“Hood Pride” – Review Of Capone-N-Noreaga’s The War Report 2: Report The War

By | 21 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/stream-capone-n-noreagas-the-war-report-2"> Few groups in the history of rap have displayed the sense of unity Capone-N-Noreaga has. While most coteries enjoy the highs of success and part ways during the downslide, CNN never experienced such glory days as a group and to this day, show that their bond is thicker than water by remaining together. Unassumingly making an impact with 1997's The War Report, the streets were represented by a manifesto of urban reality bites; shady drug dealers, ruthless theoretics and death all wrapped into a cinematic package that would soon carve out a legacy. Although there was a slight disclaimer. Seeing that Capone was incarcerated for much of the album's recording process, Noreaga fundamentally created his debut, in turn, dramatically affecting the duo's chemistry for future releases. Looking to take it back for the first time, Capone-N-Noreaga embark on The War Report 2: Report The War. A decent album whose shortcomings are magnified in the long shadow cast by its predecessor. Jumping right into it, the bulk of The War Report 2's first half is a bonanza of vintage mid-90s Hip-Hop that harbors on the group's nostalgic origins. In case you forgot their flagrant nature, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/capone-n-noreaga-pain-and-my-attribute-videos">"My Attribute"</a> is a chilly anecdote to jog your memory like it's running for its life.
