Capone N Noreaga
Where I'm from [South London in the 90s], Capone and Noreaga represent something so very serious. Half of us listened to Mobb Deep, CNN, Nas and Biggie, the other half listened to Master-P, Silkk The Shocker, Soulja Slim and the rest of those New Orleans guys. If, like me, you were a QB baby; CNN was about as good as it got. I'm always disappointed by Nas albums and as a group Mobb have failed to recapture what they had at their peak. Solo I don't think Prodigy's missed a beat, the same can't be said of Havoc but whatever. Nore became a different animal on his own. Generally I love solo Nore [no reggaeton...PIX!], but he hasn't been 'War Report' Nore since Capone went missing. I want this new CNN album to be good so bad now that they're back together and they're rapping well. I'm not the biggest 'Rotate' fan but I catch myself singing it every now and then [generally Ron Brownz can jump through a coffee table though right? Maybe he should make a song about how I told him to jump through a coffee table]. My faith is momentarily back in full effect though with the today's leak 'Grand Royal' produced by DJ Premier. I've listened to it about 10 times this afternoon. I am excited all over again.
