It’s been a busy weekend for beloved emcee Noreaga. First, NORE dropped his latest album, Drunk Uncle, a star-studded production featuring cameos from his partner-in-crime Capone, as well as Pharrell, Charlamagne Tha God, Jadakiss, Killer Mike and more.
To add to the sloshed theme of the weekend, the Lefrak, Queens legend released the first episode of his new podcast, Drink Champs, co-hosted by DJ EFN. NORE invited Fat Joe (who also appears on Drunk Uncle) to be his first guest on the podcast “where every day is New Year’s or your birthday.” Joey Crack appeared to promote his new joint album with Remy Ma, titled Platas o Plomo, inspired by Narcos. NORE, Joe and EFN chop it up, regaling listeners with exclusive, throwback behind-the-scenes stories from the streets and the industry, involving themselves, the late, great Big Pun, DMX and Puff Daddy, among others
If you are a true fan of hip-hop, this episode of Drink Champs is mandatory listening. NORE is, unsurprisingly, a more than engaging host and the emcees give you a glimpse into the realities of the rap hustle that you won’t get anywhere else. NORE and DJ EFN’s interview with Fat Joe can be heard below, as well as some footage. NORE’s new album, Drunk Uncle, can be purchased on iTunes here.
