Label: Penalty Records Worst Song: "Wethuggedout" f/ Missy Elliott
BAD BEATSLAZY LYRICSHARDCORE FAILOUT OF STEP
After CNN's classic 1997 debut, The War Report, and Noreaga's solid debut solo album, N.O.R.E., Victor Santiago dropped this dud that featured cheap in-house producers (save for a couple of contributions from The Neptunes) and Nore adopting a super lazy flow that made him sound like he wasn't into the idea of recording an album in the first place. On Capone-N-Noreaga's second album, The Reunion, in 2000, Nore confirmed his disinterest in the album by rhyming: "Melvin Flynt drop, my whole collasso stop/I can't believe I fucked up and made a half-ass album/My excuse is, my pops just died/And I ain't wanna make music, my pops just died." Yeah, that sounds about right.
