Justin Bieber is known for eliciting squeals from tweens by way of singing and dancing. But last night the Biebs made his debut as a rapper. Over Cam’Ron and Vado’s “Speaking in Tungs,” a huge hip-hop record in New York’s tri-state area, Bieber confidently steps to the mic in a short Youtube clip. Honestly, he’s pretty good. Lyrically it’s pretty light on substance. But that’s okay. He’s only 16! And rich. He rhymes about buying a girl diamonds, being on fire, and being fly. But there is one line that’s a cut above the rest, where he takes a shot at New England Patriot Tom Brady — who’s been getting a lot of heat for sporting Bieber’s hairstyle. Apparently there can only be one mop cut king.This kid just does it all, huh?
“Call up Mr. Brady,” Bieber spits as he gets into quarterback stance. “Tell him leave his hair to the guy who sings ‘Baby‘.” It’s all in good fun, of course. Don’t expect a rap album from Bieber any time soon. “I just wanted to do this just to prove that I have skills on the rap game,” he says when the track winds down. Mission accomplished. Check out the clip after the jump and let us know what you think of it. Is it time for Brady to meet a pair of scissors now?
