Es wäre der Nachfolger zum 2000er Gold Release „The Reunion“, das CNN Album, welches gerade für Ende Oktober angekündigt wurde. „Channel 10“ soll es heissen,.. und uns alle umhauen, sagt die Pressemitteilung. Aber lest doch einfach selber:
Legendary New York rappers Capone-N-Noreaga come together again to release their first album as a group in 8 years. The album, Channel 10, is the follow up from their 2000 gold-selling release – The Reunion.
“I’m proud to be working on a CNN album, a lot of people have been begging for this to come out”, N.O.R.E. explains. He goes on to describe his excitement about recording with Capone. “We recorded the whole album in the studio together. We want the music to be really good and it came out hot! Plus we own our masters!”
Capone elaborates, “All the past albums had obstacles -this time we were able to come together in the studio. Record together, not over the phone, in different cities. It really shows in the music, we are really interacting in the whole album. We are giving the fans a whole different feel, a whole different texture and it is going to show in our music.
Capone-N-N.O.R.E. enlisted DJ Premier, The Alchemist, STK, Grammy Award winners Play & Skills and Hazardous Sounds for production. Fat Joe, The Clipse, Dogg Pound, Maino, Uncle Murder, Picalo, and Charlie Hustle make guest appearances.
Devoted followers will be excited to hear that the Queens based duo will release their first single this month, “Follow The Dollar” produced by The Alchemist. They will be shooting the video at the end of the month.
C-N-N met in 1992 while serving kitchen duty together at Collins Correctional Facility in New York. In 1996 they released their first single, Illegal Life” through Penalty Records. Unfortunately, their album releases stalled throughout the years because of Capone’s incarcerations and the duo only released 2 albums as a group.
C-N-N’s Channel 10 front begins on October 21st 2008 on SMC Recordings.
