Justin Bieber Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber is testing his rap skills by collaborating with Chris Brown on the R&B singer's first hip-hop mixtape.

Brown has recruited his young friend to join him on new release Boy in Detention, his first as a rapper.

The Baby hitmaker has previously adopted the rap moniker Shawty Mane and he is reintroducing fans to the alter ego on Brown's mixtape and on another track with rising hip-hop star Asher Roth.

In a recent post on Twitter.com, Bieber wrote, "Did a lil something on the upcoming @chrisbrown mixtape. Ladies love me. then we got crazy on the @asherroth album. #shawtymane"

But Bieber has no plans to ditch his pop roots.

He tells XXL magazine, "I just do it for fun, but nothing serious. I don't think people would take me seriously if I came out with, like, a rap album."
