Other Notes:
- Mike and Rakaa from the Dilated Peoples went on The Wake Up Show to give interviews and rap. The DJ asked Mike to do a battle with Rakaa and Mike rapped verses 1 and 2 of 'Dedicated' and part of an unreleased song. On the Fort Minor forums in 2005, Mike said it was from a verse he had written "years ago", which might refer to even pre-Xero. He also posted the lyrics:
''Me and Rakka haven't begun to hit you yet
when i get you open / your insides will make you wet
you bet / hostile when i'm rapping to you
got you asking God how he let this happen to you
bringing on the fat lady / and the fat man too
and shoot em both out of a cannon over Kathmandu
if ya sleepin / i'm knocking out the sandman too
i'll beat the yellow out of you until you're black and blue
laugh at you / and any MC who wants to scuffle
turn a Challenger emcee into Challenger space shuttle
got Emcees so mixed-up, their bones are pulling muscles
And their bladders are leaking out and down their leg into a puddle
what's that / laying you flat survival tatic-ly
you wanna battle me you better start thinkin practicly
line after line casually rapping this rapidly
and ending this / you never get a chance to bust back at me''
