Justin Bieber ain’t worried about nothing. While he continues to make headlines for hotboxing private jets, drag racing and comparing his plight to that of Michael Jackson’s, the teen star is just living life and kicking it with his rapper friends.
In the wee hours of Thursday morning (February 6), Bieber shared an Instagram photo of himself in the studio with Diddy, Rick Ross, Jermaine Dupri, Wale and Stalley, who were helping to put the finishing touches on Rozay’s upcoming Mastermind album.
Both Diddy and Ross later posted the same photo, so it looks like everyone was having a grand ol’ time. On Wednesday night, Bieber also spent some time hanging with T-Pain in the studio, which means that he was probably just making the rounds while in Atlanta with his drag racing pal Chantel Jeffries.
While it’s possible that Bieber could make an appearance on Mastermind, we just can’t imagine Ross making room for him on an album that now boasts a much-hyped feature from his former nemesis, Jeezy . In our minds, it was likely advice vs. music that was traded in those sessions.
After all, who better than Diddy and Rick Ross to pass down words of wisdom on dealing with scandals and legal troubles, under the glare of the spotlight? In 2001, Diddy withstood a very public trial for gun and bribery charges after a 1999 nightclub shooting that left former Bad Boy rapper Shyne in prison. Back in 2009, Ross fessed up to being a former correctional officer (after much taunting from 50 Cent) and it’s safe to say that they’ve both recovered just fine.
According to photos, at some point in the night they also ended up at Atlanta’s Vanquish nightclub, where Bieber decided to go shirtless next to Ross and Diddy, but optional shirts are just standard for The Biebs at this point.
