Mike recently stopped by the Fort Minor forums to answer a question on whether the new album will be censored, to which he replied; ""the rising tied" has cursing on it, BUT i know we have a lot of fans who actually like clean records, so i'm putting out a clean version. you know the drill: if you can take the cursing, pick up the regular version; if not, look for the clean one." In addition, Mike cleared up some confusion over some lyrics that were reported on by some music sites. "everybody is giving him guest spots / his stock's through the roof / i heard he's f**king with s-dot" ...and that's ryu's [Styles of Beyond] line, not mine. people have been getting us confused for some reason." For those of you wondering what the second coded news post on FortMinor.com means, it reads "The debut Fort Minor album is entitled The Rising Tied. In an effort to get back to his hip hop roots, Mike wrote and played virtually every note on the album. The album features a group of his friends in the hip hop community." Thanks in part to eXess7.
