    I really like this. It's not mind-blowing by any means but it's a solid first single.

    I'd be really disappointed if this is it. We all expected abother album but apparently there won't be one. When the website was working, there was new fort minor merchandise. I don't think he would do that and make a whole new website for one song. So who knows

    Fans of Fort Minor/Linkin Park will really like this song, fans of hip-hop not so much. It's very pop rap radio fodder. Not terrible though. The synth bridge is really nice.

    Do not post links to the song please. This was an early leak. Not meant to be out.

    Where'd You Go was the same thing, but not very indicative of how The Rising Tied sounded. Nothing to really worry about.

    It's awesome! I really hope we'll get a full album and not just one single.

    I'm surprised at the amount of people that think Mike is bringing back FM for one song.

    True. I was mostly referring to the song itself. I'm sure the album as a whole will be much more interesting. Lead singles always have to have the mass appeal.

    He did say that it he never meant to write a fort minor song. He just ended up writing it and he thought it something people needed to hear. So it's very possible there is no album.

    Should be pretty much right...
    Sounds quite Mac Miller

    [Verse 1]
    Yeah
    Welcome
    Yeah it's been a long minute
    Let me break it down now if ya'll still with it
    First time I did it
    Yeah i'll admit it
    I kinda hit it and quit it and left ya'll hanging
    Sang it, kinda off key with a passion
    Asking, can I give you back that action?
    Yeah i'm a blast in a hashtag fashion
    To spell it out for you like a masked closed caption
    Get a closed casket
    Fade to black
    This is my spot then i'll take it back
    Get at me punk I was made for that
    Ya'll don't really even know what you aiming at
    So far back what you waving at?
    Ya'll can't see the stage that i'm playing at
    Ya'll hating that
    But that's why I do it
    So tell me where the motherfucking haters at?
    Cause

    [Chorus]
    I don't need their blessing now
    I don't need their invitation
    Ain't no way to shut me down
    Or to take this path i've taken
    And maybe i've been left out
    Never let this be mistaken
    They can keep that blessing now
    Forget me now
    Cause I was never welcome

    [Verse 2]
    Yeah it's been a long road
    Never really know how it all unfold
    I'm just trying hard not to sell my soul
    When the rest want guns and a mouth full of gold
    I don't hate 'em
    I still love 'em
    That's not me
    I'm not judging
    Not be long
    Not a bum
    But disrespect me?
    Well them fuck 'em
    This a house i'm living in
    Ya'll just pass through visiting
    I draw these lines ya'll fill 'em in
    I'm a grown ass man
    Ya'll child-er-an
    No competition
    I'm killing them
    Talking 'bout a hitman
    Him and him
    Lets take it out for another spin again
    I don't give a fuck if I win again
    Cause

    [Chorus]

    The thing I found interesting is that this is kinda the first time he's rapped and sung a verse/chorus back to back. His singing style also feels different to how he sings with LP, it reminds me of the way a rapper sings, rather than his usual style which is more akin to how a rock singer sings, if that makes any sense. Maybe that's just what I'm hearing though. :lol:

    Eh not really feeling the song at all. Sounds like LIVING THINGS type production with subpar rapping on it. Hope this is just a throwaway track.

    How on earth does that sound anything like Living Things?

    I think it's great. IMO the old FM stuff has not aged well and any return needed to take a different angle. This is it and I like it.

    By the way, for anyone unsure if there is a new album coming out - The letter didn't rule it out. I think that's still up in the air, I think Mike's testing the waters and seeing how this will go down. So show some love.

    The overall poppy-ness and the production style.
