Does Justin Bieber Have A Legit Claim To His New Nickname? Lethal Bizzle Says No

Who's the better Bizzle? We break it down ... but you decide who gets to claim the name.

Justin Bieber’s been getting in touch with his inner badass for a while now, urinating in mop buckets — and insulting former presidents — with impunity, threatening paparazzo while dressed like PaRappa the Rapper and cutting a swath of destruction that stretches from Calabasas to Canada .

Fittingly, he’s also chosen an appropriate alter-ego for all that bad behavior: Bizzle, which is what he’s going by on Instagram these days. The only problem? Seems Bizzle’s already taken … by British rapper Lethal Bizzle, who took to his Facebook page to express his disgust over the co-opting of his stage name.

Then again, it bears mention that perhaps Bieber wasn’t aware of Bizzle’s existence before he took the name … to be honest, until I started writing this, I’d never heard of him either. But in the U.K., Bizzle’s a pretty big deal, scoring a series of hits that stretches back more than a decade, making headlines for a feud with whatever this is and coining the term “Dench,” which apparently has nothing to do with Dame Judy.

In short, he’s probably got a better claim to the nickname than JB does. But rather than rush judgment, I’ve decided to compare the actual Bizzle to the Canadian equivalent, then let you decide who deserves the title. This is “Better Know A Bizzle.”

Actual Bizzle: Born Maxwell Ansah, he rose to prominence in 2002 as part of the the More Fire Crew, early pioneers of the UK’s grime scene, before going solo with “Pow (Forward),” which remains his highest-charting song to date. He’d subsequently release the sequel, “Pow 2011″ in, uh, 2011.

Canadian Bizzle: Born Justin Drew Bieber, he was discovered in 2008 by manager Scooter Braun, who was trawling YouTube for talent. Released his debut album, My World in 2010. He’d subsequently become the most famous teenager on planet earth.
