N.O.R.E. is Changing His Name to P.A.P.I.

It means Power Always Proves Intelligence. It was between that and “Good Belt”, because he stays with a good belt. True story.

“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.”

P.A.P.I. will drop his new video for “Tadow” ft. 2 Chainz, Pusha T & French Montana on Sunday, check out a teaser below.
