Justin Bieber's Rapper Alter-Ego Returns on Maejor Ali's "Lolly"

Meet Shawty Mane

Justin Bieber's swag hasn't slowed a bit since his split from Selena Gomez. When he's not busy being besties with the undefeated Floyd Mayweather or getting his hands on exclusive copies of coveted movie scripts or hitting the studio with summer anthem-extraordinaire Pharrell, he's fine-tuning his alter-ego, Shawty Mane, who he introduced to us back in 2011. Shawty Mane raps. Shawty Mane gets genuinely odd co-signs from respectable rappers like Vado. Shawty Mane has been compared to Biggie. And now Shawty Mane is back.

In Maejor Ali's new video for his single "Lolly" (not to be confused with music's favorite new drug, Molly, though, le sigh, that does indeed get a mention as well), the former producer (once known as Bei Maejor), gives listeners one hell of a 101 school lesson. There are so many things I never knew rhymed with 'lolly' which, by the way, does not refer to the candy pop, so see if you can crack that very thinly-veiled code. Anyway, there's 'Hibachi' and 'Papi' and 'Massage me,' it's all very informative.

Then Shawty Mane, who up until this point has only bopped his shoulders amidst a bevy of dancers in front of a candy-colored backdrop, enters and his lyrics are simple enough that, before you know it, the song has become, dare I say it, catchy: "Throwing up a G note / Like I'm at a casino / I'm all fancy, yeah / I'm popping Pellegrino."

With a sign-off from Juicy J, who's surely solidified his spot as creator of songs fit for, well, certain types of clubs, expect this to become a banger, too. [Follow @daniellesaid]

Bieber has that feminine look, a boy toy, too dolled up, more like 'Liberace.  His puff puff hair style and waxed eyebrows are feminine. Now as a rapper, that's not for weird looking crackers. He looks malnourished, and what is with those enormous black sun glasses.  How the hell does he hold up that large head.  I hope he finds himself soon because his scummy brief showing, crouch hanging pants, moon hiking sneakers and crude lyrics make me sick,.

A dog took a $hit in my yard. I am sure that's more news worthy than Biebs

To think, Usher is his idol and mentor.......


Surely Usher has a few regrets about taking him under his wing......


Totally embarrassed to be associated with him.  He needs to distance himself from the no--talent little twit

Little girls love JB (like 8 -14 year olds).  Now he's associating himself with this video that has lyrics like "she loves my lolly - wants to make it pop - wants to kiss the top"  & "she put her pussy on it" & "Molly make her lose her underwear".  WTF?!  There are even young kids dancing in the video!  Any respect I ever had for him transforming from a teeny-bopper into a real "artist" has been lost, WAY LOST!  He's turning into the male version of Miley Cyrus.

He's being a copy cat...his big brother Miley did it so now he has to as well.  They both suck.

Okay, barf, I've seen more than enough.  Not impressed with Biebs or this video at all.
