Fort Minor: "Jay-Z Was A Huge Help"
Fort Minor are thankful to Jay-Z for his help on their album.
Speaking as guests on today's TRL, Fort Minor " fronted by Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park - bigged-up the rap legend, who was the executive producer of their album. "People ask me if Jay wrote anything on the album," Mike told TRL's Dave Berry - also a rap legend in many people's eyes. "He didn't write any lyrics, he didn't write any of the music.
"So it's like, 'what did he do?' Well I'm a pretty versatile writer, I write pop songs, punk songs, rock songs, hip-hop songs, whatever.
"And what Jay would do as executive producer is help me go through all these types of songs that I was thinking of doing and decide what to use. These were all hip-hop songs and Jay helped me pick the right ones."
Fort Minor's debut single 'Believe Me' hit the shops today.
Tune-in to TRL every weekday at 6pm on MTV.
