Justin Bieber has taken his Biebervelli nick name to heart, recently while on BBC Radio 1 he gave a Live acoustic performance of 2Pac’s somber song “Thug Mansion.”

Apparently he views 2pac as one of his idols and does covers of all of favorite Pac songs on his own time frequently. the Bieb’s also got on the guitar himself and covered another childhood favorite, Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car,” which he’s been playing on his ‘Purpose tour.’
