Five Reasons We Can't Wait For New Limp Bizkit

Limp Bizkit's first release for Cash Money Records remains on the horizon for 2012, and we can't wait to hear it.
Teaming up with YMCMB, Fred Durst and Co. are rightfully primed to blow up modern hip hop and heavy metal. It's a partnership that makes perfect sense creatively. Lil Wayne's always had an affinity for rock music, and Cash Money continues to expand its sphere of influence into other genres seamlessly. Now, they're collectively sitting on the cusp of something revolutionary.
No one is kicking out the rap rock jams properly anymore, and this is a welcome reprieve for both genres.
Here are ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino's reasons for excitement over new Limp Bizkit.
Limp Bizkit is only getting heavier as the years go by. 2011's Gold Cobra wielded some of guitarist Wes Borland's wildest riffs. He thrashed with a tight intensity that fueled the tunes flawlessly, and if it's a sequel to The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1) that we're getting, we're in for a real treat. Boasting longer, angrier fare, The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1) was one of Bizkit's best, and this is bound to be the rage-filled epic we all need.
Cash Money Records knows how to operate in every world. Given the label's success blowing up Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Tyga, and countless other across the board, this is the perfect platform for Limp Bizkit to once again take the fuck over. Birdman and Slim run the label brilliantly, and they'll spearhead this proper...
Any collaborations between Fred Durst and Lil Wayne would be sick. Durst's flow has always been airtight, and Weezy's just a monster. Bizkit has always smoothly incorporated rappers whether it be Method Man or Snoop Dogg, and Lil Wayne's got the gusto to elevate everything to a whole new plateau altogether.
Limp Bizkit always slays live. Since day one, Limp Bizkit has always been one of the genre's most exciting live acts. With Cash Money in toe, we can expect some even bigger and better stages than ever before.
Attitude has been missing from rock for far too long. Don't you miss those badass motherfuckers who had no fear of putting up a middle finger and doing whatever they pleased? Limp Bizkit embody that classic spirit, and that's why they owned. It's why they'll conquer again too.
