Added The Video. Noreaga starts talking about Pharrell at 06:55.
New York City rapper and former Capone-N-Noreaga member N.O.R.E. made an appearance on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club on August 17 for an almost 20-minute long interview that touched on everything from his relationship with Pharrell Williams to the end of Capone-N-Noreaga. The interview kicked off with N.O.R.E. once again addressing the beef that came about with the release of Prodigy’s book “My Infamous Life.” Later in the interview N.O.R.E. went on to speak on his relationship with rapper/producer Pharrell and how he never seemed to be acknowledged for helping launch Pharrell and The Neptunes‘ music career with “Superthug.”
“The other day we shot the video, it was real hard to get Pharrell for the video. Lil’ Wayne was like so easy. So it was real hard to get Pharrell for the video. So we finally got Pharrell and it was like I just wanted to run away from him because it was so hard. He was in the middle of recording your boy’s Fabolous and Ne-Yo. Cool, Fabolous and Ne-Yo but I’m N.O.R.E. Come walk across the street,” said N.O.R.E.
“And it kinda got me a little. I was on a 15-minute wait. He walked over, we did it, and when he left I was like me and him had to talk. And he must have sensed something and the very next day he called me…He called me and he said ‘Yo N.O.R.E., I apologize. I was rushing and all that.’ But he finally admitted that. He was finally like ‘Yo, if it wasn’t for ‘Superthug’.’ And I don’t care if he said it to the world; it meant the world to me.” Thanks to DjGreen702.
