Fort Minor

Fort Minor is a project of Japanese American rapper/producer Mike Shinoda, through which he collaborates with the rap group Styles of Beyond, of which his long time friend Takbir Bashir is a founding member.

The song "Kenji", released in their 2005 album "The Rising Tied", describes the experiences of Shinoda's family during the Japanese American internment of World War II.

Their hit single 'Where'd You Go?' won Ringtone of the Year at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards.
