Now that he’s free of any traditional “label deal,” N.O.R.E. is taking his aggressive lyrical style to the next level, and he’s so confident in his new approach that, on this newly-leaked cut, he promises that the Tuneheads’ rates will go up another $20K thanks to his brutal rhymes. Flowing over the ‘heads’ classic hardcore beat, he makes clear that, in the mean streets of NYC, one wrong move can lead to someone tearing your Face Off! Raekwon‘s verse might seem somewhat underwhelming by the Wu-Tang emcee’s own standards, but Tony Sunshine‘s hook and backing vocals invest the track with plenty of dirge-style appeal. If you’re craving more pure, raw, uncut N.O.R.E., be on the lookout for his upcoming S.O.R.E. mixtape (which currently has no set release date).
