Earlier this week, DurstAlthough he's still deciding which track will be the first single from Limp Bizkit's upcoming album, "Bipolar," group frontman Fred Durst is already working on other material. Earlier this week, Durst was joined in a New York studio by rapper Jay-Z, who laid down lyrics for a track Durst says he may name "Rebels."
"He didn't write down one single word," Durst boasted of Jay-Z's skills on Limp Bizkit's official Web site. "He just listen[ed] to the beat over and over while scheming something in his brain. Then, only moments later, Jay got on the mic and blasted out an amazing r[h]yme! He has a gift like no one else I've ever worked with." Durst did not reveal his plans for releasing the track.
The artist said that although "Bipolar," due May 13 from Flip/Interscope, is "almost finished being mixed," he is "really having a hard time picking the f***ing single. How do I unleash this beast? What a hard decision. There are so many different ways to go. Each way touches different people and I don't want to alienate anyone."
As previously reported, Limp Bizkit will support "Bipolar" on the Summer Sanitarium tour with Metallica and Linkin Park, among others. The trek kicks off July 4 in Pontiac, Mich.
