Along with Fabolous' Young OG Project, it looks like we'll be getting a new N.O.R.E. album on Christmas day as well. Entitled N.O.R.E. Presents: DRINKS, the project has "Boardwalk Empire"-inspired artwork, which casts N.O.R.E. as Steve Buscemi's lead character, Nucky Thompson. Now you can listen to the first track we've heard from the album, the Sanogram-featuring "King Pins."
A tortoise-paced trap banger, the track has its star turning on the auto-tune for a hook before spilling out verses held close to chest with deft restraint. He locates Lil Wayne as his favorite rapper and name-drops OT Genasis' "CoCo" along the way.
Clean and dirty versions can be found to the left.
If you playin' with my name then you gettin' outta line
Watch how you drawin' that shit
Lil Wayne is my favorite rapper
Gotta grind for all of my shit
