Noreaga on New Album ‘5E’, Drug Addiction and Working with Nas

Earlier this month we celebrated the 20-Year anniversary of the iconic N.O.R.E. album with our own version of “Banned From TV”. And today Noreaga stops by Sway In The Morning to talk about his return to the game with the new album 5E. The 11-track album features Fat Joe, Tory Lanez The-Dream, Sevyn Streeter, Jadakiss, Wyclef Jean, Pharrell and more. As always Nore has some of the best interviews and he did not disappoint this time around either, sharing some classic industry stories and talking about his father’s bout with heroin addiction and how young people today need to be more cautious with the drug use. Watch the full interview below and listen to 5E.
