Pop/R&B star Justin Bieber has won upwards of 40 awards for his accomplishments as a singer, including: eight Teen Choice Awards, two Kids’ Choice Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards and three American Music Awards. Although already established as every 13-year-old girl’s idol, Bieber is clearly not content and has decided to try his luck at rapping. On Nov. 2, Bieber appeared on L.A. radio station Power 106 to show America his rhyming skills in a freestyle over Kanye West’s and Jay-Z’s “Watch the Throne” hit “Otis.”

Surprisingly, this is not the first time Bieber has shown interest in rapping. Ever since his release of “Baby,” these types of videos have been floating around the web. Bieber has even been featured as a rapper on Chris Brown’s latest mixtape, “Boy in Detention,” in the “Look At Me Now” sample-inspired track “Ladies Love Me.” Shawty Mane, Bieber’s rap alter ego, even released a music video via Twitter called “Speaking in Tongues” about a year ago.

Perhaps, it was the Ludacris verse on Bieber’s hit “Baby” that inspired the Canadian-born vocalist to test his abilities in the Hip-Hop realm. Or, maybe this freestyle was just a publicity stunt so that Bieber could have something in the news other than his baby mama drama and influence people to purchase his new holiday album, “Under the Mistletoe.” Either way, this freestyle is sure to make Bieber critics more skeptical of the teen’s abilities and Bieber fans more enthusiastic about his talent.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
