Linkin Park

Story by Jack Foley

TWO-time Grammy-winning rock band Linkin Park have teamed up with acclaimed hip-hop innovator Busta Rhymes’ for his new single We Made It.

The band ‘s co-lead vocalists Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda also appear in the song’s performance video, directed by Chris Robinson, which was shot in Los Angeles on Tuesday, April 15.

Photos from the video shoot can be found on Mike Shinoda’s website.

The intriguing culture-mashing collaboration reflects the theme of We Made It. Says Rhymes of the song: “It ain’t just about the ‘hood, it ain’t just about the suburbs, it’s about everybody. This is one of those songs that can’t be described better than touching the souls of the common people.”

We Made It, produced by Cool and Dre, with additional production by Mike Shinoda, and its video will be released in May, prior to the debut of Rhymes’ eighth studio album, Blessed (Flipmode/Aftermath/Interscope), on June 17, 2008.

Rhymes will also join Linkin Park for several spot dates on their Projekt Revolution tour this summer.

While We Made It marks Rhymes’ first teaming with a rock band, Linkin Park previously crossed genres when the group partnered with Jay-Z in 2004 for the platinum mash-up Collision Course, a No.1 pop album that featured the digital gold, Grammy winning track Numb/Encore.

Linkin Park bring Projekt Revolution to the UK for the FIRST time ever this summer, at Milton Keynes Bowl on June 29, 2008 for two blistering performances. Find out more or buy tickets
