Cash Money head Bryan "Birdman" Williams shared the details of how rap-metal band Limp Bizkit wound up signing with his label last week. While the band is a few years removed from its late 90s heyday, Birdman had nothing but positives for the signing and the band's comeback potential.
“Fred [Durst] reached out, bruh,” Birdman told XXL. “It was weird how it happened. He was like, ‘Stunna, what’s good?’ I was like, ‘What’s poppin, 5?’ [Fred said] ‘I wanna join the team.’ Whoa! For real? He didn’t have to say it twice. I was already a fan of him. When the opportunity came, we really was supposed to announce it at the Grammys. 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,” Birdman said of Durst. “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."
