Veteran rapper N.O.R.E. has transformed his hip-hop notoriety into a successful television, including a gig as co-host of the popular televised podcast Drink Champs. Now the “Nothin'” rapper is swiftly taking over reality television territory as the 43-year-old and his wife, Neri Santiago has joined the cast of WE tv’s Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition. According to All HipHop, Monie Love and Tuff, Mally Mall and Treasure, and Siir Brock and Amber Laura will also star on the reality program aimed at mending romantic relationships.
