Fugees Producer To Shop Memoir

john.jpgHip-hop artist and producer John Forte is working on a new book with agent Ed Victor.

The hip-hop producer worked with Fugees and released solo work, but was arrested on drug charges in 2000. Forte’s sentence was commuted by former President George W. Bush last fall.

Mediabistro.com’s Diane Clehane spotted his agent at lunch with Random House’s Julie Grau. Here’s more from Clehane’s lunch: “I asked Ed how things were going with the book from Fugee’s producer John Forte, who Ed lunched with a few Wednesdays ago. ‘He’s just sent me the outline,’ Ed told me. ‘He’s really a fascinating guy.’”
