The White Musician: Justin Bieber

The Rap Song: Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now”

How’d He Do? Surprisingly, Biebs did pretty well rapping both Chris Brown’s portion of the song and the Busta Rhymes guest verse. We’ve since seen that JB does have some skills on the mic—check out “Ladies Love Me” from CB’s recent Boy In Detention mixtape—so we probably shouldn’t be all that surprised that he was able to keep up with “Look At Me Now.” But, come on: Busta isn’t exactly the easiest dude to replicate and despite his squeaky voice, Bieber did a pretty commendable job. So we’ve gotta give the kid some credit.
