'''''The Rising Tied''''' is the debut, and so far, [[OneBookAuthor only]] album by Music/FortMinor, the [[SoloSideProject side project]] of Music/LinkinPark's Mike Shinoda. It was released on November 22, 2005. The album was produced by Shinoda, who played almost all the instruments on record, and with [[Music/JayZ Shawn Carter]] providing executive production. Many songs feature a guest appearance, with the bulk being his long-time friends Styles of Beyond. It was distributed by Linkin Park's Creator/WarnerBrothers label, as well as Shinoda's own independent Machine Shop.

The album, along with Fort Minor itself, came to life from Shinoda's interest in exploring his hip-hop roots in-between Linkin Park's hiatus. He described it as "not straight hip-hop, but not rock either". Lyrical themes vary from political elements to songs pertaining to the personal experiences of Shinoda. The album was critically acclaimed, and a moderate commercial success. It debuted at #51 on the Hot 100, and produced the #4 pop hit "Where'd You Go" and the sports anthem "Remember the Name".

As previously mentioned, this remains the sole album of Fort Minor. Largely this is due to Shinoda's commitments to Linkin Park. Though not the best-selling album, it remains a CultClassic, with sales of 400,000 worldwide.

!!Tropes
* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: "The Battle" is rapped entirely by Celph Titled, with Shinoda only doing the intro.
* {{Angst}}: Surprisingly little, when compared to what [[Music/LinkinPark his band]] is known for, but it pops up here and there. "Where'd You Go" would be the best example.
* BoastfulRap: Several songs, such as "Petrified", "Remember the Name", "In Stereo",
* TheCameo:
** Executive producer Music/JayZ says the opening line "that beat is hard" at the beginning of "In Stereo".
** Eric Bobo of Music/CypressHill provides latin percussion in "Believe Me".
** The turntable scratches in the final track "Slip Out the Back" were provided by none other than [[Music/LinkinPark Mr. Hahn]].
* ClusterFBomb: Shinoda swears all the time here. Compare that to the first two albums, where he didn't swear at all. Still, it's a HipHop album, so it's expected.
* ExecutiveMeddling: [[invoked]] Discussed in "Get Me Gone", where Warner Brothers spreaded rumors of them being a manufactured act comparable to the the boy bands at the time, which was ''not'' true.
* GenreShift: Compare this to Shinoda's NuMetal rapping in the first two Music/LinkinPark albums. They have little in common.
* MinisculeRocking: "Get Me Gone" isn't even two minutes long. "The Battle" is an even bigger (smaller?) example, at barely over thirty seconds.
* OutOfGenreExperience: Several songs, such as "Believe Me", "In Stereo", and "Red to Black" feature Shinoda singing for the first time.
* POWCamp: "Kenji" tells the story of his grandparents being forced into an interment camps during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII just for being Japanese.
* SmokingIsNotCool: "Cigarettes" compares the lies told in rap game to the lies tobacco companies tell to consumers.
* SpecialGuest: Most songs on the album feature a guest, with Styles of Beyond making up the bulk of them.
* SurprisinglyGentleSong: "Where'd You Go" is much softer than the rest of the album.
* TakeThatCritics: "High Road" is a TakeThat to the critics who lambasted Linkin Park, thinking they were a manufactured act.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: Quietly dropped the word "bitch" at the end of both of his verses in "High Road".
