After sharing a must-watch interview with Young Thug yesterday, Clique's Mouloud Achour is back at it today with a revealing interview with Justin Bieber. Meeting up with Bieber in his hotel in Paris, the two discuss everything from his image, to his fans, to recent collaborators Skrillex, Diplo and even Kanye West.

Specifically he reveals that the song they worked on may not make the album, but he also shared some very personal info about 'Ye's creative process. "Kanye’s a talker. You get him in a room and he starts talking and ranting, I just sit and I listen. He’s been through a lot of stuff and he’s not just talking to talk, he has something to say from his heart," said Justin. "I just sit and listen because he’s really smart." 

He also goes on to discuss his top MCs and whether he prefers Drake or Meek Mill following their very publicized feud. Achour also references Kanye's now infamous declaration to run for President in 2020, and asked him was he would do if he were president. Bieber immediately shifted towards the topic of gun control, and Canada's overall lack of violence. "I’d probably fix some of the gun laws. In Canada we don’t really have any guns and there’s no gun violence. That really solves it, that’s for protection but it always ends up in some bozo's hand," he said. 

Watch the whole interview above.
