As one half of the critically acclaimed group Capone-N-Noreaga, Noreaga established himself as a true rap artist, lyrically talented and musically diverse. Within one year, he created a heavy demand for his vocal talents, which are incredibly distinct. His thuggish style brings a street flavor back to hip-hop, and with his solo debut N.O.R.E., Noreaga schools listeners on what rap music is meant to be.
The album N.O.R.E. is all about street credibility, lyrics that play with your head and beats that invoke serious head-nodding. "Banned From TV" is a posse cut that features only the hottest MCs, such as Cam'Ron, Big Punisher and The Lox. "I Love My Life" and "The Way We Live" show Noreaga's crossover potential, while production for tracks like "The Assignment" and "Superthug" make N.O.R.E. much more worthy of praise than the average debut.
