It appears that directing videos is the new rapping these days. A few weeks ago, we saw KiD CuDi’s Amsterdam-inspired video for “Marijuana.” As previously reported, the clip was directed by Shia LaBeouf. MTV sat down with the multi-talented artist and talked about the making of the story for the visual.

“[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.”
