NORE Signs to Roc

Posted By on July 23, 2004

The Roc-A-Fella Records roster continues to blossom as Nore of CNN has joined the label, quenching the rumor mill’s chatter.

Nore had previously been an artist on Def Jam Records and had released a song and video with partner Capone earlier in the year called “Yes Sir.”

But, slowly Nore has began to work with Roc rappers like State Property member Peedi Crak on “N***a Rican.”

Def Jam released Nore’s last album, God’s Favorite. Through Def Jam, Nore had an imprint called Militainment Records that was going to put out rappers Mussolini and Maze.

Thugged Out Militainment’s “Whatup2dahood” Mixtape/DVD was released earlier this year and features music and live footage from Capone, Noreaga, Muse, Maze, Dwnlzy, and many others.

Last week, Roc-A-Fella announced that Queens-based rapper Grafh was added to the team as well. Presently there is no release date for a new Nore album nor is there an update on the status of CNN.
