Noreaga (also known as NORE or N.O.R.E.) is a rapper from Queens, New York. He is a member of the hardcore rap duo, Capone-N-Noreaga (also known as C-N-N), alongside Capone. Aside from the C-N-N duo, he has had a very successful solo career, which initially had a more hardcore edge to it, but later adapted a more pop-friendly sound. He also included reggaeton in his style by the mid 2000's, more specifically on his 2006 "N.O.R.E. y la Familia" album.
