"Cover And Duck" is the sixteenth track on Fort Minor's We Major mixtape.


"Cover And Duck" features Mike Shinoda, Styles of Beyond, and Celph Titled.

While working on The Rising Tied, Mike Shinoda wrote over 50 tracks in order to come up with the 14 songs that composed the album.[1] "Cover And Duck" was one of the songs considered for the final tracklist of the album, as seen on The Making Of The Rising Tied documentary, but didn't make it, being released on the We Major mixtape instead. At 4:34, the track is longer than anything found on The Rising Tied due to it having full verses by Tak, Ryu, Mike, and Celph Titled. Celph Titled was not credited on the song on We Major for an unknown reason.

Unlike almost every other song on We Major, "Cover And Duck" samples no other music, is not a remix, and is not a song by another artist.

The version of the song on We Major features a rewind edit of the first verse by DJ Green Lantern, who hosted the mixtape.

An alternate version of the song was released on Celph Titled's four disc compilation The Gatalog: A Collection Of Chaos in 2006. The intro of the song where Mike says "gentlemen and ladies, please put down your expensive champagne" on the We Major version is actually a different take on the version found on The Gatalog. This version also features different guitar.


Note: Only the date of the very first release of each version is listed.
