Kanye West to Justin Bieber: ‘I Wanna Make You Cool’

Kanye West and Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is pushing the boundaries with some help from Kanye West. The teen sensation praised Yeezy for his creativity and helping him evolve his sound on his upcoming album Believe.

The two were recently photographed in the lab working on new music. “Just being in the studio with him, he’s just so creative and everything he says he means it and he’s really smart,” the 18-year-old pop superstar told MTV News. “It’s always great to get in the studio with those types of people.”

Kanye, who previously collaborated with Justin on the remix to “Runaway Love,” offered some pointers to his younger peer. “Basically he was just talking about going out the box and doing things that are different, but making it cool,” he explained. “He’s like, ‘I wanna just make you cool.’ He wants to do records that people wouldn’t necessarily think that I would do. Kanye’s a really smart guy.”

Bieber also opened up about his friendship with Lil Wayne, who recently called him at 4:30 a.m. to go skating. “He’s into skating. It’s his life,” he said. “I like more street stuff, he does a lot of vert stuff. Vert is like ramps, street is like rails and kick flips.”

But don’t expect Weezy to appear on his album. “He didn’t get the chance to work on the album. He’s been super busy and we just haven’t gotten a chance to connect in the studio. I was in the studio in Miami for a minute, but we never got the chance to do anything.”

Bieber has enlisted today’s top hitmakers including Drake, Diplo, Danja, Rodney Jerkins, Pharrell, Timbaland, Hit-Boy, and more for Believe, due June 19. Watch the video for his first single “Boyfriend.”

    I give props to Bieber for being able to hold his own. I would stress out if I were in the studio with Kanye, just because he seems to be such an influential person and you don’t want to let him down.

    Trying to make him cool? lmao
    I think Kanye was trying to play him with that statement. smh lol He was “cool” for em’ lil’ girls. He’s trying to make him appeal to a more grown up crowd almost like a Justin Timerlake. Good luck Kanye. lol!

    What he means is Kanye is trying to make Bieber appeal to the urban audience. I mean Boyfriend is a good song, hopefully the songs with Kanye are good.

    I respect Kanye West for doing songs with Justin Bieber. I think Kanye West wants Justin Bieber to become more popular with urban music fans. The only way Justin Bieber will ever get support from hip hop fans, is if he starts making great music. Some people think Justin Bieber is trying to steal Justin Timberlake’s style. I don’t see anything in Justin Bieber that resembles Justin Timberlake. The only thing Justin Bieber and Justin Timberlake have in common, is that both guys are considered pop artists. Ever since Justin Timberlake left N’Sync, Justin Timberlake has been making music that is more closer to R and B than what Justin Bieber has making lately.

    Why in the world would kanye make a song with the bieber. Kanye is one of the best artist out there and the bieber isn’t any good, all of his fans gotta be tone death or something.
