Capone-n-Noreaga - Grand Royal

Posted 7 years ago
Producer:
DJ Premier
Album:
Channel 10

Capone-n-Noreaga‘s second studio album dropped November 21st of 2000, which means that devoted fans have been waiting eight years, three months, and 11 days for the duo’s re-reunion album.  Now, the LP’s release is finally, finally in sight—Channel 10 is scheduled to drop next Tuesday, the 10th.  Though not a single, the newly-released Grand Royal should give listeners an idea of what Capone and N.O.R.E. have in store on the forthcoming album.  A hard-hitting, cleverly-arranged beat by East Coast legend DJ Premier (check out the constant, subtly claustrophobic trills in the background) sets the stage as CNN come out swinging, taking full advantage of the contrast between N.O.R.E.‘s gruff, aggressive rhymes and Capone‘s tightly-wound, higher-pitched flow.  Though previously-featured cuts Money and Follow the Dollar failed to elicit much excitement in the Booth, Grand Royal may well have what it takes to convince the doubters.
