Durst Bashes Borland In Song, On Blog

Bizkit has been off the radar since last year, when its Borland-featuring EP, "The Unquestionable Truth Pt. 1," was released to dismal sales.
Durst strikes back in a minute-long song called "Unacceptableinterlude," which features such lyrics as "Stop making plans to manipulate fans and finally stick to something you believe / 'Cause you had us all fooled and, I'll admit, even me / Manipulating like a crook who's arrestable / It's unacceptable, f***ing unacceptable."
Borland responded on Black Light Burns' Myspace page, admitting, "After years and years of dealing with each other, it seems that Fred and I still have not figured out how to keep it positive. I'm to blame, he's to blame. It sucks. We never talk. So, it's hard to ever know what's really going on." He added, "I still have zero plans to work with [Limp Bizkit] in the future, but anything is possible."
Meanwhile, Durst said he is at work on "The Unquestionable Truth Pt. 2," which will include "songs that me and Ross Robinson produced with Wes on guitar as well as songs that do not have Wes on guitar. It will be a full-length album and not an EP. It will be on the more aggressive side of nature and appeal to those who feed off of the heavier side of Limp Bizkit."
Durst also promised a tour in support of the album but gave no timetable or details on who might replace Borland moving forward. "I can sleep at night knowing that I have and will never sell out and make music or do my vocals for any reason other than my soul needing to express itself through my art," he said.
