10 Reasons Why Justin Bieber Has Earned His Hood Pass


Justin Bieber really wants us to believe that he has grown up. Since turning 18 in March, the world’s biggest pop star has gone out of his way to show maturity as an artist and even make his way into the Hip-Hop audience. Bieber is as safe as baby carrots and celery but for some reason it looks like he is hell bent on showing a bit of an edge. Call me crazy, but it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if Justin Bieber walked the streets of Brooklyn or something just to prove some sort of point. Think I’m bugging? Take a look at some recent examples of why we think this guy is desperately trying to get a verified hood pass.

    Thank you commenters!  Reading the title of this post reminds me of a black Republican bashing Affirmative Action, or Zimmerman’s black friend defending him.  PLEASE don’t make it seem like black people are giving Bieber a hood pass.  I’ll say you’re born with it, basically.  Either by your living conditions or the color of your skin.  Hood means tried and tested, almost on a daily basis.  And I don’t mean by crazy fans.

    You can gone with that bullcrap…..as much crap as Wayne Brady got over his career for being a sellout and this dude just hangs around black people and he gets a pass?? And what the hell is a “hood pass” anyway? As a black man, I say no thanks to that “pass”…

    I just want to know who the phuque writes these articles. Hood mentality is nothing to be glorified in any way. This kid knows nothing about the hood and I know for sure he’s not trying to visit no type of hood.
