I was reintroduced to the singer/rapper/producer John Forte the other day while watching episode 5 of season 2 of NY Ink, a reality television show about a tattoo shop in New York. Forte was one of the clients on this episode. While being tattooed (a portrait of his mother) he told the story of how ten years ago he was sent to prison for 14 years for drug possession (he was released after 7; pardoned by George W. Bush). Since being released Forte has been busy; and to say he is reformed is an understatement. He is spreading positivity and INSPIRATION in his music. Second chances do exist-Be Inspired!
