Capone-N-Noreaga Sign With SMC, Embark On Comeback

Posted By on April 17, 2008

    The rap duo, Capone-N-Noreaga, are about to make a comeback on the rap scene. They recently signed a new deal with SMC Recordings, a San Francisco-based label. The new deal will bring Capone-N-Noreaga's follow up to their The Reunion album. SMC co-founder Ralph Tashjian, the rap duo along with the rest of SMC's artist roster which includes Killer Mike and Pastor Troy, will all benefit from the freedom that comes with an indi label. “We have the best of both worlds–the flexibility and connection to the streets of an independent label and the ability to reach the masses that major label distribution affords,” Tashjian said.

    SMC Recordings is distributed by Fontana/Universal and handles the distribution for Tashjian's Atlanta-based label called Grind Time Official. There is currently no release date or title for the new album from Capone-N-Norega, but it will mark their first official release in eight years.
