Off My Lawn, Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber tries to join BET's Cipher. Hilarity ensues:


Said DJ Premier: "Justin Bieber even asked if he could do the cypher. Everyone was worried that that might mess up the integrity of BET. I was like, 'As long as he got a dope rhyme, let him spit.' But then we heard, 'Oh, he wants Luda to write his rhyme...' And I was like, 'Oh, no, no, no, no, no. If you ain't writing your own rhyme, you can't do it. So, Justin you got to take a back seat. Write your own rhyme, Honey. You got to call him honey on that one.'"
