Limp Bizkit's much-ballyhooed relationship with the rap label Cash Money Records has proved to be short-lived.
The rap-rockers released a pair of singles with Cash Money -- "Ready To Go" with flagship artist Lil Wayne and "Thieves" -- but has since parted ways, amicably, according to frontman Fred Durst.
Durst tells us that, "Well, right now, Cash Money, we're just really close friends with those guys. We had a fun experience working with them and being with them. Limp Bizkit is independent right now...Those guys are at the top of their game and they're very busy and they're just crushing everything. With Limp Bizkit, we're sort of, we're kind of our own little satellite cruising around, and we just decided it was gonna be best for us to keep it tight and get everything done ourselves. That's just the path we decided to take. We really love the jam we did with Lil Wayne, though. We love that song."
Limp Bizkit is currently working on finishing its next album, "Stampede of the Disco Elephants," for release in 2015 along with a 20th anniversary celebration of the group's formation. The band is currently on a North American tour that wraps up October 12 in Silver Spring, Md., and will also play Knotfest Japan on November 15 in Chiba.
