In an interesting turn, the dynamic folks at The Combat Jack Show return with one of their most entertaining guests to date: John Forté. A truly enigmatic figure and an affiliate of The Fugees, Talib Kweli (his college roommate), and a list of others, the Brooklyn native speaks very candidly about his successes, shortcomings, and everything in between.

Combat Jack Says:

How does one go from Brownsville, Phillips Exeter Academy, NYU, Lauryn, Wyclef, ‘The Score’, ‘The Carnival’ to prison? How does one get pardoned by George Bush? And how does one find redemption and true freedom afterwards? John Forte tells us his entire journey and where he is now.

Lend an ear to Forté’s story below. Leave your thoughts in the comments.
