I don't know if there are any similar threads, but here goes. Before Fort Minor, I was the kind of person who wouldn't really listen to rap at all, besides Mike's raps in Linkin Park. I couldn't tolerate, and I could barely tolerate Collision Course. But after Fort Minor, I've begun to tolerate any rap now. Mainstream isn't a nuisance to me anymore, it's just more interesting. I don't know if it's been the same for any of you, but Fort Minor basically widened my variety of music.
