Newly signed Cash Money Records artist Fred Durst recently opened up on his rap-metal crew Limp Bizkit linking with Birdman's ever-growing team and what people can expect from their Lil Wayne-assisted "Ready to Go" single.
Durst said while their new record is completed, it still needs a few minor modifications.
"I want to get it out there soon, as soon as we can," Durst, who finished an Australian tour with Limp Bizkit during the weekend, told Billboard.com. "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." (Billboard)
The rocker also said fans can likely put their wallets away and cop the record for Free-99 upon its premiere.
Once it's finished, Durst said the plan for "Ready to Go" will likely be free Internet distribution. "We want to let everybody know this is just an introduction, just a taste of what throwing these two dudes together for five minutes can do," he explained. "Now that we're living together, now that we're married, we'll see what happens when we start doing more. I'm very excited." (Billboard)
Their record was expected to premiere some time 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.

Recently, Birdman said Limp Bizkit's induction was supposed to be announced at last month's Grammy Awards.
"Fred [Durst] reached out, bruh," Birdman said in an interview. "I was already a fan of him. When the opportunity came, we really was supposed to announce it at the Grammys. [Lil] Wayne was going to announce it at the Grammys, but he did it when he felt like it. ... He's a visionary, he a great artist. Also, I want him to be a part of our staff and take over the rock department and bring us over more talent because that's what he does. I think with having Limp he brings a lot." (XXL Mag)
