N.O.R.E. and Sway Squash Beef On Air + Talk “Drunk Uncle” Project

You know that one uncle that’s always saying funny but inappropriate things at family dinner? Our good friend N.O.R.E. embodies that same character and has embraced it for his new mixtape “Drunk Uncle.” Playing off the cover of “Uncle Buck” on the album art, N.O.R.E. calls on the likes of Kool G Rap, Jadakiss, Capone and Ty Dolla $ign for the music as well as DJ Khaled, Aziz Ansari and Amber Rose for some classic skits.

Coming through the Sway in the Morning studios to speak on the project N.O.R.E. drops some gems and clears the air about a few things all while keeping the crew in stitches with his hilarious antics. Starting things off by opening up about Sway’s interview with Young Thug from a few months ago, N.O.R.E. clarifies that he was the first person to use the term ‘slime’ and has the evidence to prove it. There’s no hate for Thug though, N.O.R.E. just wants to make sure younger artists are educated about the people that came before them.

Going off this same subject N.O.R.E. clears the air about the situation that transpired on Twitter with Vince Staples after Staples said that 90’s music is over rated. N.O.R.E. reveals that the two spoke and had a great conversation calling Staples incredible smart and knowledgable of the facts.

Hilarity ensues as N.O.R.E. tells a few stories about inviting enemies to the same place without knowing it. From Ja Rule and Jack Thriller to Fat Joe and 50 Cent, N.O.R.E. is a straight shooter and isn’t with the beef. He speaks on people going after each others throne, something that flies in corporate America but not on the streets.

Ending the interview by talking through his new endeavors we hear info about his upcoming travel and food show. Bringing in DJ Khaled for the pilot in Miami N.O.R.E. says he’s on the quest for authentic black food. Check out the interview above and grab “Drunk Uncle” on iTunes or Datpiff.
