    This is Mike's Blog Post - http://mikeshinoda.com/2012/09/27/fort-minor-fans-the-album-you-thought-youd-never-hear/


    I first met STYLES OF BEYOND (S.O.B.) in the late ’90s, rapping at parties and with friends in the San Fernando Valley, north of L.A. Years later, I featured them on my Fort Minor album, on songs like Remember The Name and Believe Me.

    After we wrapped up the touring for FM, the guys were signed to Linkin Park’s imprint Machine Shop Records. Above all, I believed in these guys, and I loved the music they made. Shortly thereafter, we began putting the finishing touches on an amazing album, Reseda Beach. Aside from the music they self-produced, we had tracks from J. Dilla and Scoop Deville, and even a super random cameo appearance by Michael Buble (which didn’t make album, but was an amazing experiment).

    It was a very exciting time–I always felt like the album they put together showcased exactly what set this group apart from other rap collectives: their knack for setting a tone and vibe, their unique sense of humor, and their classic-sounding style.



    As I mentioned HERE a while back, we had every intention of releasing the S.O.B. album on our imprint label, but we ran into roadblocks. When things got impossible, Styles Of Beyond split up, and decided to pursue separate interests. It was a terrible time, especially for them, but also for me–we had all put so much work and hope into this project, and it seemed that it might all go straight down the toilet.

    But recently, thanks to persistent interest from fans, Ryu, Tak, Cheapshot, Skully, and some mutual friends decided to put out the album that we all put so much work into.

    I’ve always been a big fan of this album, and I’m glad you’re all going to be able to hear it. Here’s one of my favorite tracks off the record, The Pirate Song:


    So please support the guys, check this out, and spread the word. They’ve got a bundle that comes with a t-shirt, and another bundle that comes with a second CD (including many of the other tracks we recorded while making the album, featuring Bishop Lamont, Scoop Deville, Apathy, Celph Titled, and some guy named Mike Shinoda).

    Get the album HERE

    I didn't know that. But if I am honest, Pirate Song is not really good. Well, I don't like it.

    I think this post should be moved to "Other Music." I'm kind of leery about this album... I'm not sure if it's for me.

    Yeah, I liked their work with Fort Minor, but "Pirate Song" really isn't doing much for me. It depends how the other tracks are, but I'll take a listen.

    I liked their 2 first records a lot, and seeing how Mike is excited about this one, I'm almost sure it will also sounds good.

    I'm interested :)

    Moved it to "Side Projects" instead as it features Mike and is related to Mike/Fort Minor. :)

    Good call! I just felt that it was out of place in Linkin Park Chat. ;)

    I own all of SOB's albums and I pre-ordered this one as well. Been waiting for like 6 years for it! I love The Pirate Song, and I think the album is going to be a hip-hop classic, also cool that we are getting the Razor Tag original songs and a few bonus songs.

    I'm excited to have a non-remix version of ''Hey You''. That'll be cool.

    I think I'll like it

    I have heard "Damn" and "The Pirate Song" and I like them all, especially "Damn" track. I like their style. I am waiting for the release day of their album. It can be great. Thanks for the information.
