After Kid Cudi released his Shia LaBeouf-directed ‘Marijuana’ video last month, fans might have been scratching their heads about the actor’s connection with the rapper. Now the ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ star is opening up about his relationship with the hip-hop artist.

In an interview with MTV, LaBeouf began by talking about his relationship with rapper Cage. The 25-year-old directed his ‘I Never Knew You’ video and is reportedly working on the emcee’s biopic. “[Cage] is one of my good friends. Cage, Chris Palko, and I had been trying to make a movie about him for a while,” he explained.

LaBeouf continued, “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.”

The actor said he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with Cudi, and the trip to Amsterdam was an absolute must. “It’s as big as Spielberg,” he said. “It is for a 25-year-old male who has all these crazy fantasies about Amsterdam, which every male my age has, there’s that college trip you always want to take. 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.”

Cudi released the video for ‘Marijuana’ two months after publicly swearing off drugs. According to the rapper, the video acted as his final goodbye to smoking the substance.
