Calgary, AB – On Jan. 15, our friends over at True Rhythm and Just Haze bring N.O.R.E. (aka: Noreaga) to Calgary for a show at Dickens Pub. N.O.R.E. is a Queens hip-hop and reggaetron artist who started off his career as one half of the East Coast hip hop duo Capone-N-Noreaga (C-N-N) with Capone. As a solo artist, his work has been been all over the place. He’s put out Spanish reggaetron and hip-hop, and he’s collaborated with everyone from Kanye, Nas and Busta, to Jadakiss, Bun B, and more.
A few years ago N.O.R.E. announced via MTV that his forthcoming album would be his last album. Following the drop of this project, N.O.R.E. plans to completely stop touring and releasing albums in favour of focusing on the CEO role as his own Militainment Business. In October 2015 N.O.R.E. tweeted out that his last album would be arriving in July. So it looks like his days as a touring MC are numbered. You’re not going to want to miss this one.
This show also coincides with the album release party for local artist rapper Frenzy. Most recently, Frenzy hosted the KOTD #FrostBite2 event in Calgary alongside Dizaster, and got a sweet KOTD-sponsored video release. The show also features opening support from Psych Ward Kidz, Willy Snypes, Benjimin, and Damion Jones.
And to make things even better, we’ve teamed up with True Rhythm to give away a pair of VIP Meet & Greet tickets to the show. Each ticket includes access to the show, a private VIP meet & greet with N.O.R.E., an autograph and photo with him, no-line and no-cover, and a private VIP drink service area with seating for the show. Peep full contest entry details after the jump.
