"For 2021, I wanted to find a way to give back to my amazing community online. I’m looking for voclaists [sic], rappers, and songwriters who need help getting to the next level," the Linkin Park emcee wrote at the time. "If I find someone great, I’ll produce their track, live on my Twitch channel. There’s no formal contest, just an intention."
"The fans on Twitch will help me find the right vocalists. my only 'rules' are 1.) I’m not doing vocals, 2.) I’d like the artist to only contribute vocals and one instrument, nothing filled-out, just the 'song,' and 3.) no back-seat producing, the track has to be in my hands until I feel like I’m done. If you want to participate, go talk to the fans on Twitch.tv/OfficialMikeShinoda"
Shinoda's "AnRmy" didn't disappoint, and he recently shared two sessions on his YouTube channel: Chris Kelly's "Bittersweet" and Alex McMillan's "BONES." You can watch both below.
As mentioned in the announcement, this isn't a contest, which means the producer is still looking for tracks to flesh out. Those who are interested can get their songs seen by using the hashtag #ShinodaProduceMe.
