While Kanye West had little more to say than “LOL” when Cash Money Records announced that they had signed Limp Bizkit last week, the jury is still out on whether or not the union will result in general LOLs or if the pairing will see a reaping of greater rewards. Not wasting any time, Lil Wayne will be releasing a new collaborative single with Limp Bizkit next week, entitled “Ready To Go.” The title itself seems to be a pointed message about their new relationship, and we’re expecting some high energy, aggressive rap-rock.
The track will be the first Cash Money release by Limp Bizkit, and the label’s founder, Birdman, says “It’ll be a great way to let the world know that [the band] is a part of us… It’s rock, but it’s hip-hop-rock. I think we got that hip-hop-rock swagger.” Of the controversial signing, Birdman went on to say, “Limp Bizkit, to me, is just a perfect match for us… It was something that [Durst] was interested in doing, and I was already a fan, and I was like, ‘Let’s do it.’ It’s good for the brand, it will bring a different look for us, and we’re definitely trying to expand on that side of music.” Luckily, we won’t have to wait long to see if this really is a match made in heaven!
