N.O.R.E. to P.A.P.I.

N.O.R.E. changed his name to P.A.P.I., an acronym for Power Always Proves Intelligence, for his 2013 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."
