Canadian Pop sensation Justin Bieber has already been given the remix treatment by the likes of Kanye West and Raekwon, as well as rapped (as alias “Shawty Mane”) over Vado and Cam’ron’s “Speaking In Tungs” track. The YouTube and platinum-selling Island Def Jam Music Group star announced that he’ll be further making his forray into Hip Hop, working with Asher Roth on the SRC Records artist’s sophomore full-length.
Roth, a native of the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area has known Bieber for some time, as both artists are managed by Scooter Braun. Whether consumers of Roth’s LP will get the singing Bieber or rapping Mane is unknown, though the teenager hash-tagged the latter in a tweet this week.
Previously, Asher Roth expressed desire to work with the likes of DJ Premier and Pete Rock on his second go-round, in addition to work already completed with Q-Tip, Organized Noize and Pharrell.
