The Young Money-Cash Money family is getting bigger by the day. Fresh off signing Christina Milian, the famed hip-hop label has added Limp Bizkit to its roster and is possibly working with Ashanti.
Lil Wayne called into “Kissing After Dark” on New York’s 98.7 Kiss FM, the R&B radio station he listened to while serving time at Rikers Island in 2010, where he announced the rock band’s affiliation with Cash Money Records.
“As far as Cash Money, they’re always listening and looking at acts, so honestly, it’s like every other day I hear about somebody new just signed to Cash Money,” Weezy told host Lenny Green. “The other day I just found out Limp Bizkit signed to Cash Money. So they’re signing everybody and everybody’s getting a chance.”
Frontman Fred Durst confirmed the news on Twitter. “Rock shit doesn’t rock anymore! They say the whole game done went pop so I’m back in this ho! #CMLB,” he tweeted.
The Young Money CEO also dropped another bombshell, revealing that Ashanti may be getting down with the YMCMB camp. “I don’t wanna step across any boundaries, but I think we’re working with Ashanti right now,” he shared.
Ashanti launched her own label Written Entertainment last year and is currently promoting her single “The Woman You Love” featuring Cash Money signee Busta Rhymes.
