A band called "The Girl Scouts" was initially announced to remix a track on Reanimation.[1] The name comes from the side project of Cheapshot and Vin Skully (credited as Jubacca) of Styles Of Beyond, who were eventually credited for the remix of "Papercut". In reality, each of them did their own remix of the song and Vin Skully's was picked for the album as explained by Cheapshot:

"Mike & The LP gang were gracious enough to ask if Vin Skully and I wanted to do a remix for Reanimation. Skully submitted a demo (dope) and I submitted a demo (sucked). They chose Vin Skully's and while he spent hundreds of hours working on it, I was playing Tony Hawk 3 in the background mastering my manuals while silently resenting him for being better than me at producing. But since we are production partners I took half of the credit and accepted my platinum plaque as if I were Diddy. End of story."[2]

Rasco and Planet Asia, both from the rap duo Cali Agents, guests with rap verses on the track. According to Rasco, Mike had approached he and Planet Asia at a show they did in Portland asking if they'd "be down to get in on the project" and they both said it was "something we'd like to do so we came into the project together". Their verses were recorded at Mike's house. It took about an hour to come up with the verse, and about another hour to record it.

Speaking to Linkin Park fans, Rasco said: "I think maybe they were looking for maybe a more straight forward approach to the song, so I think that's why they got me and Asia on that track We tried to be ourselves and bring that element Bring new ingredients to that song to make it different the combination of the 3 of us"[3]

The music video for "Ppr:kut" was directed by Mike Piscatelli[4] for MTV2's "MTV:Playback".
