John Forte celebrates the 6th anniversary of his release from prison today with the new song “Life’s About The Low” featuring KYO. Revisiting the pain of incarceration and the discipline it takes to survive lockdown, he deploys a gritty, rough-hewn vocal to deliver a haunting narrative that carries the weight of his experience and plays like a kite to every man still doing time. The haunting hook and brooding production belie the hope packed between the words. If you miss it the first time, run this joint back. It is well worth it. Check the track below to listen to “Life’s About The Low.” Stay tuned for more from John Forte.
