This past Valentine's Day, singer, songwriter, rapper and producer John Forte performed at Shank Hall. John Forte was member of the legendary Fugees, and is a Grammy award winner.  I got to chance to sit down with Forte a before his show. We talked about many things including his reaction to George W. Bush's pardon over a year ago to his forthcoming album, "Water, Light, Sound", which was inspired by Bon Iver.  We also talked about his cover of Kate Bush's "Running Up The Hill".  Listen to the whole interview uncut and un-edited.  John Forte will be on tour with Wale,  and K'Naan.
