NORE: Biography and music career

Published At: 15 April 2020 , 08:43 AM


NORE, also known as Noreaga, is a rapper from Queens, a member of the duo Capone-N-Noreaga.

Together with Capone, he began to rap in 1995, and with the support of rapper Tragedy Khadafi, they released the album "The War Report" in 1997, which is equated by some critics as a classic. The release became one of the most notable hardcore albums of the late nineties, and its success allowed to unleash the solo careers of both participants.

In 1998, Noreaga released his first solo album, "NORE," which went platinum with the tracks "NORE" and "Superthug". The subsequent solo albums of 1999 and 2002, even taking into account Def Jam label support, were not much more successful, as was the second Capone-N-Noreaga album, "Reunion", released in 2000. In 2006, NORE moved away from the usual sound and began experimenting with the reggae tone, releasing the release of "NORE y la Familia ... You TĂș Sabe". However, already in 2007, he returned to his previous style with the album "Noreality".

After that, in 2009 and 2010, he participated in recording the albums "Channel 10" and "War Report 2" with Capone. These releases have helped participants cement a precarious position in the industry. In 2013, Noriega released his so far latest album, "Student of the Game", which turned out to be not very successful both in terms of sales and in terms of criticism. In 2015, Capone-N-Noreaga released their fifth joint album, "Lessons".
