This is crazy because I was just in the car this past weekend on the way to the club bumping a Fugees record, and one my homies was like “Yo...it’s a been minute since I’ve heard some John Forte” We then went on to talk about the $1.14 million dollars worth of liquid cocaine he was caught carrying.
But nonetheless this is excellent news! Especially for http://freejohnforte.com/

WASHINGTON — President Bush granted 14 pardons and commuted two prison sentences on Monday, but the benefactors included none of the big names who had become the topic of speculation as Mr. Bush leaves office.
Mr. Bush has been relatively sparing in his use of pardons compared with past presidents, and the latest round of actions continued that pattern.
The closest any of the defendants came to celebrity was John E. Forté, a hip-hop artist and backup singer to Carly Simon who was convicted of aiding and abetting in the distribution of cocaine. (Ms. Simon put up the bail of $250,000 for Mr. Forté when he was arrested in 2001 at Newark International Airport.) Mr. Forté was sentenced to 14 years in prison, but Mr. Bush commuted the remainder of his sentence.
