Busta Rhymes teamed up with the rock band in a song called 'We Made It' and has shot the video in L.A..
More and more clash of genres are brought up to the surface these days. Rapper Busta Rhymes has nabbed a collaboration with rock group Linkin Park to do a song called "We Made It" that will appear on Rhymes' new set, "Blessed" as the first single. The track itself is a joint production between Cool & Dre and Linkin Park's DJ, Mike Shinoda.
Not only that, a video has been shot for the single in Los Angeles on Tuesday, April 15 with director Chris Robinson. However, from Linkin Park's camp, only Shinoda and vocalist Chester Bennington will appear on the video. No premiere date has been set up yet.
Speaking on the song, Rhymes commented, "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." The album is due June 17 via Flipmode/Aftermath/Interscope and has spawned a club single called "Don't Touch Me (Throw Da Water on 'Em)".
This would not be the first collaboration with a rapper for Linkin Park. In 2004 they teamed up with Jay-Z to release "Collision Course" that went to #1 on Billboard Hot 200 chart.
