What's in a name? Not much, at least in hip hop circles. Rap luminaries seem to change names as often as they change their socks (at least, we hope they change their socks). N.O.R.E. is changing his name to P.A.P.I., an acronym for Power Always Proves Intelligence, for his forthcoming album, Student of the Game. "Sometimes if you’re lost, the best way to find where you’re at is to go to the beginning," he told MTV. "My mother doesn’t even call me Victor, my father has never called me Victor, my teachers didn’t even call me Victor. My name in Lefrak City and my name in Queens is actually P.A.P.I., it’s not even N.O.R.E.” With the announcement, N.O.R.E. joins the ever-growing dustbin of disposed rap monikers.
