Justin Bieber can vouch for Kanye West….

In XXL’s upcoming July/August 2011 issue, the Biebs spoke on working with Yeezy in the studio and how he is generally a good guy.

Peep below to see what all the teenage pop star had to say:

“I got to be in the studio with him and work with him and see how he works and talk to him—and talk to him as a friend, and not like someone [in] business. He’s not really an asshole like everyone makes him out to be. I mean, he can, he can do bad things, but he’s really generally a good guy. He can make bad decisions, you know, as well as everyone can, but generally I think he is a good guy.”

Last summer, Bieber was the first person Kanye followed after joining Twitter…..which later sparked  their “Runaway Love” remix collaboration featuring Raekwon.

It seems these two hit it off pretty well!
