Back in 2003, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda decided to venture into rap with a side project called Fort Minor. In 2005, Fort Minor’s debut album, The Rising Tied, was released – featuring collaborations with Styles Of Beyond, Common, Black Thought, Lupe Fiasco, John Legend, Holly Brook (Skylar Grey), and Celph Titled. Hell, JAY Z even served as executive producer and offered a few words before one of the project’s toughest tracks, “In Stereo,” kicked in. (We’re still waiting on that verse though.)
Now, a decade after the debut, it looks like Fort Minor is set for a comeback! The social media accounts have been created, Mike is currently teasing the return on Twitter, and – here’s the kicker – Fort Minor is scheduled to perform on Conan next week.
In case you missed out on the album before, you can stream it via Spotify below.
