N.O.R.E. brought the hood Olympics to life for his first visual from the upcoming Student Of The Game album. The track, “Tadow” bridges N.O.R.E. and the “trap” sound together for the first time and features Pusha T, 2 Chainz and possibly somebody else:
“Actually, Fat Joe brung me this record. Fat Joe heard the record and said, ‘Yo, I never heard you a new school-sounding era, or a new school-sounding beat the trap beats. So, I took the beat. I laid it. After hearing it, I felt like I shouldn’t do something like this by myself.”
A few of N.O.R.E.’s rap pals showed up for the shoot including Raekwon, Capone, newcomer Troy Ave & more. MTV was on hand of the Will Millons directed shoot and captured the highlights below.
