"Reckless" is the seventh track on Skam2?'s sophomore mixtape The SKRONIK: Flying Monkey Murder Cirkus. The song originally featured an introduction by Mike Shinoda but it was removed for the mixtape.

Background

Skam2? is a rapper and visual artist who created the cover of the mixtape Rock Phenomenon, which Mike Shinoda worked on in 2006. "Reckless" was recorded around the same time they worked on the mixtape.

The song was posted by Skam2?, under the alias Lt. Cornbread, on his MySpace page in April 2007. It was produced by K.L.R. T.R.X. and features an introduction by Shinoda.[1][2] Lt. Cornbread's MySpace page also featured some photos of him with Mike as well as other Fort Minor collaborators such as Holly Brook, Ryu and Tak.

The only other time Skam2? would be mentioned by Mike Shinoda was in 2011 when SKAM2?'s "To Be A Legend" won a contest which allowed the track to get airplay on the Linkin Park radio station at iHeartRadio.[3] Mike said, "If you’re going to mix rap and rock, you have to do something a little extra to catch my attention. This track by Omniscient & Skam2 has it."[4]

"Reckless" was completely reworked and shortened (with Mike Shinoda's speech also being removed) for Skam2?'s 2015 mixtape The Skronik: Flying Monkey Murder Cirkus[5] which featured tracks recorded over the course of nearly a decade.[6] The project, mixed by DJ Immortal, is the follow-up to 2012's Skronik: How To Boil Vomit and features production by Kevin Rudolf, SKAM2? himself and YMCMB producer Infamous.[7][8] The full mixtape was made available on Audiomack for free download[9] and spawned one single called "Definition".
