Durst says of his collaborator, “He is unbelievable. He didn’t write down one single word. He just listen (sic) 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 ryme (sic)! (sic) He is truly a chosen one. He has a gift like no one else I’ve ever worked with.”

Durst is currently in New York mixing the metal band’s first album in three years with Nirvana
