Shia LaBeouf's Not Worried About Soulja Boy's Threats

Shia LaBeouf knows Soulja Boy doesn't mean it when he says don't come to Atlanta,  'cause Soulja's a sweet kid at heart -- or at least that's what he's assuming.

Paps got the actor-turned-MC out Thursday in Studio City, where they asked what he had to say to Soulja ... who issued an ultimatum in rap's biggest -- meaning, silliest -- beef since Drake vs. Meek Mill.

Let's just say Soulja's probably on his own for landing a major movie debut.
