Capone-N-Noreaga, the Queens duo behind The War Report, is reuniting for their first project together in five years. Lessons follows 2010’s The War Report 2: Report the War and it contains a number of returning guests (Tragedy Khadafi, for example) who have worked with C-N-N in the past.
On Monday, the pair unveiled the tracklist and artwork for Lessons along with a release date of June 12. A few days later, we get “3 on 3,” a blistering cut featuring C-N-N and Trag going toe-to-toe with The LOX. In what sounds reminiscent of the group’s 1997 days, every MC brings their signature style over the gritty production by Beatz n da Hood. As they say, it’s always been deeper than rap for them.
You can pre-order Lessons, which will be released on Penalty Records, on Amazon. Check out the tracklist below, where you can hear “3 on 3” too.
