Background

The remix was created by AmpLive and Mike Shinoda and features guest vocals by Baba Zumbi (credited as Zion). Both AmpLive and Baba Zumbi are from the hip hop duo Zion I. According to Mike, AmpLive did the beat and they all worked on the music together. The vocals were recorded at Mike's studio at his house: "yeah, when we got to Mike's house and had 8 bars to rhyme and he made me do it over like 30 times! usually something that short would take 5 or 10 minutes to do but it took 40 minutes and it showed his level of perfection and made look at my own art with a little more critical eye yeah sometimes as an artist you are trying to catch the feeling, so for me at least i am not as focused on articulation, but in that instance but now i see in the finished project i see what a difference that made"

The original remix created by AmpLive was rejected by the band because they wanted something darker. During a linkinpark.com chat, Zion said: "When LP said they wanted something darker, it was cool because we used Amp's creativity in a different way"

About the new remix, which ended up on the album, Mike Shinoda said: "zion i, like most of the artists on the cd, have a very different style than our band. so the challenge was coming together in a way that represented both things and didn't compromise either we did the whole song without guitars. it was a real challenge but it still sounds really heavy"

Zion added: "ya that's real true I think the connection between the two is we both dibble and dabble with elecrtic sounds a lot we could mix the guitar and the rhymes and that electronic sound was the bridge amp took the keyboard samplers and tweaked them and sampled them so it kinda sounded like guitars it was phat"[1]

The original remix was eventually released under the name "Place 4 My Head" in 2006 on AmpLive's compilation Beats Remixes & A Side Of Mashups.
