Jay-Z, who's collaborated with nearly every big name in music — from Beyoncé and Foxy to Beanie and Biggie — has added another team effort to his repertoire. The Roc-A-Fella rapper hit a New York studio on Tuesday with Fred Durst and DJ Lethal of Limp Bizkit.
Durst is thinking about calling the track "Rebels," according to a post on the Bizkit Web site, www.limpbizkit.com. It's not yet known where, when or how the result of the collaboration will surface — if at all. A previous Bizkit collabo, with Eminem on a cover of Loverboy's "Turn Me Loose," never did, after it was purported to be a track for Limp's 1999 LP, Significant Other.
Durst was clearly impressed with Jay-Z's skills on the mic, especially Jay's gift for not writing down his lyrics before he records them.
"He is unbelievable!" Durst informed his fans on the Web site. "He didn't write down one single word. He just listen(s) to the beat over and over while scheming in his brain, then, only moments later, Jay got on the mic and blasted out an amazing ryme (sic)."
Meanwhile, Durst is still deciding on the first single for Bipolar, which is being mixed for a May 13 release date. The previously confirmed choice, "Crack Addict," has since been scrapped.
