|Song by Mike Shinoda from the album MTV VMA 2005 Score|
"Hype" is a song released by Mike Shinoda from his MTV VMA 2005 Score.
In 2005, Mike Shinoda and Lil Jon were asked to score that year's MTV Video Music Awards. Mike commented, "The challenge was that they needed variety. I did 10 tracks, a couple of them a lot of Linkin Park fans will recognise the sound, while others are different, all the way down to some really stripped-down hip-hop sounds. And within each piece, there are different parts." They did not collaborate on any track.
Short ringtones of five of Mike's songs were posted on MTV.com's "The Leak" for fans to download, and "Hype" was one of them.
In response to fans who started asking for the full score in early 2010, the tracks were uploaded to Mike Shinoda's SoundCloud page and made available for free download.
Note: Only the date of the very first release of each version is listed.
