I just got news that President George W. Bush pardoned The Fugees' mc and producer John Forte.
John Forte's 14 year bid for accepting a briefcase with $1.4 million worth of cocaine has come to end with a stroke of still-President Bush's pen. Forte (official myspace ), a first time (and non-violent) offender, began his sentence in 2001. Should he not have been granted commuted sentence, he would remain behind bars for another 5-7 years (potential early release due to good behavior and such). We're glad to say that come December 22nd, the Jersey resident and Refugee camp MC/Producer will hopefully go back to slangin' "flow worlwide like a current" and not anything else. (via Okayplayer)
What are your thought on this pardon?
