Lil Mo said Bieber has even motivated her to practice before shows to his music.
"I don't think people realize the anointing in his voice. I actually rehears to him before my shows these days," she gushes, adding that she's also a fan of Jason Derulo. "I love his placements. He's no. 1 on my list right now." (XXL Mag)Young Money's Lil Wayne claims he frequently denies Bieber's requests to collaborate together.
While fans can expect to hear both Heartbreak Drake and Ms. Minaj on Tha Carter IV, it's the two Justin's that Weezy F. also talks about. "That's my little homie now," Wayne says of The Biebs. "He texts me every night asking me to do [his] d*mn song. That's my n*gga, but I can't do it. Like I said, I don't want to f*ck his sh*t up. But like I said, I want to work with Justin Timberlake. That boy got a voice; that boy can sing. He needs to come back right there on Tha Carter IV." (XXL Mag)Recently, former Ruff Ryder artist Drag-On told SOHH he would jump if given an opportunity to record alongside Bieber.
"Yeah, h*ll yeah," Drag told SOHH when asked if he would collaborate with Justin Bieber. "H*ll yeah, dog. I co-sign Justin Bieber. He's a little young kid doing his thing. He came up off the Internet doing nothing. You know what I'm saying? I respect it. Word up. He's young. I wish that dude the best. I'd jump on a song with Justin Bieber tonight, yo!" (SOHH)G-Unit's Lloyd Banks previously spilled his Bieber admiration.
"I would definitely do a record with Justin Bieber. I think early on in my career things were a little different. Now, the fact of the matter is the youth determines which way music is going to go," explains Banks. "When you become influential enough to control one market, I think it's time to cross-market."
