Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst Talks Collaboration With Lil Wayne
Regarding ‘Ready to Go,’ the new collaborative track with Lil Wayne, Durst tells Billboard, “The song is already done for the most part. I’ve got a couple little things I might poke around or punch in on my verse. And I want their guys to take a crack at the mix. I mixed it myself; I think it sounds very big, but I really love the way their guys are mixing stuff, so I want to see what they can do with it.”
He goes on to express his enthusiasm about ‘Ready to Go’ by saying, “It sounds like a monster; it literally sounds dangerous,” Durst exulted. “It sounds like that left of center, that place of discomfort that created rock ‘n’ roll, created the (heavy) metal, where it all spawned from.”
The Limp Bizkit frontman also dishes on the band’s upcoming tracks which will most likely be released on an EP titled ‘The Unquestionable Truth, Part 2’ via the band’s new home, Cash Money Records.
Durst calls the forthcoming EP “the heaviest, most crazy metal record of all time.” He goes on to say, “That will service our core and counter balance these big, fat, ginormous hip-rock songs we’re going to do (with the Cash Money camp).”
“We’re gonna give out some mayhem and madness … to those people who really lean that way with us.” Durst states that the collaboration with the Cash Money camp “has enabled me to make my rock music in a hip-hop fashion.” Go to Billboard.com to check out the full interview.
