It’s a hour and a half before Easter, but because N.O. couldn’t wait to give up the goods, 57th Ave drops off his 10-track EP in our Easter basket earlier than expected. Tracklist and download link below.
Norega’s Nore’aster mixtape will make landfall this Sunday. But for the next 48, rock out to this banger whipped up by Scram Jones. Other producers featured on the project include The Neptunes and Cool & Dre.
Prodigy appeared on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club morning show today to promote his book, My Infamous Life. He spoke on an excerpt in which Capone of C-N-N was accused of snitching. Moments later, N.O.R.E. called in to defend his partner in rhyme.

With today marking the 11th anniversary of Big Pun’s death, Angie Mar dug in her archives and found an old interview with Big Pun and N.O.R.E. on Hot 97. Pun talks about being nominated for a Grammy and wanting to be the first rapper to release a quadruple album. Ha! Rest In Peace, Punisher.
Truthfully, Ice Cube was supposed to kick this column off. He told me his song “Supreme Hustle” off War & Peace Vol. 2 (The Peace Disc) was criminally slept on. Unfortunately, his explanation was deleted on my recorder. Damn. But the show must go on and to usher things in the right way is Noreaga. N.O. reasons that “Grimey” off God’s Favorite should’ve been bigger and thinks “Bang Bang” was marred by the shooting outside Hot 97. Sidebar: On The […]
