Birdman, Slim and Fred Durst Discuss Limp Bizkit Deal

(AllHipHop News) Cash Money Records founders Bryan and Ronald Williams recently discussed the growing roster of artists signed to Cash Money Records.

Last week, the label announced they had signed Grammy nominated rock band Limp Bizkit to Cash Money/YMCMB Records.

Limp Bizkit has already sold over 33 million albums worldwide and toured the globe.

“The Cash Money Records and YMCMB family continues to grow and work in various music genres as shown by the addition of Limp Bizkit,” Bryan “Birdman” Williams told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “We have always admired how they have been able to blend rock and Hip-Hop and will bring a unique sound to the label.”

Limp Bizkit is wasting no time getting to work, now that they have signed to the famed label, which was founded in 1991 in New Orleans.

“As both an artist and someone who has signed artists, I can say without a doubt that Cash Money is at the top of their game,” Fred Durst said. “What attracted me to the label is not only their great taste and hustle, but their belief in their artists and the family atmosphere. Slim and Birdman allow their artists to be themselves and encourage creative output and continued development. I look forward to bringing my vision as a director as well as my voice to the label and to Limp Bizkit putting out some of our best music to date.”

According to Ronald “Slim” Williams, the group is currently in Miami recording at the Hit Factory their inaugural Cash Money Records release.

“We are excited to see the work and collaborations that come from the entire Cash Money family with the addition of Limp Bizkit,” says Slim.

Cash Money Records has evolved into a powerhouse label, with major acts on the roster.

Artists include Lil Wayne, Birdman, Nicki Minaj, DJ Khaled, Drake, Tyga, Busta Rhymes, Limp Bizkit, Cool & Dre, Jay Sean, Kevin Rudloff, Mack Maine, Mystikal and others.

    might not be a fan of a lot of the music that comes out..but from a bizness standpoint, cant be mad at ymcmb

  • I forsee an aftermath situation. They will drop many people due to not being able to evenly give attention to all projects. Remember I said this. Busta rhymes I kind of lost respect for. He sat on Aftermath along with eve, pharoah monch, rakim, and countless others who just sat there. Birdman smokes too much weed. He is moving too fast making decisions that don’t make sense. That shit distorts your reality thinking you are more in control than what reality says. He thinks because he made hits with wanye and drake all of sudden now the money says mixed with smoked out thoughts makes him Sony. It will be a disaster. Mystical hasn’t done any big features yet.

      Birdman diversifies too much. Didn’t he have some oil company for like 2 months?

        You act like thats a bad thing. I bet thats longer than you had one… Plus he’s trying to be the first hiphop mogul to reach a Billion. He’s sure not going to get there just off of Wayne, Drake, & Nicki’s album sales and concerts alone. There’s no such thing as “Diversifing too much”.

      • Big Ice Bastardman ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

         Since you seem like you’re new to this whole “business” thing, you should probably go have a look at Bad Boy Records to see what happens when someone wants to diversify too much, and see what happens to the musicians.

      • record labels sign artists on the daily because they know that 9 times out of 10, because how the game continues to change, not every artist they sign is going to sell. So it’s actually smart in a sense to sign multiple acts.

         We’re not talking acts, though. That’s the thing. I don’t think Baby sees himself as a record exec. I think he sees himself as a businessman, or a hustler. As a hustler, he wants to do all sorts of shit. It’s when these moguls get into fragerences and clubs and all that, that it goes downhill. Jay felt it with Rocawear and 40/40. He did so much he couldn’t manage any one thing to its full potential. It happens all the time, and it’s not exclusive to hip hop either.

      I think lil wayne is the one that smokes too much weed. Birdman is actually very business savvy. If you knew anything about business you’d know that the average successful millionaire entrepreneur files for bankruptcy 3 times before they become successful. Yes even Bill Gated filed 4 times and I don’t think he smoked weed at all. I don’t think Birdman has ever filed tho, think on that. Now ask yourself this, If you knew that only 1 out of every 5 talented musical artist will ever be successful, and you can afford to work with them all, are you more likely to produce a successful artist by working with them all and giving them all a chance? Or will your chances greater by trying to guess and picking just one of them?… My point Exactly! I’m sure he knows that not all of these artist are going to be wildly successful. But it doesn’t hurt to give them a chance and if it doesn’t work out then so be it. But at least all of these artist already have a fan base and a following, which helps his other artist get their work heard by a totally new audience by doing features. Its genius if you ask me. Now looking at it this way, does it make a little more sense now, or do you think I smoke too much weed too? 

      By the way… don’t be surprised if they are trying to create a roster that can produce a totally in-house tour. Without  any other artist from any other label performing in attempt to keep all of the revenue generated from their concerts inside YMCMB pockets. This means more mulah for everyone in-house. They are not far from it.

  • I will neva speak bad about baby in any same form or fashion.  Im pretty sure he has a plan.  Im excited to see were it goes….

  • rep87

    Its amazing Busta has been around for a long time and he cant run his on label you old enough to be your own boss instead he would rather continue to work for someone and get ripped off because thats what baby do, second go round for Busta ,DR DRE couldnt get you own and he one of the best producers in the game, i dont see this working either / Limp Bizkit maybe able to spark something again but once they start to see baby playing with the money they will bounce they must have been turn down by major white labels they wouldnt gamble so baby picked them up may work out no one has done it since Dr Dre did it big with Eminem and DRE was able to retire behind that deal only problem Fred aint no Eminem !

  • jordan tyrell
