Capone-N-Noreaga (C-N-N for short) is a hip hop duo that consists of Capone (Kiam Holley) and N.O.R.E.(Victor Santiago). The two grew up in the housing projects of Queensbridge and Lefrak City (both in Queens, New York), and met each other in jail in 1992 while doing kitchen duty.
In 1997, C-N-N released their debut trend-setting album, ‘The War Report’. With exquisitely dark tracks crafted by Lord Finesse, Havoc (of Mobb Deep), Clark Kent, and a number of other acclaimed producers, ‘The War Report’ became an instant classic. The unique chemistry of Noreaga’s unorthodox lyrical delivery combined with Capone’s street-wise slang, established the duo as a household name within the Hardcore hip hop community.
The next 17 years would see a further 3 album releases, stints in Prison, and a break up, before announcing their reformation in 2013.
