Tommy Boy Reissues presents an exclusive limited edition pressing of Capone-N-Noreaga's "The War Report" on October 22, 2021, in celebration of Tommy Boy's 40th anniversary. Hailing from Queens, New York, Capone and Noreaga first crossed paths while serving time in prison. Upon their release, the duo ventured into the studio, crafting their debut album, "The War Report," which marked the inception of Capone-N-Noreaga in 1997. This now-cult classic album exuded strong underground vibes, signifying a pivotal moment in Hip Hop by introducing a more hardcore sound. It is credited with revitalizing East Coast Hip Hop and ushering in a return to realistic, gritty street aesthetics. Despite its underground roots, the album achieved significant commercial success. Lead by hit singles such as "L. A., L. A.," "T. O. N. Y. (Top of New York)," "Closer," and "Illegal Life," "The War Report" has been certified Gold by the RIAA and continues to receive airplay on radio stations worldwide. N.O.R.E.'s unique lyrical style and Capone's streetwise vernacular, infused with Five Percenter references, injected new energy into the Gangsta Rap subgenre, instantly propelling Capone-N-Noreaga to underground stardom and solidifying their status within the hardcore Hip Hop community.
