After tapping Kanye West to work on his forthcoming album ‘Believe,’ Justin Bieber has taken on the epic challenge of leaving his own mark on one of Yeezy’s tracks. During a recent radio interview with Power 106 FM Bieber spit an original freestyle over Kanye and his ‘Watch the Throne’ partner Jay-Z‘s lead single ‘Otis.’

The pop sensation wowed his radio station hosts for a solid two minutes with his rap skills, especially when he pulled a Chris Brown, a la ‘Look at Me Now,’ while nearing the one minute mark and took a brief breather before exclaiming, “I’m not done!”

Bieber went on to give a shout-out to his girl Selena Gomez, who apparently “thinks [he’s] perfect” and “wants to get up under [him].” The 17-year-old even name dropped Otis Redding, whose 1966 version of the classic tune ‘Try a Little Tenderness‘ was sampled for the track.

“Thanked Jesus at the awards I’m never going to hell/ Call me Zack Morris I’m saving you by the bell,” JB rapped, referencing Kanye’s original verse, his awkward MTV VMAs acceptance speech in August and that time he wore a ‘Saved By the Bell‘ fan T-shirt — all in one fell swoop!

This isn’t the first time Bieber has tried his hand at hip-hop. The singer rapped alongside Busta Rhymes on his ‘Under the Mistletoe’ track ‘Little Drummer Boy.’
