Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne and Cash Money’s Limp Bizkit‘s long-awaited “Ready to Go” single has finally premiered online nearly a year after its title was announced.
The hard-hitting track premiered online late Sunday (March 24) night.
Just a week after rumors began to swirl that the band would be touring stateside without DJ Lethal later this Spring, a new single from Limp Bizkit has found its way online. Streamed in its entirety for the first time since being teased over a year ago, “Ready To Go,” is the long-gestating single that features a guest appearance from Young Money mastermind Lil Wayne. The track is an all-out party rock song, and it often makes reference to the fact most rock music sucks these days. Then again, it follows this declaration with a guest verse from a hip hop megastar so…..yea. I don’t know what to make of that. (Under the Gun Review)
Weezy F. Baby appears in top-notch form as he enters the track mid-way through and rips his verse.
“What the f*ck is up,” Wayne raps, “F*ck the world, bust a n*t/I’m on, this and that, such and such/It’s ashes to ashes, dust to dust/Come on, rock, rock, rock with a real n*gga/Everything I touch turn to gold, she a gold digger/Shots, shots, shots, have a little liquor/I got the b*tch taking shots like Reggie Miller/Uh, Lil Weezy in this b*tch h*e, she want the green light, let the b*tch go/I go hard, I go nuts…” (“Ready to Go”)
Initial plans were for “Ready to Go” to officially premiere online a year ago.
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 couple days prior, Cash Money boss Birdman stressed the importance of thier joint record gaining widespread attention.
“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)
