Lil Wayne and Limp Bizkit will release a new collaborative single called "Ready to Go" next week. The song is the first Limp Bizkit have recorded since signing to Cash Money, Lil Wayne's longtime label. "It'll be a great way to let the world know that [the band] is a part of us," Cash Money founder Birdman told Billboard. "It's rock, but it's hip-hop-rock. I think we got that hip-hop-rock swagger."
Limp Bizkit's deal with Cash Money was announced last week, leading many to wonder why the popular rap label was going into business with the rap-metal band who peaked commercially in the late Nineties with hits like "Nookie" and "Break Stuff." "Limp Bizkit, to me, is just a perfect match for us," said Birdman. "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."
