Seemingly being called Bizzle now, Justin Bieber supposedly wants to begin a new hip-hop career and get a luxury pad in Atlanta to be close to his rapping friends.

According to a report from TMZ, Bieber is in Atlanta now and has been hanging out with hip-hop stars such as Diddy, T.I. and Rick Ross. The site also reported that sources close to the situation claim Bieber (or Bizzle) has been scouting the area for the best real estate it has to offer.

Atlanta is known for being a hip-hop mecca and many of Bieber's rapping pals reside there or often hang out in the popular city. Just a few days ago, the Biebs was photographed partying with rap legends such as Jermain Dupri, Diddy and Alex Gidewon at the Vanquish Lounge for a Cîroc party. Bieber was shirtless, proudly showcasing his many tattoos, along with some heavy gold chains hanging from his neck and a huge gold Rolex watch. The teen pop sensation was also sporting a backwards baseball cap and sunglasses.

A couple of days later, on Feb. 8, the 19-year-old posted a picture of himself with T.I., saying that they were working "in the studio."

Bieber actually lived in Atlanta for a while when he first moved to the States from his native Canada and TMZ's sources said that Bieber "has fallen in love" with the Georgia capital all over again.

However, just a few weeks ago, other reports claimed that Bieber was looking for some horse-ranching property in Hidden Valley, California, to get away from "annoying neighbors." Of course, the famous teenager can certainly afford to live in both places without much of a hassle.

Meanwhile, the troubled singer chose to skip his Feb. 14 court hearing linked to his DUI arrest in Miami Beach last month so he could continue hanging out in Atlanta. His legal team will instead face the judge on his behalf, as Florida law does not require his presence in court for a misdemeanor.
