What the hell?

It's bad enough that Kanye West is a brilliant, but ego-centric jackass, now he's selling out to collaborate with Justin Bieber!?

Justin Bieber has reached a new milestone. The 16-year-old singer from Canada has been mobbed by fans at malls, achieved the most YouTube video streams, and scored No. 1 on the charts. But now, he has officially hit a hip hop plateau, recording with the legendary Wu Tang Clan rapper Raekwon and Kanye West.

The Kanye-produced remix of Bieber's "Runaway Love," featuring rap verses from Raekwon and Kanye, was released Monday, and includes a surprise.

The revamped track incorporates a sample of the classic 1993 Wu-Tang Clan song "Wu Tang Clan Ain't Nuthing ta F*** Wit."

What the hell happened to the music industry?? We had talents like Dylan, the Beatles, Public Enemy, Ray Charles, etc. How did they get to catering to the lowerst common denominator?

ET Daughter put it best, Jonathan. After his gaffe with Taylor Swift, he needs to latch onto anybody who is remotely popular with teen girls and younger women to build back any kind of recognition or income stream there. Clearly a match made in the accounting department, not in heaven.
