So I just decide to click on this interview and glance through it. I was actually looking for some new info on their upcoming album The War Report 2 but damn that. I found some much more interesting quotes. Surprising will be the correct word actually.
Many of you know who Nneka is. CNN had this vocalist as a guest on their track ‘Closer’ on the 1997 album The War Report. Got it? Now read below..
DX: I grew up down south in South Carolina. And when you guys dropped back in 1997, it was a big deal. “T.O.N.Y.” was a big deal. “LA, LA” was big deal. Every car I hitched a ride in had that disk in it. It left a big impression where I was at that point in time. One of the stand out tracks on that album for me was “Closer” featuring Nneka.
N.O.R.E.: The Clark Kent version or the Sam Sneed one?
DX: The Clark Kent version.
N.O.R.E.: Okay. Alright.
DX: Nneka’s having a big year right now.
DX: Nneka’s having a big year. She dropped an album that’s really popular right now, Concrete Jungle.
DX: She’s doing a lot things right now.
DX: My next question — I don’t know if it works now — but did you have an idea that she would be a successful solo artist, and will she make an appearance on Part II?
N.O.R.E.: Yo, you want me to keep it all the way real?
DX: Keep in one hundred. One hundred.
N.O.R.E.: I don’t even know who that is, man! Sorry! [Everyone laughs] For real, you’re telling me the chick we had on “Closer” is big right now?
DX: Yeah man, I’m serious. I believe she charted on Billboard, if I’m not mistaken.
N.O.R.E.: And what’s her name?
N.O.R.E.: I feel so unloyal right now.
DX: You might want to get her on this album if it’s not too late.
N.O.R.E.: And I had her on the first album?
DX: You had her in 1997.
N.O.R.E.: That’s crazy! Damn, I didn’t know that, B! Word. I didn’t know that.
Capone: We make legends, baby! [Laughs] The thing about it, she couldn’t get a deal probably without saying what she did before. “I was on The War Report.” How would that look on her discography? On her resume.
