin, Justin Bieber returns to the studio where he's seen flexing his rap skills on his Instagram Stories.

The "Let Me Love You" singer rapped about his absence from pop culture, and his wife.

“Took a couple years off/Shed a couple tears, dawg/Been a victim of the system/I’m a Christian with a vision/My wife, yeah, I put her on a pedestal/My life is like a movie, The Incredibles," raps Bieber.

He also rapped about taking medication for his depression before borrowing a hook from 50 Cent's "Many Men."

“They put me on some medicine/Never thought that my depression would depend on it/Many men, wish death upon me/ Blood in my eye dog and I can’t see/I’m trying to be what I’m destined to be / And people trying to take my life away."

Tekahshi 6ix9ine Reportedly Signs New Record Deal Worth $10 Million

Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine reportedly signed a $10 million record deal with his former label 10K Projects for two albums, TMZ reports.

It's said one of the projects will be in English while the other in Spanish. It's unclear what will happen to the deal if 6ix9ine is given less than the minimum 47-year-long sentence he faced before testifying against his former associates and Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods members.

Earlier today, Page Six reported that the rapper purchased new beats and plans to record music upon his release.

"It looks like he will be making music right away when he comes home," an anonymous music industry source told the outlet. "He already contacted a young NYC producer, and someone purchased two beats for him."

Last month,  it was reported that Tekashi denied witness protection after testifying against Anthony "Harv" Ellison and Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack, two Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods members, who have been found guilty.

The rapper born Daniel Hernandez pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy and eight other charges in January. 69's forthcoming sentencing is scheduled for December 18.

T.I. Calls Iggy Azalea's Music Career A Stain On His Legacy

T.I. isn't necessarily proud of his investment in Iggy Azalea's music career.

In an interview with The Root (Oct. 9), the Atlanta rapper revealed he's on the hunt to discover a new talented female rapper with bars so that he can undo the "blunder" of his former artist Iggy. The Dime Trap rapper added that the Australian rapper's career is a stain on his legacy as a label executive.

“I’m still actively looking for another female rapper who can undo the blunder of Iggy Azalea,” Tip said. “That is the tarnish of my legacy as far as [being] an [music] executive is concerned. To me, this is like when Michael Jordan went to play baseball.”

The Grand Hustle boss has not worked with the "Fancy" rapper since 2015. Tip signed the Aussie artist to his label back in 2011 shortly after she released her debut mixtape, Ignorant Art.

When asked about Xtaci, a girl duo Tip once worked with, T.I. said sometimes things get in the way.

“Sometimes people just grow up and find out that maybe their time, efforts and attention would be better applied elsewhere but, right now, we do have Tokyo Jetz.”  Jetz is a woman rapper on the Grand Hustle label. She is mostly known for her single "The One."
