DJ Lethal has rejoined LIMP BIZKIT after apologizing to the band for launching a public feud that began in April and lasted several months.
Earlier this year, DJ Lethal went on a Twitter tirade, writing, “I hate assholes that judge me for leaving a ‘band’ I was in for 15 years. You’re like a fucking moose that got lucky!!
“Fuck [LIMP BIZKIT frontman] Fred Durst. I was talented and was an artist [long] before [you] even knew who Fred was.
“If [you’re] gonna be a wigger, then do your homework. HOUSE OF PAIN, bitch!”
Last week, DJ Lethal once again took to Twitter to “clear the air about LIMP BIZKIT.” He said, “I have had some personal issues over the last few years that have led to some outbursts. A lot of the things I said about the band and Fred was out of pain and anger. None of which I really meant deep down inside. So I think I owe it to Fred, Wes [Borland, guitar], Sam [Rivers, bass] and John [Otto, drums] and the fans to really admit the truth.
“I had some problems. Be it partying on the road. Talking shit when I was drunk and causing internal conflicts. Today is the day that I can finally be a man and step up and say I’m sorry.
“The rants are done. And were really embarrassing.
“I think the guys in the band were actually looking out. I really needed a wakeup call. So to finally come clean is really hard, but the weight of the world on my shoulders is even harder to carry around.
“I’m in a great place now and want to thank everyone who had my back through the dark times. So to all the fans and the band. I really was fucked up for a while. I’m sorry. Fred and the band are great people. We’re all human. All love!!
“Feels great to finally step up to the plate.
“I hope we can resolve our issues because I miss my friends and band mates. FC Ty for his help. The guys in our band are true gentlemen. Giving me a second chance after the stupid shit I talked and the way I acted really shows class. LBF Now it’s time to step up to the plate and I’m hitting this ball out of the park. I was wondering how it would [feel] to be back. AMAZING! Grateful.”
In his latest tweet, Lethal stated that he would be hitting the studio with BIZKIT today (Monday, October 15) to write songs for their upcoming album.
