Fort Minor Quotes:
I was a producer and rapper before Linkin Park. Once the band took off, it was the center of my focus. A couple of years ago, I started missing doing straight-up hip hop, and that's when Fort Minor began.
-Mike Shinoda

I wouldn't have let Jay be executive producer unless he got some real input on the record! I mean, him vouching for it is worth something, but what I really wanted was for him to give me advice on the music. I'm pretty versatile when I make music, I can make a lot of different types of stuff, any genre.
-Mike Shinoda

If I weren't making music, I'd be the kid who writes into the magazines and says, "why don't you guys ever cover anything that's different? Hip hop is so much of the same thing over and over again." I love hip hop, so I wanted to make an album from that standpoint, 'cause that's who I am.
-Mike Shinoda
