It’s official, rap duo Capone-n-Noreaga are officially calling quits. After 15 years and 4 albums, including the classic The War Report, the duo, also known as CNN, has disbanded.
N.O.R.E. confirmed the split via Twitter, citing that all good things come to an end and he’d rather focus on his solo career.
“I'm not making another war report album or another N.O.R.E ALBUM IMMA MAKE THE 1st S.U.P.E.R.T.H.U.G album cause that what's good for now,” he tweeted.
“CNN was a great group. [...] Time has changed I must move on. [...] Doesn’t it hurt to watch a boxer still box when he’s heart isn’t in it that’s what the group feels like right now.”
CNN released a follow up to their classic War Report, last year, The War Report 2: Report the War. It was the last album from the duo and only sold 4,700 copies in its first week and came in at a sluggish 98 on the Billboard 200 charts.
