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 ago, Cash Money boss Birdman stressed the importance of thier 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)
Recently, Bird 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)
Last week, 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)
