This one of the signs of the Apocalypse, right?

Def Jam co-founder and music legend Rick Rubin -- who has produced classics for everyone from Jay Z to Slayer to Johnny Cash to Run-D.M.C. -- is working on something with Justin Bieber.

The Revelations-esque revelation comes via Scooter Braun's Instagram. Bieber's manager posted a pic of the two leaning into each other with the caption, "Working on some history!"

Given that Justin Bieber is a singer and Rick Rubin is a producer, it's probably a good bet the work Braun alludes to is studio time.

Bieber fans are clearly very excited about the pairing, referring to the game-changing prodcuer as "Santa" and "Dumbledore" in the comments. So, time to get ready for Bieber's version of Reign in Blood, right?
