The 50 Best Guest Verses of All Time

45. John Forte on The Fugees' "Cowboys" (1996)

Album: The Score
Producer: Fugees, John Forte, Jerry Duplessis
Label: Ruffhouse, Columbia

Before he was arrested with $1.4 million worth of liquid cocaine at the airport in 2000 (and released in 2008 courtesy of a pardon from George W. Bush), John Forte was serving heat with the Refugee Camp and working at Rawkus Records. His contributions to "Cowboys" from The Score was an impassioned street narrative that began: "When pandemonium strikes, and midnight hits/Full moon splits soft nigga's into lunatics on some absurd shit."

Forte plays the finisher to the innings, granted the longest verse of the track and spitting with focus and intensity as he reps BK to the fullest.
