Mike Shinoda Creates Trap-Inspired Hanukkah Song During Twitch Livestream

It's been a few months since Mike Shinoda released his latest album, Dropped Frames Vol. 3, but that doesn't mean he's stopped making music. The Linkin Park co-founder still hosts Twitch livestreams every weekday from 10am-12pm PT, and during his latest session Shinoda created a trap-inspired Hanukkah song that he aptly titled "Trap Kletzmer [sic]," referring to the musical tradition of Ashkenazi Jews in Eastern Europe called Klezmer.

"The challenge today on Twitch was to make a #hanukkah song," the producer wrote on Instagram. "Here’s where I ended up (we called it Trap Kletzmer 😂) Happy Hanukkah everybody ❤️"

Shinoda also shared the same clip "on TikTok for people to sing/dance/play to."

See Shinoda's post below.

Shinoda's not the only artist celebrating the festival of lights with music. Since Hanukkah began on December 10, Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters producer Greg Kurstin have promised to release a cover from a Jewish artist on each of the holiday's eight nights. So far, they've put their spin on the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage," Mountain's "Mississippi Queen," Peaches' "F**k The Pain Away," Bob Dylan's "Rain Day Women #12 & 35," and even Drake's "Hotline Bling."

Hanukkah ends on December 18, and we can't wait to see what else is in store.
