Background

Two clips of new music were posted by Mike Shinoda on Snapchat on May 26. The first clip was an instrumental while the second was a clip of him rapping over a sample of "Piece Of My Heart" by Big Brother And The Holding Company.[1]

On May 30, 2016 the Los Angeles artist Jensen Karp premiered a new Hot Karl (Jensen's rap name) song during his Get Up On This podcast. He said the song is called "Like Riding A Bike" and, besides laying a verse down, Mike Shinoda did the beat. The song also features verses by Jensen Karp's longtime friends Ali Abnormal and Intuition.[2]

"Like Riding A Bike" was officially released for free download on SoundCloud on June 7, coinciding with the release of Jensen's new memoir "Kanye West Owes Me $300: And Other True Stories from a White Rapper Who Almost Made It Big".[3]

A slightly different version of the song was released for free download on Jensen's SoundCloud account on June 6 (instead of the previously announced June 7 date). Mike's first line was changed to remove "Damn Daniel" as the first two words of the song.
