Fort Minor

You've no doubt heard "Remember The Name", the go-to song for any trailer with a struggling athlete on the come-up, but Fort Minor is more than just a one hit wonder. Fort Minor were definitely the first rap I listened to, apart from a few Eminem songs. The reason for the transition from Rock to Rap was due to the fact that the lead of Fort Minor was Mike Shinoda, one of the vocalists for Linkin Park, my favorite band at the time. The group only released one album, The Rising Tied before Mike Shinoda returned to Linkin Park and Ryu and Tak brought Styles of Beyond back from their hiatus. The best part of the album is the lyricism and the messages that Shinoda writes about, like the internment camps in America.
