It’s Februari 11th, today my other favorite rapper turned 36 years old. On second thought, calling Mike Shinoda just a rapper wouldn’t really be fair. That guy is something else, really. He’s a bit of everything; songwriter, producer, keyboardist, guitarist, painter, graphic designer… Gosh, the list of his talents is sooooo long, I’m sure I haven’t even named half of it all! Let’s just say he’s a real master mind 😛
And…; he’s sporting goatees like a pro XD *sigh* He’s so hot, XD Seriously, back in the day in my teenaged years; aside from Nick Carter helping many teenyboppers (including myself) through puberty *grins*, Mike Shinoda sure as hell helped a lot of girls (including myself) through puberty and even passed puberty as well 😛 *grins even more*
It’s not just his skills as a musician that should be mentioned. He and Linkin Park founded Music for Relief, to support disaster relief and reduce global warming. And quite recently Mike Shinoda revealed to be co-founder of Sustainable Recycling Solutions, which is the first Recycling Company in Haiti. They focus on building a lasting industry, creating new jobs, cleaning up the streets, and contributing to healthier communities. You can read all about it and more in his own blog really; at mikeshinoda.com. Very inspirational.
Mucho kudos to Mike Shinoda and happy birthday 🙂
Well then… All there’s left for me to do now, is to end this blog entry with a few of my favorite Linkin Park/ Fort Minor/ Mike Shinoda tracks:
