Young Money's Lil Twist recounts his initial run-in with newly signed Cash Money rap-metal crew Limp Bizkit, admitting he initially did not recognize Fred Durst when they met face-to-face.
According to rapper Twist, Cash Money boss Birdman officially introduced the 41 year-old rocker to him.
"I just met Fred Durst the other day in Miami," Twist said in an interview. "Uncle Stunna introduced me and I just met him. I didn't even know who it was when I got in the studio. I just thought I was meeting an old man. He was like, 'Yeah, Limp Bizkit.' I was like, 'Oh my God, that's Fred Durst!' That sh*t was so crazy, he was skating around and stuff." (XXL Mag)
If all goes accordingly, Bizkit's first Cash Money record will drop this week.
Fans will not have to wait long to hear what the odd future pairing of Limp Bizkit and the YMCMB crew will sound like. A spokesperson for the home of Drake and Nicki Minaj confirmed to MTV News on Friday (March 2) that the crew will release a single online next week called "Ready to Go" featuring verses from their new labelmate Lil Wayne.

A few days ago, Birdman stressed the importance of their joint record.
"It'll be a great way to let the world know that [the band] is a part of us," says Williams. The Cash Money head says that Bizkit frontman Fred Durst joined Lil Wayne in Miami the week after the Grammy Awards to bang out the one-off single. "It's rock, but it's hip-hop-rock," says Birdman. "I think we got that hip-hop-rock swagger." (Billboard)
Last month, Durst hopped on Twitter and announced his YMCMB affiliation.
"The game is missing danger, electricity, and rock n roll!!!!" Cash Money Limp Bizkit," he tweeted Friday (February 24).
"Rock sh*t doesn't rock anymore! They say the whole game done went pop so I'm back in this ho! #CMLB" (Fred Durst's Twitter)
