N.O.R.E., P.A.P.I., or whatever you’d like to call him just released his latest album Student of the Game, which is getting a lot of praise by the Internets. He caught up with The Breakfast Club this morning to discuss an array of topics, the likelihood of another C-N-N LP, including the new generation, business ventures, Rick Ross’ controversial lyrics on “U.O.E.N.O.” and more.
“I feel as young as Chief Keef, but the reality is that I am a grown man that’s been in this game since 17-years-old,” said N.O.R.E.
That ideology guided the Queens native’s creative process on Student of the Game, which is the project can house polar opposite tracks like “Tadow” and the Large Professor-produced “Built Pyramids.”
“The album is called Student of the Game, and what I really wanted to do was show people that this new school music isn’t bad,” explained the “Superthug” MC. “I can do some of that, but I can also show you the roots of what I come from.”
