One is a rapper who, love it or hate it, tried his hand at rock. The other is a rock group (or nu-metal, if you will) which spends a lot of time rapping. Both like red hats and have names beginning with ‘L’. Thus it makes perfect sense that, as NME reports, Lil Wayne has laid down a rap for a track off Limp Bizkit’s upcoming, oft-delayed fifth release, Gold Cobra. See, Fred Durst still has hip-hop friends.
The de-facto leader of Limp Bizkit, Durst tweeted, Oh, excuse me, 16th song mixed is Ready to Go featuring Lil Wayne! GFY! I love it. The album, originally set for a June 2010 release, still lacks a release date, though Durst hopes to see it out by summers end. Fans or not, with this unlikely (or is it perfectly likely? GFY!) collaboration, people will certainly be awaiting this track, if not the album. Youre excused, Mr. Durst.
Other confirmed appearance on Gold Cobra include Raekwon and an album-intro voiceover by Gene Simmons. The album also marks the first recorded with original guitarist Wes Borland since his initial departure back in 2001. Stay tuned for an official release date, and with any luck a listen to Ready to Go. For now, you can check out some previously revealed album tracks.
