Limp Bizkit signs to Cash Money

Just when you thought to ask where are Fred Durst and Limp Bizkit, Lil’ Wayne came through with an answer.

In a recent interview with New York’s 98.7 KissFM’s DJ Lenny Green, the multi-platinum-selling rapper and Young Money president was asked about all of Young Money and Cash Money’s recent signings, admitting he can’t keep up himself.

“Every other day I hear about somebody new just signed to Cash Money,” Wayne said before announcing the latest member of the Young Money/Cash Money roster.

“The other day I just found Limp Bizkit signed to Cash Money, so they’re signing everybody.”

Indeed they are.

Cash Money CEO and founder Brian “Birdman” Williams has been busy bringing everyone from Busta Rhymes to Ashanti into the YMCMB (Young Money & Cash Money Billionaires) family, but a play for rock-rap group Limp Bizkit seemed to have a lot of folks scratching their heads - except for frontman Fred Durst.

“The game is missing danger, electricity, and rock n roll!!!! Cash Money Limp Bizkit,” Durst tweeted to his million-plus followers, seemingly confirming Wayne’s radio comments. Durst responded to both negative and positive feedback with hashtags like, "#YMCMBizkit."

“Rock s*** doesn’t rock anymore,” read another Durst post. “They say the whole game done went pop so I’m back in this h-! #CMLB”

What do you guys think? Is Limp Bizkit signing to Cash Money a good move?

    When Ashanti was 14, she was discovered by P.Diddy's Bad Boy Records. Initially, she went to Bad Boy Records and sang one of Mary J. Blige's songs in front of P.Diddy and Biggie Smalls. After being impressed by her singing ability, Diddy had her sign to a development deal. In the end, due to a bad contract, Ashanti did not sign with Diddy. This ultimately led to a record deal with Jive Records in 1994.'

    Not sure how you guys don't understand.Gold Cobra was ready to come out last year. It didn't bcesuae the bands major US tour got put off. thats the only reason we didnt get the album. The US is the largest market for album sales, the label would never let the band release their album before being set for a Major US Tour.Thats why we will see the album this summer, as they are touring the US. The one benifit of this delay is that the band has been aloowed more time to improve the album as they please.Be patient. Theyre was no choice by the band. when they tour the US, the album will either be out or come out during the tour

      Im dubious that anyone who even remembers Limp Bizkit would care enough to buy the album.

    Lets just say with my experience working with the label, its likely a deal for a few singles and if the first one doesn't bring heat they will get benched next to all the other acts they don't even acknowledge but still gave them contracts. Baby is a collector, nuff said

    Young Money is a joke. They're NOT Billionaires like they claim to be. My question. If what they say they're doing isn't valid, what else about Young Money is also not valid? Lil Wayne is garbage. We all know the talent in mainstream music is completely on the engineer side of things and not at all the artist anymore. Limp Bizkit is another artist stuck in intellectual kindergarten and wanted that signing bonus from YM real quick. I see Young Money/Cash Money as being the 2007-2010 label. New talent is on the rise. For Example:

    Ghettoist? Anyway, Counterfeit is still my favoite song. Chocolate Starfish is the last whole album I listened to. Then I grew up, turned my cap back around, got a haircut, & a job.

      i am forwarding this to evrnyoee i know (one of the IMPORTANT emails that should be read) in the past i have tried some of these methods and i know they are the best tool for more productivity but checking your email is like an addiction who emailed me, what's going on etc. Perhaps i need a Emails Anononomis support group :)what i do find is that i end up spending more time trying to figure the email out than actually fulfilling it. my rule of thumb if it's more than one para i CALL the person (!!) and talk the issue or task over with them.thanks for a great post!

    Agreed. Cash Money is an abomination.

    Typical CM lyrics, "Yo aw yeah! Im so paid! B¡tches n høs be on me!"
    Seriously the ghettoist half intelligible ODB rhyme sounds like it was written by a Harvard professor compared to the autotuned garbage CM puts out.

    Too many kids these days don't even know what good music is anymore. I only listen to EDM at this point, mostly older stuff of that too, can't stand where rock and hip hop have gone for the most part. I thought it was bad back in the 90s but its gone even more downhill.

    Well, Gold Cobra wasnt that bad of an album actually. It's very similar to Significan Other, which shows that they are capable of making decent songs when they have all the group memebers together... so signing cash money isn't so bad.

      Gold Cobra leaked tkcras sounded like the biggest load of CHEESEY POP NU METAL ever. So hopefully their completely switching it up, otherwise no one will take them seriously. ONE FOR THE TREBLE, TWO FOR THE BASS, LETS ROCK THIS PLACE , or watever it is, OH DEAR.CSATHFW was acceptable, but thts just going too far.Sort it out LB, Iiked the direction u were going with TUTP1. Though it got a weak review from Kerrang, no doubt, when Gold Cobra drops, they'll give it a decent review, just coz theyll be averagely popular again. God I hate that magazine.

    A pathetic band no one remembers, and a rapper that has one of the worst voices in the world glorifying all the wrong things to the world, great.

    Music is dead as a whole.
