Justin Bieber has worked hard to earn his rap pass. His latest album features Big Sean, Drake and Nicki Minaj, and he’s been making the radio rounds dropping freestyles like he’s part of State Property circa 2000. With all these rap features and lyrical connections, it makes sense for him to add a few contacts to his iPhone and get even more collaborations going for his next project.
And since working with rappers helped push him to Billboard’s biggest first-week release of the year with approximately 370k units sold), Biebs might as well go all the way and get these 10 guests on his next album. Take a look.
1. Too Short — If XXL thinks Short is fit to tell high school boys how to get the p*ssy then who am I to argue? Let him drop an instructional 16 for Bieber’s fan base.
2. Canibus — He’s got full scrolls loaded with rap lyrics, so lending a few to Bieber would be noooo problem. And let’s not trip like he wasn’t the man on the “Gone Til November” remix.
3. Rick Ross — Bieber likes to stick with people that have clean, law-abiding backgrounds. And whose background is more squeaky clean than former parole officer Rick Ross? Soccer moms would love to hear a former cop that raps.
4. Immortal Technique — Bieber should broaden his horizons. When he wants to sing about the Gaza Strip, trade embargoes or Guantanamo Bay, he can look to Immortal Technique to help with a quick verse.
