And now teen idol Justin Bieber got the chance to rub shoulders as just one of the 'fellas' with signifying hip hop artist Jay Z at a nightclub in Miami, Florida.
The 19-year-old immortalised the moment with an Instagram snap as he smilingly flashed gang signs next to the ever sober-looking media mogul, on Friday night.

Looking incredibly pleased with the situation, Bieber contorted his fingers into a Westside gang symbol while the 43-year-old husband to Beyonce gave the camera a stone-cold stare.
Surely thrilled with his night of revelry with some of hip hop's most iconic rappers, the tattooed Boyfriend singer tweeted the snap the following morning with the caption: 'Last night with the fellas'.

Meanwhile, Bieber told Teen Vogue in April he is modelling his career after Jay Z.
The teenager explained, regarding his method of dealing with the press: 'I don’t need to address every speculation.
'Remember when Cam’ron dissed Jay-Z? Jay-Z didn’t even respond. Why didn’t he respond, because he’s Jay-Z.'

Bieber has racked up a string of incidents this year where he engaged in over-the-top 'pop brat' antics.
A small sampling of his bad boy behaviour includes, allegedly spitting on a neighbour and urinating in a janitor's mop bucket in the kitchen of a New York night club.
