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.

Bad things?? Like what? An innocent man losing his life on the freeway? I can't think of anything worse. And then this vial little prick came out and acted as IF that photog was telling lies on him. That done it for me. A BOYCOTT of Bieber is on- It's not about the pot it's about his careless, shameless words of Bieber after the death of another human being. It clearly shows he's has no soul or heart!

I think the "Just say no” mentality is so crazed. I saw a thing in a women’s magazine the other day. He smokes cannabis, what am I to do? He laughs it off when I try to tell him, he says it’s not really harmful… Of course you’re half hoping the advice will be, “Well, you know it’s not that harmful; if you love him, if you talk to him about it, tell him maybe keep it in the garden shed or something, you know, a reasonable point of view. But of course it was, No, no, all drugs are bad. All drugs are bad. Librium’s good, Valium’s good, ciggies are good, vodka’s good. But cannabis, ooooh! I hate that unreasoned attitude. I really can’t believe it’s 50 years since the ’60.........s. I find it staggering. It’s like the future, the ’60.........s to me, it’s like it hasn’t happened. I feel the ’60.........s are about to arrive. And we’re in some sort of time warp and it’s still going to happen.

The basic thing nobody asks is why do people
take drugs of any sort? Why do we have these
accessories to normal living to live? I mean, is
there something wrong with society that's making
us so pressurized that we cannot live without
guarding ourselves against it? Once you're so depressed that you get into drugs,
once you're on them, it's very, very hard to see
the light or to have any kind of hope. All you
think about is the drug, and it's no good to us
preaching at people and saying don't take them.
Because that doesn't work. It's like the church
telling you not to drink or not to have sex when
you're a kid. There's nothing on earth gonna do
it. But if people take any notice of what we say,
we say we've been through the drug scene, man,
and there's nothing like being straight. You need
hope, and hope is something that you build within
yourself and with your friends. It's a very
difficult situation, drugs ... The worst drugs are
as bad as anybody's told you. It's just a dumb trip,
which I can't condemn people if they get into it,
because one gets into it for one's personal, social,
emotional reasons. It's something to be avoided if
one can help it.
