N.O.R.E.

Sometimes known as Noreaga, this Puerto Rican rapper got his start when he met fellow rapper Capone in prison. The ex-convicts partnered up when they were released from the clink in 1996, but Noreaga was forced to go solo when Capone was arrested again in 1997. The move worked out well for Queens-based N.O.R.E., who worked with The Neptunes and Swizz Beatz on his solo record, which went platinum.
