After two installments on his Rap Phenomenon mixtape series, DJ Vlad teamed up with Roc Raida (X-Ecutioners) in an attempt to show people just how well rap and rock actually blend together. To further drive the point home, they chose Mike Shinoda to host the mixtape. DJ Vlad told "I did [Rock Phenomenon] for a couple of reasons. First, I wanted to come out with another official 'Phenomenon' mixtape, but I wanted to switch it up this time. I wanted to keep the same quality and work from the first couple of mixtapes, but totally change the genre of music. Actually, that's the main reason. Early hip-hop was very Rock influenced. Take a look at Rick Rubin. He produced all the early LL Cool J, Beastie Boys and some others like Run-DMC and it still works. All the Lil' Jon stuff, the M.O.P. stuff - all that really works with Rock. I heard Lil' Jon is actually working on a rock album with Rick Rubin right now. 2Pac Rap Phenomenon II is the biggest moving mixtape of all time, so there was a lot of pressure to live up to the 'Phenomenon' name. Every song on this mixtape is produced to death."[1]

The "Intro" track features an introduction by Mike Shinoda followed by various samples of songs heard throughout the mixtape.
