Maybe they should go on epic rap battles of history as themselves!” On which, Mike Shinoda replied: “You mean imagine me like a toddler getting blown up by a nuclear weapon? Eminem is the greatest freestyle rapper, greatest battle rapper of all time. I don’t give a s–t what anybody says.

Someone asked: “If not a rap battle, please do a collab with Eminem, we all grew up listening to both Linkin Park and Eminem.” On that, Mike replied: “Am I gonna collab with Eminem? Probably not. I think Eminem is incredible but it’s not on to-do list.
