N.O.R.E has been in the music scene for over 20 years, and yet the Bronx spitter is just as relevant today than he was in the 90’s during his initial run. Most of his recent success is due to his journalistic career and his Drink Champs podcast, which interviews high profile guests every other week on Revolt TV. While the podcast has been taking up most of his time lately, it appears N.O.R.E has also been busy working on a new album called 5E which will hit stores on July 27th via Nas’ Mass Appeal Records.
After announcing the project Thursday morning, Noreaga decided to come through today and make the album available for pre-order on iTunes, ultimately sharing its tracklist in the process. From what we can see, the 11-song project will feature guest appearances from Fabolous, Fat Joe, The-Dream, Tory Lanez, Jadakiss, Pharrell, and many others.
To coincide with the album’s pre-order, Noreaga also liberated a new song in the process called “Don’t Know” featuring Fat Joe. The song can be yours for free when you pre-order the album now before it arrives next Friday.
Take a listen and let us know what you think.
