Capone-N-Noreaga, also know as CNN, ya that’s right I am bringing you another hip-hop duo, classic joint that made heads turn. Capone and Noreaga both from Queens, NY. spent their time in and out of jail striving to make their mark while developing their debut album The War Report. Anyone who knows good hip-hop knows about these cats, but they definitely have gone through Hell and back. Both being tossed from different labels, like Penalty, Def Jam and Tommy Boy and eventually being split apart by Def Jam this is a real musical struggle with some damn good talent that we need to relive and appreciate.
Alright now Marley Marl has also been through his share of beef, for those of you who don’t know he is one of the most influential producers in the history of hip-hop..Ya that’s right! A producer for the Juice Crew, which for those who are knower’s included Big Daddy Kane, Bix Markie, Roxanne Shante, seriously the list goes on, is the S*&t. Having three artists that helped to shape the world of hip-hop is incredibly boss!
L.A. l.A. big city of dreams But everything in l.a. aint always what it seems You might get fooled if you come from outta town Cuz we comin from queens and gets down..”
I love these hip-hop jams to get the weekend started and everyone pumped up. I hope that everyone can relive these talents whether you grew up knowing them or not, so let’s get turned on!
