Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda has a lot to say on "Post Traumatic."


Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda is no stranger to hip-hop, having previously released some music under the alias Fort Minor; his 2005 The Rising Tied album featured appearances from Black Thought, Common, Celph Titled & more. Unfortunately, last year proved difficult for Shinoda, after friend and band-mate Chester Bennington passed away. And while his musical future remained uncertain, Shinoda recently dropped off a brand new EP titled Post Traumatic, along with three brand new music videos.

The music is more melodic than Fort Minor's hip-hop roots, and it's clear that Shinoda is still grieving for Bennington. "Over Again" finds Mike reflecting on Chester's passing, lyrically recounting the difficulties of their first tribute show, and the way it all seemed to feel like a bad dream. It's some powerful stuff from Shinoda, especially if you've been invested in Linkin Park's music. Check out the Post Traumatic EP now, and stream the three videos below.
