If you’re wondering why Detox is taking so long, you may want to ask Justin Bieber. The 16-year-old sensation took a field trip to Dr. Dre’s studio, diverting his attention from the long-awaited project.
While there’s a line around the block to see the Doc, you’re given a front-of-the-line pass when you’re the biggest teen pop star in the world. Justin Bieber spent his day off from touring by getting a lesson from the hip-hop pioneer. “Got to be in the studio with the legend himself Dr. Dre,” he wrote on Twitter. “Made a couple beats and he gave me some advice…i was hyped. can u blame me?”
The hip-hop community has been receptive to Bieber, who’s hobnobbed with Dre affiliate Eminem and received an endorsement from Game. “He’s another artist that breaks the color lines,” the West Coast rapper told Rap-Up TV. “Everybody loves this kid and he seems like a good kid. More power to him.”
Bieber’s tourmate Sean Kingston also shared in the unforgettable experience. “Aww Man Today Was A Dope Day!!! Got To Meet Dr. Dre… EVEN FREESTYLED ON 1 OF HIS BEATS :) MUST SAY THAT WAS #LEGENDARY,” he tweeted.
