Justin Bieber has been vilified for his improper use of the N-word and his radical behavior. While many rappers have expressed their frustrations towards Bieber, he has received a handful of support. Common tagged alongside the likes of Migos, Young Money, and Soulja Boy in supporting Bieber. He said that he believes JB does support the black culture despite his past indiscretions. He spoke to VladTV in regards to the hot topic.
“I know how much Justin Bieber is—like he respects black culture,” Common said. “He surrounds himself with black people. So, I don’t think it was something that—To be honest I never even seen the tapes, but I got the feedback of it. But I don’t think it’s something that he was saying wholeheartedly to demean a black person. From what I—I didn’t see the tape, but from what I pick up I don’t think he—And if he did, he was in a place where he just didn’t know. Like he must have been raised in a place where he just didn’t know. Cause he obviously gravitated towards black culture. So, he has to have a certain amount of respect for it. For you to be a part of it and want to be a part of it,” Common said during his interview with DJ Vlad.
