In late 2006, Clear Channel Music posted the entire The Rising Tied album complete with commentaries from Mike Shinoda before each song.[1] On "Right Now", he said, "This next song is called ‘Right Now’! It’s got Black Thought from the Roots, and Styles of Beyond is on this one as well. This song is basically inspired by a movie called ‘Short Cuts’. It’s a film by Robert Altman. Uhm, it’s actually one of my favorite movies. And I just love the way... in the movie, what they had is basically, you know, say about 20 different characters, who’s lives just basically interact with each other, but they don’t even know each other. And that’s kind of been… that was the theme for the song."

When questioned about his favorite experience while making the album, Mike said Black Thought came in, smoked weed for three or four hours, and did his verse in less than 30 minutes,[2] in only a couple of takes. He added, "No problem. I think it’s one of my favorite verses from him ever, and I’m really happy to have it on my record."[3]
