Justin Bieber Rejected Tyler, the Creator and Frank Ocean
The song, which would have been featured on Bieber's Platinum-selling Believe, was rejected by Bieber.
"I've got so many beats and songs, but no one's giving me a chance yet," Tyler told Billboard. "I want to take Justin Bieber for a month and just lock him up in a cage where we sit and make music. He's one of the most successful people in the world, but his music could be so much tighter."
That's the same Bieber who told British magazine Q last year that, though Tyler's his "boy," he "doesn't get the whole, you know, demonic thing."
The 22-year-old rapper, who produces his music and serves as the artistic brain of his own brand, has aspirations to become a big name producer, according to Billboard. For now, he'll be collaborating with Miley Cyrus for her upcoming album, and he's created Camp Flog Gnaw, which provides Tyler's services to companies looking to engage a younger demographic. The creative outlet has already spawned a series of Tyler-helmed commercials for Mountain Dew, which star a goat named Felicia. more on this story
