'He's been the person ... who would call me and say, 'Yo I don't hear no records on the streets, son,' ' N.O.R.E. tells 'RapFix Live.'

N.O.R.E. is ready for the next chapter in his career. As half of the Queens, New York, rap duo Capone-N-Noreaga, N.O.R.E. dropped an underground rap classic with pair's 1997 debut The War Report. As a solo artist on a major label, he's made his mark with unforgettable street singles like "Superthug" and "Grimey." Now N.O.R.E. is looking forward to going independent and releasing his S.U.P.E.R.T.H.U.G. album and movie.
For the album, N.O.R.E. hooked up with his buddy Busta Rhymes, who will partner with Noreaga on the business end of things. "He's been the person, when I was away and wasn't around, who would call me and say, 'Yo I don't hear no records on the streets, son,' " N.O.R.E. said when he appeared on "RapFix Live" on Wednesday, using his best Busta impression. "He's my peer and he's also a fan, but he wants to see me win. So why do anything separate?"
N.O.R.E. hasn't signed to Busta's Conglomerate record label, but they have joined forces. "I've been down too long to be anybody's artist. So it's a partnership, Militainment and Conglomerate as partners for the S.U.P.E.R.T.H.U.G. album."
The accompanying film will blend long-form music videos with some acting, similar to what Jay-Z did with his 1998 cult favorite "Streets Is Watching." The flick will star N.O.R.E., Ice T, Lil Wayne, Slaughterhouse's Joell Ortiz and Fred the Godson, just to name a few.
As far as whether or not he will make another record with C-N-N partner Capone, N.O.R.E. isn't sure. "We're straight, we're brothers," he confirmed about their personal relationship. "As far as recording, I don't know yet."
Before he commits to another album, he needs to see Capone exhibit a passion for the music. "He has to love his job just as much as me, and I'm not judging him, but the thing is I actually love this," N.O.R.E. said.
