Lil Twist

Bad Influence

On Bieber

1/6/2013 12:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0106_Lil-Twist_instagram2Justin Bieber is under the influence ... of a rapper named Lil Twist -- and the rapper may be leading JB down a dangerous path.

Twist was with Bieber in a Newport Beach hotel room last week, where, we're told, the rapper was happily rolling blunts for J.B. and others.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... JB and Twist have become tight ... and have been smoking together on a number of other occasions.

0106-lil-twist-justin-bieber-instagram-article-2-nye-3You'll recall ... Twist was speeding on the 405 Freeway New Year's Day in Justin's Ferrari when he was pulled over by cops.  A photog was killed trying to snap pics of the traffic stop.  Prior to the accident, Twist and Justin had spent much of the day in a room at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills -- where Justin frequently gets a room.

Twist's Twitter profile pic makes it  clear ... he's a fan.

Sources involved in Justin's life who care about him are deeply concerned that Twist has become a powerful negative influence in his life and feel very strongly Justin needs a clean break from the rapper or else bad things are going to happen.

FYI ... Lil Twist is signed by Lil Wayne and close knit with the Cash Money and Young Money crews.

Come on, If you idiots think that just because Bieber might try smokin a blunt, that we need to demonize and attack everyone who does so and is in his life? In my opinion, the little **** could use a toke to calm the hell down and realize how much of a self-obsessed ******* he really is.

Lil Twist is not the last justin has smoke with or will smoke with. We also blame the black kids for every bad. Justin is not perfect, he is a teen and that's what we do, all part of growing up.

I'm a Justin Bieber fan,(you can bash me for that some other time) but even i agree, you can't blame Twist for his actions! Justin is 18 now, a grown adult, he knows right from wrong!! Do i like him hanging around Twist?? NO, but not just because of the weed smoking, or that he's black!! but Justin can choose whoever he wants to hang out with!! If it gets him into trouble, nobodies fault but his own!!

Justin's manager just tweeted saying"alot of BS out there.. And im thinking he is talking about this post, considering Twist was with Justin last night at his concert.. Doesnt sound like they are trying to get Twist away from Justin!!

To: Justin's mother...what were you thinking handing your son over to these thugs when he was so young and impressionable at the time. You have lost him now. The thug mindset has evolved in him from the examples he has had for so many years now. I blame you for letting him go, no matter how bad he wanted fame, you should never have taken him out of Canada while he was still developing and growing, because now he has American values, not Canadian values. He may have apologized to the photogs family, but he also criticized the guy the day after he died. That's not the Canadian way. That's the heartless American way.

Bob Dylan had heard one of our records where we said, I can’t hide, and he had understood, I get high. He came running sand said to us, “Right, guys, I’ve got some really good grass. How could you not dig a bloke like that? He thought we were used to drugs. We smoked and laughed all night. He kept answering our phone, saying,This is Beatlemania here. It was ridiculous. We were smoking marijuana for breakfast during that period. Nobody could communicate with us; it was all glazed eyes and giggling all the time. In our own world.
