The record label behind Lil Wayne, Drake, and Nicki Minaj has just signed Limp Bizkit, the Fred Durst-led rock/rap/screaming group best known for launching the “angry red baseball cap” look back in 1999. Wayne confirmed the deal last night during a radio interview; Durst then jumped on Twitter to share thoughts like “The game is missing danger, electricity, and rock n roll!!!! Cash Money Limp Bizkit” and “Rock shit doesn’t rock anymore!” There are also rumors that Ashanti might join the label. Meanwhile, Vulture wonders whether the only requirement for joining Cash Money is the willingness to show up at random karaoke bars and perform your own song? That’s our best explanation so far.
