Justin Bieber needs to rap on his next album.

On Thursday, the 17-year-old singer dropped by the Hot 97 studios in New York, delivering rhymes just two weeks after pulling the same stunt at a Los Angeles radio station.

Bieber, who was in town for the Pencils of Promise charity event, impresses once again with his rap skills, referencing Michael Jordan, Ferris Bueller and the Canadian coffee and donut chain Tim Hortons.

Number one hits, I got number one flicks, and the number one kicks and the number one chicks, Bieber spits at one point.

People in their basement say I didn't even write this / People say I'm white so I couldn't do it like this / Checks like Nike lemme give you a goodnight kiss / well I'm a little bit sick of it, he raps at another.

The same morning, Bieber also appeared on the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, and while he didn't rap, the young singer opened up about the Mariah Yeater paternity suit that was dropped earlier this week.

As far as the whole baby situation, it's unfortunate that it had to happen like that. That people make false accusations, but things happen in this industry and you just have to keep your head high and be positive and that's all I really have to say, he told Duran and company.

They say that any press is good press, I do not believe that's true. At the end of the day, if you're in the spotlight, then people are looking at you as a role model . . . if you're doing bad things to get press, I think that's really really sad, Bieber added.

Bieber's longtime manager, Scooter Braun, also shared his thoughts on the paternity suit.

Bottom line is that they said they'll have settlement talks with us and the only thing I'm gonna say is they will never be in settlement talks with us, we will never settle with them. That's my little guy right there, I protect him. And they messed with the wrong crew. It's false, Braun said on the radio show.

On Friday, Bieber took to Twitter to respond to the positive reaction to his most recent rap performance.

like I said...I rap for fun...but me and @UsherRaymondIV do this for real, Bieber wrote, adding a plug for his latest album, Under The Mistletoe.

Last week, Under The Mistletoe became the latest Bieber album to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, also becoming only the eight holiday album in Billboard history to reach the top spot.

The Christmas album features Bieber collaborating with The Band Perry, Boyz II Men, Mariah Carey and others.

Bieber's third studio album, tentatively titled Believe, is due in 2012.
