Justin Bieber to Host 'Saturday Night Live,' Says Alec Baldwin

In a stop by Power 106's Big Boy's Neighborhood, Justin Bieber showed off some of the skills possessed by his hip-hop alter ego "Shawty Mane." Bieber asked for the beat from Kanye West and Jay-Z's collaborative hit, "Otis," off Billboard 200 No. 1 "Watch the Throne," to unleash a three minute freestyle over.

Bieber spit a few rhymes over "Otis" that his girlfriend, Selena Gomez, is sure to appreciate. "I thank Jesus at the awards, I'm never going to hell/ Call me Zack Morris, I'm saving you by the bell/ My girl says I'm perfect, she just loves an imperfect person perfectly/ Personally, I think she is perfectly perfect," Bieber raps.

One person who may not appreciate Beiber's rap however is DJ Premier. Earlier this month, HipHopDX reported that Premier wouldn't allow Biebs in on any of the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards cyphers because Bieber reportedly wanted Ludacris to write his rhymes. "If you ain't writing your own rhyme, you can't do it. So, Justin, you gotta take a backseat on that one," Premier told HipHopDX.
