The Mighty Bestruck aka Brian Forte at 6'4 and over 300 pounds, he's heavy in more ways than one. And similar to other massive MCs like the Notorious B.I.G., Bone Crusher, and Big Pun, his stature affects much of his life, his outlook, and his music. 'Being my size has it's advantages', he says. 'People don't want to f*** with you, and as an MC that's cool. But it also has it's drawbacks, like buying two seats on planes, finding fly clothes that fit, and trying to get healthy and stay alive. That's all part of my personal struggle so it's naturally a part of my music.' Born and bred in the small bare-knuckle town of Mt. Holly, NJ, just outside of Philadelphia, his messages are subtle but no less profound. In his hilariously lascivious video 'Disgusting'; one of the most popular videos in BET's Uncut history, he plays the role of a sexual deviant on the prowl. And while the girls in the video proclaim his antics 'disgusting'; he continues on his journey seemingly unfazed by their taunts. But there's a deeper context to the raunchy escapades. 'It's a funny, yet a sad song to me', he says. 'We can't all be the guy who always gets the girl because it's not like that in real life. Some guys have to buy the girl; hit strip clubs; get their porn collection tight. So I use humor in here to cope with what society says is wrong 'cause like a lot of people out there, I'm not so sure it's really all that disgusting. [laugh]' 'I've done things that were considered illegal, but I don't know if I truly consider it wrong', he says. 'But there are things that are legal that I do consider wrong. I want people to think about those things and question them.' Other Notable Releases Include: 'Get Little' featuring Nas's former protoge Nature and 4-Ize, who is known for his word-bending verse on Ludacris's 'Mouthing Off'; from Back for the First Time. His Simon and Garfunkel nod, 'Hello Darkness'where he unveils his innermost thoughts. Bestruck matches Norwegian rap legend Tommy Tee's mesmerizing track with captivating snapshots of his life story. The cold look into the darkness of one man's thorny past and unsettling present is in the vein of Eminem's classic 'Stan' with it's thoughtful songwriting and riveting message. In June 2004, The Mighty Bestruck has released his enhanced maxi-single 'STOMP' produced by up an coming phenom 'Quang Ly'. Track two is 'YOU' featuring 'Michael Braxton', the next singing sensation to be revealed by the famed 'Braxtons' and 'Toni Braxton'. And for those who could not stay up late enough to witness the witty BET Uncut Classic Video 'Disgusting', this has been added to the enhanced portion of the CD.
