an awesome hip-hop album by Fort Minor
, the moniker of Mike Shinoda
. instead of rapping about cash, hoes and getting crunk, he raps about decent topics and has very well written lyrics. the definition of the album title, "the rising tied" is that they are a rising group of tied people. the album features collaborations with underground rap group, Styles Of Beyond

and Holly Brook.
mike shinoda wrote every song, played every instrument (except the violins, cellos and turntable scratching), and produced and mixed the rising tied.
