Lil Wayne And Limp Bizkit Will Drop A New Single, “Ready To Go,” Next Week

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!

Limp Bizkit Sign To Cash Money, Lil Wayne Says Ashanti Could Be Next

And you thought rap-rock was over! In an interview with Kiss FM, Lil Wayne talked about his time in prison and revealed some pretty interesting news, including a tid-bit that Limp Bizkit has signed to Cash Money records. Limp Bizkit are no strangers to the hip hop world, already with songs including “N Together Now” featuring Method Man and the “Rollin’” remix featuring Method Man, Redman and DMX. It will be interesting to see if the rap-rock craze of the early ’00s kicks off again — we don’t see why not, it’s a genre that hasn’t yet had its mainstream renaissance.

Another exciting piece of news came as Lil Wayne also revealed that Ashanti might be joining the Cash Money family. Yep, so you won’t ever have to say things like, “What ever happened to Ashanti?” or, “I miss Ashanti” or, “What’s Luv?” ever again. We’d love to see the diva with some of her own new tracks and yep, in one of the roles we love her best for: super sweet r’n’b vocals featured as the chorus to rap songs about love.
