Mike Shinoda & Friends
antiMusic reports: For his latest MorleyView, antiMusic's Morley Seaver spoke with Linkin Park frontman Mike Shinoda about his new solo release (Fort Minor). Here is a little bit of that interview where Mike discusses some of the special guests on the album.

antiMusic: Tell us about the special guests on the record? Why did you include them and how did they come to be on their respective cuts?

Shinoda: As you can imagine, I could have gotten together with all the big names, like the Neptunes or Timbaland, and made the album that way, put "Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park" on the cover, with a big photo of me. But I didn't want to do that. As I was making the songs, I felt like I wanted to include my friends. If you look at all the artists on the album-Black Thought, Common, John Legend, Styles of Beyond, Holly Brook, Kenna, Jonah-I think there is a lot of diversity there. I basically looked at each song and thought about what would make it better. I respect these people musically, and I knew that if I asked them to work on a song, they would understand my vision for it.[see full story for the entire interview]- Click Here for the Full Story
