Having given fans a taste of his rapping skills during live performances of “Baby” when he tackles the verse Ludacris recorded for the tune, Justin Bieber is now displaying his keen spitting prowess in a new video posted on his Twitter. In the grainy clip, Bieber rhymes along to a track titled “Speaking in Tongues,” and in a message posted on the webpage, he announces that his rap alias is Shawty Mane.

“Speaking in tongues freestyle… who knew I could rap lol,” he wrote. “My alter ego rap name is Shawty Mane… hah.”

The video features shots of Bieber in the studio and hanging out in the streets rocking some glasses. Early on, he gives a shout-out to Lady Gaga: “Call up Lady Gaga on my on my telephone/ Hello doll/ You’re my girl/ Beats no metronome.”

He then talks up his own capabilities, rhyming, “So I’m raptor/ Tearing it up like a tractor/ Matter fact you’re not feeling this track you’re a slacker.” Later, he raps, “Stop, drop and roll/ Justin Bieber’s on fire/ It’s time to realize it’s time to call me young sire.”

At the end of the clip, Bieber — who hangs out with such hip-hop heavyweights as Drake, Kanye West and the aforementioned Luda — has a little message for those listening to the track. “You guys might know me as the guy who sings ‘Baby’/ You know, uh, I’m a singer, pop singer/ I’m white/ But, um, you know I just wanted to do this just to prove that/ You know I got skills, on, on, on the rap game.”

Last December, Bieber’s pal, rapper Asher Roth, defended his buddy’s rapping skills to MTV News. “He lived like a block away from me. Watching him is like watching your little brother. It’s crazy,” Roth said, referring to their time in Atlanta together. “He can rap. I put him on a remix, but I don’t think his mom would like that very much.”

Update: Asher Roth Denies Being Gay

Posted: Monday – December 21, 2009

In the wake of all the hoopla surrounding the “Gay Rapper” and Asher Roth possibly being the poster boy for the cause and coming out the closet, the Pennsylvania MC has put the brakes on the speculation. Asher released the following statement putting an end to the rumors:

“I hate to disappoint and take away the entertainment of it all but I am straight, not gay. It’s disheartening to know such “news” on someone’s personal life can be portrayed as fact with no viable source. This, to me, is an opportunity to expose our vulnerability to lies and manipulation through unprofessional and irresponsible news outlets, in which people consider TRUTH. Further, someone’s sexual orientation should NEVER be big news, as it delivers a troubling message to children that they can’t be themselves without fear of judgment.

Race, creed, and sexual persuasion should not just be tolerated but understood and accepted. It’s extremely disappointing that this topic would be used with the intention of being hurtful. We are near 2010….2010!! Yet race, sex and religion still play a major role in a hate driven society. For the love of the future and humanity….let’s wake up.”
