"Green Lantern Intro" is the first track on Fort Minor's We Major mixtape.


"Green Lantern Intro" serves as the introduction to Fort Minor's mixtape We Major, presented by DJ Green Lantern. The first thing heard on the track is a voicemail by Jay-Z talking to Mike, which ends with, "man, what else can I tell you people? let's do it."

An article published by MTV on October 24, 2005 reads, "The bond between Jay-Z and Linkin Park is not just a monetary alliance. They are real cool. So when the group's MC, Mike Shinoda, needed a drop from Young Hov for his mixtape, all he had to do was send a text message. "I hit him with a text, 'Man, can you give me something for the mixtape?' Next thing I know, I checked my phone [and Jay sent a drop].""

In the same article, Shinoda explained how he and Green Lantern started to work together on the mixtape: "I first met Green when we were out on tour, just hanging out; this was pre-Collision Course. He hit me with a couple of his Shady [Records] mixtapes and I was like, 'Thanks man, I got the first one and I've wanted to get these.' We swapped numbers and he was the first person I called. He did a real good job."

The rest of the track is composed of a bunch of samples over a simple beat. The track samples "Mic Check" by Juelz Santana, "Victory" by Puff Daddy, "Feel The Beat" by LL Cool J, "Crazy In Love (feat. Jay-Z)" by Beyoncé, "Put You On The Game" by The Game, "Knockout (Intro)" by Rahzel, "Real Hip Hop" by Das EFX, "Shook Ones (Part II)" by Mobb Deep, and Michael Buffer's catchphrase "let's get ready to rumble!".


Note: Only the date of the very first release of each version is listed.
