Mike Shinoda has a new opportunity for aspiring musicians.
On Tuesday (01/05), the Linkin Park founding member and Fort Minor frontman announced on his Instagram page that he wants to find a way to "give back to his amazing community online" by helping aspiring vocalists, rappers, and songwriters "get to the next level" through his channel on Twitch.

In the one minute video, he mentioned that his Twitch fans will act as his "A&Rmy" and help him find the right candidate via the hashtag #ShinodaProduceMe.
His only rules are:
- He will not sing on the track.
- The artist will only contribute their vocals and one instrument. "Nothing filled-out, just the song".
- He will produce the track on his own, and the track will only be released when he feels that he's done.
At the end of the video, he stated that this isn't a contest of any sort, but just an intention of helping musicians reach the next level. The winning entry will get their song produced by Mike live on his Twitch channel.
