Haven’t heard much from N.O.R.E. in the past few years but he’s back. He has movie “Super Thug” that will be coming out next year sometime and he has an album that was called S.U.P.E.R.T.H.U.G. that will be dropping around September or October of this year. Now why I said WAS CALLED is because N.O.R.E. changed the album title. The distributors of the album felt like if the album wasn’t going to contain music from the movie, then they didn’t need to have the same names.
“I kinda agreed with them. I felt I should hold it together but make it two separate entities. I said I’ll leave the movie ‘Super Thug.’”
Now N.O.R.E.’s album is going to be called Student of the Game.
“I thought long and hard, said I want to incorporate the new music and incorporate what I love from my era. You might hear a Jahlil Beats and the next beat is Pete Rock. You might hear a Dreddy beat and the next joint is produced by Primo [DJ Premier]. I’m not opposed to what’s going on right now. I love what’s going on right now. You might hear me with a Titty 2 Chainz on one record, then I might reach out to Large Professor. I was just thinking how do you enjoy the hip-hop you came from and say then say, ‘Look muthafucka, I know what’s going on’?”
“More than even being Nore the artist, I’m a fan of the game,” he added. “I was still excited downloading Self Made 2. Besides Ross, Wale and Meek being my homies and Spiff [TV] damn near like my cousin. As a fan, I was still excited to wait to Tuesday morning and spend my money on iTunes for the Self Made album. I was excited to buy that Waka Flocka Triple F Life. I’m still a fan.”
Even though N.O.R.E. is excited about his favorite artist, his own fans will be excited to hear he has a single dropping soon himself. The name of the track is entitled “Want More”.
“It’s a statement record. I want people to know I enjoy my job. I really love my job. My feet don’t hurt, I don’t have bad knees. my weight is coming together. I want people to know they gonna hear me for a while. I’m not going anywhere.”
Well that’s a promise that I hope will be kept. This new album of his, I feel will make or break his fan base because since it has been so long since he’s dropped an album, he has to be able to withstand his competition. From what he says, N.O.R.E. knows what he is up against and plans to deliver some FIRE!
