    Linkin Park feat. Rakim – Guilty All The Same

    guilty-all-the-same

     

    So yesterday I was listening to Rakim’s “Guess Who’s Back” and thought the Hip-Hop Game needed some new Rakim joints and today Linkin Park decides to drop their new single, Guilty All The Same, featuring the 18th letter. Check out what Mike Shinoda has to say about the collab:

    “The reason we went with this single first is that we think it’s a good look into the DNA of the record that we’re putting out this summer. (Rakim)That’s like one of my idols. If you get into the nitty-gritty of his rhyme pattern and the topic in this song, it’s bananas what he is doing. He’s on the some Steve Vai shit vocally.”
