Event: Capone-N-Noreaga @ Jazz Café, London – 20 Oct

For any discerning hip hop connoisseur worth their weight in dollar bills, the letters C-N-N hold great significance. Otherwise known as Capone and Noreaga the titans hailing from Queens, New York still stand strong in the hip hop hall of fame and have weathered the storm of change and continued to enjoy success in an ever-evolving scene.

 

Being no strangers to controversy and adversity, C-N-N have managed to maintain long standing and consistent careers both together and in their solo endeavours. Following Capone’s notorious stint in the big house straight after the release of their critically acclaimed and hugely successful debut album ‘The War Report’, Noreaga held down the fort and released highly accomplished solo albums collaborating with the likes of Nas and featuring hits like Super Thug and Oh No both showcasing a slightly different style of futuristic production from the then up-and-coming producers The Neptunes.

The War Report still holds a special place in hip hop history featuring production from such greats as Marley Marl and Lord Finesse, and collaborations from a host of talent from Tragedy Khadafi to Busta Rhymes. This October London hip hop heads will be treated to a rare chance to see the legendary duo live at the world famous Jazz Cafe in Camden.

This show is a must have addition to all hip hop enthusiasts’ calendars and as if seeing the legendary duo in action wasn’t enough, event goers will also be treated to a warm-up DJ set from the tenacious long-standing hip hop guru Shortee  Blitz.

7pm – 11pm // Monday 20th October 2014 @ The Jazz Café, 5 Parkway, Camden, London, NW1 7PG
