Hip hop name change news! N.O.R.E. is now going by P.A.P.I., which stands for Power Always Proves Intelligence. Here's another quotable about why, as told to MTV News.
“Sometimes if you’re lost, the best way to find where you’re at is to go to the beginning,” he explained. “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.”
What do you guys think of the name change? To accompany it, P.A.P.I. drops a teaser of his upcoming music video for "Tadow", which will feature 2 Chainz, Pusha T, & French Montana. View it in the Videos section here.
