8944John Forte is home! After serving half of his 14-yr sentence for possession with intent and conspiracy to distribute cocaine, he was granted an official Presidential pardon and returned home on December 22, 2008.  After 7 long years away from his family, friends and the rest of the world, John was eager to start embracing life again – on his first night home from prison, he was already back in the studio recording. Talib Kweli joined him by contributing to a reworked Kanye beat, “Homecoming”.

The song “Homecoming” and the videos are just the beginning for John, who has solidified a bi-weekly column in The Daily Beast. Of course he has an album in the works, but besides the writing and the music, he’s also working with at-risk youth organizations such as “In Arms’ Reach,” a community-based arts, counseling and mentoring program for the children of incarcerated parents.

In anticipation of the January 27 release of Johnny Cash Remixed, Compadre Records/Music World Music has created a podcast featuring interviews with Snoop Dogg and John Carter Cash, son of Johnny and June Carter Cash.

Johnny Cash is an icon of American music whose work has touched every contemporary genre, from Rock to Pop, from Emo to Hip Hop. Twenty Johnny Cash classics (including “I Walk The Line”, “Folsom Prison Blues” and ‘Wide Open Road”) were licensed from legendary Sun Records, first record label home of Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Roy Orbison, among others.

Top remixers and producers were recruited to bring the sensibility and technology of 2008 to recordings universally accepted as timeless, with the blessing and support of the custodians of Johnny Cash’s legacy.
