Justin Bieber to Rap on Chris Brown & Asher Roth Projects

Justin Bieber’s rapping alter ego, Shawty Mane, is ready to come back out and play. The pop sensation recently tweeted that he will be appearing on Chris Brown’s forthcoming hip-hop mixtape, Boy in Detention, and also revealed that he has a feature on Asher Roth’s sophomore album—a man that told XXL, he used to babysit JB.

“Did a lil something on the upcoming @chrisbrown mixtape,” he wrote earlier this week. “Ladies love me. then we got crazy on the @asherroth album. #shawtymane (sic).”

As Shawty Mane, the Biebs has already rapped over Cam’ron and Vado’s track, “Speaking in Tongues” and channeled Busta Rhymes, reciting the rapper’s verse on “Look At Me Now” onstage with Brown.

But don’t fret, it doesn’t seem like Bieber is going to quit singing to start a rap career. When asked if he will ever put out an entire project as Shawty Mane, the Canadian native laughed. “I just do it for fun, but nothing serious,” he told XXL in the July/August 2011 issue. “I don’t think people would take me seriously if I came out with, like, a rap album.” —Elan Mancini

    i dnt c the problem here. for one he can rap better than eminem sings, and eminem (and most rappers) sing all the time today, ruining songs and whole albums with the shit (recvoery). no one seems to bother about tht. if eminem is allowed to use his naisly tone def voice to sing then biber should be allowed to rap. gettin all prissy about justin biber, smack talkingh im and all this shit aint cool man. all u dudes look lame as fuck on tht shit saying u dnt care bout him well u obviusly do. hes a kid livin his life and ur all kids who got no life.
