Linkin Park Frontman’s Fort Minor Remix Aesop Rock/Homeboy Sandman Track


Should you be the adventurous type who dabbles into the world of underground hip hop, you may know that Aesop Rock & Homeboy Sandman sampled Linkin Park‘s “One Step Closer” on their track “Get A Dog” (hear it below.) Now Linkin Park frontman Mike Shinoda has taken the assist full circle, providing a remix of the track (also below) via his Fort Minor side project. Shinoda told of the origins of the remix:

“I don’t know how long I’ve been talking to Sandman. We had talked about doing something together at some point. It was just kind of casual, and then he sent me the “Get a Dog” original track. He emailed and said “Copyright infringement.” I thought it was hilarious. … I thought the beat was cool, but I also thought it’d be nice to have my touch on it … to actually remove the Linkin Park sample and do what I would have done today, you know? So yeah, I asked him for the acapella.”
