I’ll let Shamz give you the run down of this (2)dope jawn…

John Forte continues to be active and productive since his release from prison this past December. Taking full advantage of his freedom, Forte has been teacing at the City College of New York, recording with Talib Kweli, working on his memoirs, as well as working with Harlem-based initiative “In Arms Reach,” which works with at-risk youth who have incarcerated parents. Next Tuesday, John will be releasing an EP entitled, StyleFREE. The seven songs on the EP were written during the seven and a half years he was incarcerated. Here is one song off of the project, Play My Cards For Me. Of the song, John says: “[‘Play My Cards For Me’] is about the journey of a man (in this case me), and the willingness to relinquish control to his (my) loved one in the event of his (my) demise.” Look for a full length album, Water, Light, Sound, to drop in 2010. StyleFREE will be available for purchase next Tuesday from John’s site.
