Capone-n-Noreaga (CNN for short) have been on the brink of blowing up for what seems like their entire career. However, despite the hype they’ve generated throughout the years, they’ve never been able to take that next step into the elite ranks of hip-hop duos like Mobb Deep and the Clipse. Thus, they have finally adopted the classic mantra of ‘when all else fails, role up your sleeves, put your hardest thug face on, and try to sound as badass as is humanly possible.’ Their new single, Follow the Dollar is as grimy as it gets. The Queensbridge emcees trade street reports back and forth over a subterranean, laser-infused Alchemist beat that makes the Neptunes’ grittiest work sound like Beethoven. Seriously, it’s terrifying. The track will appear on their upcoming reunion album, Channel 10 (out October 21).
