Limp Bizkit have announced that they are jumping into bed with Nicki Minaj. In a business sense, that is. The Jacksonville quintet has reportedly signed to the Cash Money label - home to the pink-wigged wonder that is Minaj. The Cash Money Records' lynchpin Lil' Wayne broke the news on a radio show last night (February 23, 2012) and Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst later appeared to confirm the news.
LIL' WAYNE telephoned into Lenny Green's 'Kissing After Dark,' and was introduced to listeners by Green as "one of the most respected rap artists in the game." LIL' WAYNE told Lenny Green and his listeners that he discovered the radio show when he was incarcerated. He then went on to say "I just found out Limp Bizkit signed to Cash Money," adding "they're signing everybody." LIL' WAYNE also tentatively announced that the thinks the label is also working with the R&B singer Ashanti.
Limp Bizkit's frontman Fred Durst then seemed to confirm the news in a series of cryptic tweets, one of which read "The game is missing danger, electricity, and rock n roll!!!!" Cash Money Limp Bizkit" and another saying "Rock shit doesn't rock anymore! They say the whole game done went pop so I'm back in this ho! Cmlb." The last album release from Limp Bizkit was in 2010, when they reunited with guitarist Wes Borland to release Gold Cobra, which peaked at number 16 on the Billboard chart.
