Though the P.A.P.I. name change is still a bit questionable, N.O.R.E. freestyled over Scarface’s classic “Guess Who’s Back” during a recent trip to Hot 97. Funk Flex revved the engine, and the Queens rapper took us back to his days as Melvin Flynt – Da Hustla with a story detailing how rap took him from dealing with his Spanish connect in east NYC to living in the lap of luxury.
The only bump in the road comes when self-proclaimed Queens legends says that he’s only second in the borough to Nasir Jones. Can’t say that we agree bro, but we applaud his confidence and the dosage of old school New York City rap. Listen to and watch the freestyle in the video below.
