The Rising Tied Fort Minor Download

Mike's Note: this song is a fort minor militia preview. it will be available on later, but you're hearing it here first. this version of the song contains interview clips only...all the things that were in the interviews that i couldn't fit into the song, but i thought i should put this out there for you to hear. i think this version really tells the intimate side of my family's internment camp story well. also, don't miss this part of the story: my dad's family was pretty successful before they were forced into the camp; when they got out, they had newspaper for wallpaper and were picking grapes as day-laborers. the internment had hit them pretty hard.

Mike's Note: a lot of people keep asking me about this song. here is the story: celph titled came to LA for his first time, to visit and do some vocals. on his last day, he came to the studio a little buzzed, drinking cisco. then ryu and tak proceeded to peer-pressure him into drinking WAY too much, and by the end of the day, he was vomiting and passing out in the studio bathroom. we were all drinking, and you can tell, based on how ridiculous the verses are. celph had written some verses, but didn't finish recording because he was too wasted-- so we had cheapshot try to read his lyrics. this was supposed to be an interlude on "the rising tied," but it turned out way too silly.

Mike's Note: this was the first fort minor song. i did it just for fun, screwing around in the bus. i like the beat, but i don't like the lyrics. all the stories in the song are true, by the way. this song basically got scrapped as i started making other things that i liked better, but listening to it now, there's a cool kind of nostalgia about it.

Mike's Note: this was the second fort minor song ever. it sounds a little like something out of the late-80's or early 90's...i like the beat. the lyrics are actually from a linkin park song that never went anywhere. i working on the beat, and they just popped in my head, so i put them over this beat. i did the scratching in the bridge as a filler, and had planned to have someone else come in and scratch it if i ever finished the song...but i ended up deciding that this song wouldn't make the album, so i stopped working on it.

Mike's Note: i thought it would be a cool idea to do a song about sitting in at my own funeral. also appropriate, because doing the fort minor album was like leaving one life and moving on to something else...i thought it was a cool metaphor. as far as the instrumentation goes, i don't play koto, so i used a variety of keyboard sounds to make the "sample." i cut it up and put record crackles on it to make it sound dirtier. mr. hahn blessed me with some scratches. and yes, that weird sound on the end is supposed to be there, your computer's not screwed general, i think the song sounds unfinished, but i didn't know what else to do with it. 350c69d7ab
