President Bush has granted pardons to 14 individuals and commuted the sentences of two, one of those two was John Forte. Remember John Forte? The dude who was on Wyclef’s joint “Staying Alive”, the man was brilliant he even wrote two joints on the Fugees classic album “The Score”. His solo album in 98 didn’t do so well but it did showcase a rising star to the world. In 2000 Forte fell upon bad luck when he got caught trying to peddle 1.4 mili in liquid crack (this dude is g, please praise this man, he more thug than 99% of these rap niggas out). Forte was sentenced to a 14 year minimum, but today all that has changed. The exact details are not fully released yet but we do now his sentence has been commuted, hopefully he will be released very soon.

I have a feeling this man has got a lot to say and I’m mos def gonna listen

Update: With the commutation, Forte will be released Dec. 22, after serving just over seven years. He still faces five years of supervised probation.

Fugees + Outsidaz = Cowboys

New JeruZ stand up!  I was surprised they had a video for this Fugees track off of their 5-Mic classic “The Score”  with Wyclef & Pacewon, Lauryn Hill & Rah Digga, Pras & Young Zee all splittin verses and then Jon Forte topping it off, “Cowboys” is a posse cut for the ages.
