Justin Bieber Raps: Swag or Sad?

Justin Bieber has a bone to pick with DJ Premier. Back in October, Bieber was looking to perform in the BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher, but got slapped down by Premier when Bieber was quoted as saying he wanted rapper Ludacris to write his rhymes for him. Ludacris said that wasn't true, but it doesn't matter now because Bieber just debuted his own rap skills on the Hot 97.5 radio show in Vegas.

You don't even have to listen to the clip to guess what people are saying about it. The YouTube comments are vicious, especially since the Biebs rapped over a popular Biggie beat ("Who Shot Ya.") But we have to admit, we were a little surprised he managed to do what he did. It's certainly not "impressive," but we've heard much, much worse. (Sorry, Reh Dogg.) Give it a listen and tell us what you think!

    I don't care if this is his dream.
    I don't care if he is "trying".
    The fact is, he is terrible and falsely celebrated. Our standards of music are so low that Justin Bieber is famous. Now he's going from being terrible in one genre to being terrible in another.

    I watched that video, and it was painful. Possibly even more so than his other crap.

    I'm sick of seeing real talent fall in favor of this.

    i am a loyal fan!!! i truly believe that he can rap!!!
  • GG Amber 2012/06/06 17:25:39
    That's great that you believe he can rap, but FACT is he is not good.
    Put him up against any other rapper (from popular ones to none famous rappers) and see if he stands on his own and stand out. He wouldn't last 3 seconds.
    Again I'm not being mean, he just doesn't have what it takes right now (based off the videos I've seen). If he is just doing this to please his fans, that's fine (because you guys will love anything that he does lol) but if he is trying to make a serious career move out of this, you are setting him up for failure..........just being honest.

    This was sad..and when he covered Eminem's lose yourself...that was too bad...!
  • KatherineKnight250 2011/12/22 13:50:53
    He finally realized tthat he has no talent in music but instead of stopping, he raps. He's so desperate that is sad to watch, poor kid, he doesn't know what he's doing.

    So you're using "swag" after it was just voted to be THE most annoying word of 2011 by SodaHead's own?

  • Cathy 2011/12/22 13:37:52
    Even though Bieber passed a part in his rapping....it still was very good. I say to Bieber...do your thing and I like your swag!!

    1) learn how to spell
    2) aint isn't a word.... Uhuhu isn't...
    3) he sucks at everything he does really...
    4) he's not "dope"
  • Amber dabooty 2012/06/06 14:26:03 (edited)
    1) Maybe she wants to spell like that
    2) AIN'T is in the dictionary, so it's a word
    3) YOU suck at everything you do... really...
    4) He's "doper" than you will ever be...

    YOU are NOBODY... HE is SOMEBODY...
  • Calluse... nadia b... 2011/12/22 07:48:39
    Making money and having talent are not synonymous. Google 'Milli Vanilli'. Also, like someone else said, learn to spell. He's also not 'real talented'. He's just really desperate and there are lots of people like you that are apparently willing to overlook that, which, more power to all of you. It's your money you're wasting.

    Why does he think he's good? Or popular? Or worthy of any attention?
  • Kelsie 2011/12/22 04:30:58
    Good grief. I never understood why girls my age find him so attractive. He's got some talent (in singing, NOT rapping), but he is definitely not attractive... Nor can he rap. Smh.
