It’s been a Young Money kind of week for Justin Bieber.
On Friday (April 11), the Biebs posted two pictures on Instagram of him and Lil Wayne together in the studio. “Me and Tunechi in the studio,” he wrote along with the first picture, before adding the equally nondescript “me and wayne” caption to his next photo.
Birdman also shared a visual from the evening. “Latenite studio flow @justinbieber music amazin @birdman5star RG YMCMB,” he wrote on Instagram,with a picture that looked to be from the same session as one posted last week, where Birdman also praised the young star: “Day 3 in studio late nite workin with nephew @justinbieber tht @austinmahone song is a HIT just heard tha mix RG YMCMB @birdman5star.”
Not long after his photos went up on Instagram today, Bieber tweeted, “No one knows what Im planning ;).” Did that relate to his session with Weezy? Maybe, but maybe not — no one knows, of course.
What we do know is that, while he’s not officially signed to YMCMB, Bieber has been treated like family by the crew’s big dogs of late. On Monday night, he posted a picture of a Bugatti on Instagram, writing, “Uncle Stunna luv. My first Bugatti.” Later in the week, reports surfaced that it was a loan, not a gift — but it’s surely a telling gesture, no less.
If the end result of the Biebs and Tunechi pics is a collaboration, it wouldn’t be their first. The two worked together on “Backpack,” from the singer’s last release, Journals.
