Justin Bieber is currently making rounds and promoting his new album Justice, which looks destined to top the charts all over the world. His most recent stop was Amazon Music’s podcast The First One, where he discussed a number of intriguing topics with host DJ Khaled.

At one point, the duo was discussing the influence of rap on Bieber’s music which got Khaled asking the pop star about his favorite MCs of all time.

Bieber hesitated at first, knowing that his list could certainly cause some stir on social media.

“You know, when you open this conversation there’s always room for, ‘Awe, he can’t believe this,'” said Bieber.

The “Baby” singer then proceeded with revealing his picks: Lil Wayne, Biggie, Eminem, Kanye West, and Drake.

As Complex points out, this isn’t the first time Bieber has listed his favorite rappers. In some of the earlier interviews, he offered different responses that included 2Pac, Nas, and André 3000 among others. The only rapper he remained consistent about was Eminem, naming him each time as one of his favorites.

During his appearance on The First One, Bieber also touched on his beginnings on YouTube, the path to success, and his growth as an artist while sharing some further details about Justice.
