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.

Weed is not a drug. It's from the earth. Big deal! Put it in the air and pass it!

C'mon, smoking dope is a right of passage and if it wasn't the Twister as his supply source, it would be someone else.

It's no big deal. He had to pop his bong cherry sometime.

Seems this could be why Selena, being smarter and more mature, kicked this little wannabe to the curb and cut ties with him.
Trying to be what he isn't, a black "rapper," can get him in a Tiajuana jail or worse.

I don't think this kid is good for Justin to hang with either. I know from personal experience pot can lead to harder drugs and Justin just doesn't need it. His manager etc. need to get a better handle on him before something bad happens.

I don't see how he is a bad influence. My close friend lived in a very upscale neighborhood and most of the white teens there had already experimented with drugs and were trying to get us to do E.

It's just weed! Tmz ruins **** for everyone. I bet you half the employees there smoke weed! Better than him being drunk. At least he is chilling and not driving and crashing into people.

So now Twist is getting stabbed in the back for partying with Beiber? Here's a weird suggestion, Justin- take responsibility for your own actions and decisions. You're an adult now. Cut the "bad influence" BS. You look like you know exactly what you're doing with that blunt. What a ****ty friend.
