“A Milli” producer Bangladesh recently discussed kicking it with teenage pop sensation Justin Bieber and just how big of a hip-hop head the 17 year-old star really is.
Detailing working alongside the Biebs, Bang said he envisions himself rhyming on top of Lil Wayne-type records.
“Yeah he’s just a cool kid, influenced by the hip-hop community. (He) wants to be in the clubs, wants to be relevant everywhere. Just wants to be like standing next to Wayne in the club type. He want an 808. He wants to sing and he wants a big booty girl. But he’s a cool little dude, he’s talkative, down to earth, but he really knows dope beats though. When I’m playing, I know my selection of music that I’m playing. I know what’s on this level and that level and Justin picked some good beats. So he got an ear for what he wants to do.” (Global Grind)
Last summer, Weezy said despite his admiration for Bieber, he can not work with him at this stage of his career.
While fans can expect to hear both Heartbreak Drake and Ms. Minaj on Tha Carter IV, it’s the two Justin’s that Weezy F. also talks about. “That’s my little homie now,” Wayne says of The Biebs. “He texts me every night asking me to do [his] d*mn song. That’s my n*gga, but I can’t do it. Like I said, I don’t want to f*ck his sh*t up. But like I said, I want to work with Justin Timberlake. That boy got a voice; that boy can sing. He needs to come back right there on Tha Carter IV.” (XXL Mag)
Earlier this year, Bieber covered Wayne’s “How to Love” Tha Carter IV single.
If you, like Vulture, forgot to send a really awesome present, don’t worry; Justin Bieber was on top of it. Young Biebs tweeted out a remix of Wayne’s oft-maligned hit single “How to Love” late last night, with an obligatory birthday greeting. Okay, hear us out: Even if you weren’t a fan of the slightly dull original, you might enjoy this cover. In fact, this cover might explain why many Wayne devotees weren’t particularly jazzed on the single. This is actually a Justin Bieber song! Granted, Biebs tries a lot harder in his version: We’re talking harmonies, a meandering guitar riff, and even a brief appearance by Shawty Mane (that would be Bieber’s rapping alter ego, though this breathy verse maybe only counts as half-rap).

Recently, Ruff Ryders affiliate Drag-On told SOHH he would jump if given an opportunity to record alongside Bieber.
“Yeah, h*ll yeah,” Drag told SOHH when asked if he would collaborate with Justin Bieber. “H*ll yeah, dog. I co-sign Justin Bieber. He’s a little young kid doing his thing. He came up off the Internet doing nothing. You know what I’m saying? I respect it. Word up. He’s young. I wish that dude the best. I’d jump on a song with Justin Bieber tonight, yo!” (SOHH)
