Earlier this year, Snot’s Mikey Doling made headlines after calling out Limp Bizkit for taking rapper $not on tour with them. Now, during a recent interview with Rock Talks, Doling further discussed the situation, while giving Fred Durst some more choice words.
Doling said the following:
“What happened was that Limp Bizkit… First of all, they’re friends of Snot from 25 years ago. We were close with them. Lynn and Fred Durst were buddies. Then Lynn passed away. Fred‘s even on ‘Strait Up‘. And then all these years later this rapper guy comes out calling himself $not.
And I’m already, like, ‘Wait. What’s going on here?’ And unfortunately, time passed and we had one record; we weren’t quite big enough to fight him for that name. So I just kind of let it go ’cause it was a different genre of music — it’s hip-hop; he’s a black dude.
We’re a bunch of white-boy fucking rockers. I just thought [it was] two different worlds. And then all of sudden fucking Limp Bizkit is taking $not [out on tour]. I’m, like, ‘What?’ Like, taken aback, like, ‘How dare you, Fred?’
I would never do that. If Fred Durst had passed 25 years ago, we had had so much respect in Fred‘s name. And then all of a sudden Snot is now big, and we took this rapper called Limp Bizkit on tour. That would be some disrespectful shit… But I didn’t say anything yet.
But then I started getting text messages, e-mails, social media texts, IMs, ‘Hey, Snot‘s going on tour with Limp Bizkit.’ So now I’m getting frustrated because I’m trying to answer, ‘No, it’s not us.’ It’s getting really tiring. So I went on Facebook and made a post. That’s it — just a post on my personal Facebook. ‘Hey, Fred, that’s pretty fucked up you did that.’
I got mad, put my middle finger in the fucking camera — boom! It went viral from my Facebook. It goes on Blabbermouth to Loudwire to RollingStone.com — everywhere. And everybody’s calling me, like, ‘Dude, what are you starting fights with Limp Bizkit now?’ It just got blown way out of proportion.
But I will still say — fuck you, Durst, for doing it. And the rapper kid stole our fucking name. I even talked to the rapper’s manager. I went that far into this thing. And he goes, ‘Oh, I’m a big fan of Snot.’ He said, ‘I used to listen to you guys in high school.’ And now he’s managing a guy named $not. I’m, like, ‘So you knew.’ … We got no respect. We got fucked over.”
He continued when asked if he has talked to Durst:
“No, I haven’t talked to him in decades — a long time. But he knows. I’m sure he heard about what I said. He probably tells everybody he [doesn’t] care, but he knows inside that that’s fucking bullshit. Unless he’s just a shallow human, which he probably is. So, there you go.”
