Producer slash rapper David Banner recently opened up about working with Justin Biever for his "Ladies Love Me" collaboration with singer Chris Brown. Banner says he was really impressed by Bieber's appreciation for hip hop.
And what happened, particularly when it came time for Bieber's contribution, took the entire studio by surprise. "I'm very protective of hip-hop, and I would never produce a song if I didn't think it was jamming," Banner shared, "and Justin Bieber floored everybody in the studio." For those questioning the credibility of Shawty Mane's hustle and flow skills, Banner sets the record straight. "When I look at the blogs, people are trying to dust it like: 'Did somebody write it? Was it Pro-Tooled together?' That boy… I actually wanted the very first take. We ended up doing it again, but he spit the whole verse all the way down non-stop. He spit," Banner clarified, explaining that the Biebs is a true student of hip-hop. "It made me feel good because it shows you the effect of [hip-hop] culture. And for him to study and dissect our culture that way… he really has a respect to spend that much time, because that takes practice to be able to spit and rap like that. And I was impressed."
