Capone-N-Noreaga generated a strong buzz within hip-hop's underground circuit with their first album THE WAR REPORT, until, with an inevitability that seems to accompany the genre, Capone was incarcerated and promotion of the album ceased. However, Noreaga continued with his career, and had sizeable hits with his next two solo albums.
Now, with Capone out of jail, and Noreaga ready to pick up where the two left off, their second album THE REUNION further establishes them as one of hip-hop's most street credible duos. Songs such as the roughneck anthem "Bang Bang" and the Nas-accompanied "Be EZ" best illustrate CNN's trademark style, while on "Phone Time," Capone and Noreaga creatively portray one of their jail phone conversations. Produced by DJ Premier, Alchemist, EZ Elpee, L.E.S., and Havoc among others, this album represents hip-hop at its most exceptional.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (12/7/00, pp.116-7) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...[Their] greatest gift may be the ability to bring star perfromances out of their collaborators....what they lack in structure and rhyme they make up for in flow and insight, there is veracity and verve..."
Vibe (10/00, p.167) - 3 records of 5 - "...Rekindles the magic that first made people love them....[They] are more polished but no less thugged out....the duo give us the volatility we all expect."
