Going to prison was maybe the best things to happen to Victor Santiago Jr. While in the slammer Santiago became known as N.O.R.E. (or Noreaga), kicking off his rap career in 1996. In true bad-boy fashion, N.O.R.E. takes his name from the former Panamanian dictator Noriega. Since then he’s dropped five albums, with a sixth calledS.U.P.E.R.T.H.U.G. that’s been on the way for some time now. In the mean time, N.O.R.E. has been keeping busy by going vegan and giving up the drink. But don’t fret, we’re sureS.U.P.E.R.T.H.U.G. will still be pretty badass.
