Lil Wayne says Cash Money has signed rap-rockers Limp Bizkit. During a phone call with New York's 98.7 KissFM Thursday night, the rapper revealed the label is on a spending spree – they're reportedly on the verge of inking Ashanti, too – following recent success with acts including Drake and Nicki Minaj.

Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst later confirmed the signing with a series of tweets ("The game is missing danger, electricity and rock n roll!!!! Cash Money Limp Bizkit").

The band's most recent album, Gold Cobra, a reunion with guitarist Wes Borland, peaked last year at Number 16 on the Billboard chart.
