Rick Rubin--Justin Bieber Collab?

No stranger to Hip Hop centered collaborations, international pop mega-star Justin Bieber Hits the Studio with…Rick Rubin???

Think back to Jay-Z’s “Fade to Black” documentary and recall the studio session for “99 Problems,” in which the Brooklyn mogul explained Rick Rubin as a Hip Hop legend and one of the most eccentric dudes he’s ever met, “strange by strange standards.” The co-founder of Def Jam is also cultural architect and producer behind monster career highlights for Run DMC, the Beastie Boys, Kanye West, Eminem and the one Hov himself. For that kind of rap sheet there’s a plot twist in hearing Justin Bieber Hits the Studio with…Rick Rubin???

Or not really. After all, Rick has produced for metal bands and country singers as much as he’s been a mainstay in Hip Hop. And who’s to say it’ll be a Hip Hop record at all? Really the focus here is what the Biebs is bout to do…what’s the aim exactly, what happens when a Justin Bieber Hits the Studio with…Rick Rubin???

The global phenomenon that is Justin Bieber who recently made headlines for an allegedly photo-shopped Calvin Klein underwear ad let the Twitter-verse in on the collab with a selfie from a late night session on Tuesday. Justin’s manager Scooter Braun also posted the pic on Instagram with the caption,

“Working on some history! Rick and JB.”

So that’s that! Justin Bieber Hits the Studio with…Rick Rubin??? and apparently, they’re cooking history. But with an industry giant like Rick Rubin, nothing less is expected.
