"Y'all Don't Really Know What You're Aimin' At"

It simply does not get any better than this when it comes to new music on a Monday. It has been an entire decade since Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda (aka Fort Minor) came through with one of my favorite all time albums in The Rising Tied. If you're wondering whether he's lost a step as a solo artist, fear not, just press play below and give a listen to Welcome...

The good news is you can go grab Welcome for free via Fort Minor's newly revamped website. If you're like me, you're wishing with all the good karma you have in your being that Welcome is the gateway to a new full-length album. Unfortunately, it sounds like this beautiful new track that focuses on Hip Hop's lack of love for him as a solo artist is more of a stand-alone single than a lead single. The sound of the track is clearly driven by years worth of emotion and it comes across through a mix of lyrical ferocity and jubilant synths that quietly ride out the track in a surprisingly powerful way. As I'm writing this, I'm watching Mike's live stream via Periscope and despite the fact that his new track may not fit in on Hip Hop or Rock stations, it will definitely have a place on every mix I burn in the next month. For the love of all that is holy, keep the new music coming!!...#Welcome
