John Forte’s ”Homecoming” ft Talib Kweli & Kanye West: Free MP3 Download

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”.

Download the MP3 Here.

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.
