Still scratching your head and wondering what in the world made Lil Wayne announce Birdman and Slim’s signing of 90’s rock-rap hybrid band Limp Bizkit to Cash Money? We are too. In a recent interview with XXL, Baby explains how this awkwardly awkward sounding connection came about.
“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.”
