For those of you that are huge fans of Linkin Park should get excited over this especially if you are a fan of Mike Shinoda, who is the rapper in the band. In 2005, Mike made an album with a group he called Fort Minor and they released the album The Rising Tide and the album was amazing. I couldn’t get enough of the record and it explored a side of Mike Shinoda we already knew that he had just from his time in Linkin Park. The other day, I was talking to someone who was playing Fort Minor and I told them that it was too bad that Shinoda didn’t release another album with them. Well, know my question has been answered as Mike just unveiled a new Fort Minor tune for all of us to hear called Welcome. Shinoda says, “Fort Minor is a solo project. It was born out of my earliest experience as a music and visual art fan. My influences were always outsider influences, songs sung by underdogs. I related to them because they were like me.” The song is a proverbial F you to the hip hop community who I believe never really accepted the group, but only after Where’d You Go became a smash hit. The song is absolutely amazing and it’s also being offered as a free download which you can get here. Otherwise check it out below and stay tuned for more info on a new album as it becomes available.
