Indie Rapper Cage Preps Comeback, Shia LaBeouf To Direct Video

Def Jux MC and former Eminem rival Cage will be releasing his third solo album later this year.

Following up 2005’s critically acclaimed album Hell’s Winter, Cage’s new disc, Depart From Me is scheduled to drop on June 30th. In the meantime, the underground staple has linked with the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim to put out a free seven-song digital EP which will be available in the coming months.

Actor Shia LaBeouf (Transformers), who is close friends with Cage, will be directing the rapper’s first single, “ I Never Knew You.” LaBeouf has been trying to turn Cage’s tumultuous life into a biopic for the last few years. According to a press release the Hollywood star will be playing Cage in the flick.

Cage will be playing at this year’s South By Southwest festival. – Elan Mancini
