Apparently, pop star Justin Bieber wanted to take part in the BET Awards Cyphers this year. But the teenage sensation was shot down by producer DJ Premier, who hosted the Cyphers, which featured some of the most respected emcees in the game (and Chris Brown.)'
According to Primo's blog, Beebs asked if he could take part but wanted Ludacris to write his rhymes.
Premier has no beef with Bieber, but was adamantly against ghostwriting in the Cypher. So he rejected Bieber's request. The Cyphers are meant to showcase each rapper's skills and having someone else write your rhymes goes against the spirit of the showcase.
