John Forte

John forte will be in Baltimore at Club Reality tonight you should come out 2625 Washington Blvd, Baltimore MD 21230
I actually had the chance to interview him today. Here is some back ground info him. John Forté is a Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and producer from Brooklyn, New York, best known for his work with the multi-platinum group “The Fugees.” On November 24, 2008, Forté was granted a commutation by President George W. Bush after having served more than seven years of a fourteen-year federal prison sentence for a first-time non-violent drug offense. I think the interview was a major fail. I felt like my co-host came off harsh towards John and did not respect his redemption. However I did manage to find out some good info for one he does not curse, or use misogynist lyrics anymore. He is a teacher at the City College of New York where he teaches a twelve-week course geared towards students aged 12-15. He uses his music as a therapeutic means to address stress, anger and pain
