N.O.R.E Changes His Name, Again, For New Album [Audio]

Rapper Victor Santiago Jr. has gone by Noreaga and N.O.R.E. (Niggas On the Run Eating), and now the Queens rapper is switching up his steez once again. In a recent interview with MTV News, the super thug revealed that he will go by the name P.A.P.I. for his up-coming album, Student of The Game.

“I wanted to do something totally different for the album,” N.O.R.E P.A.P.I. told MTV News, adding that he mulled over a couple of other aliases before coming up with P.A.P.I. “Sometimes if you’re lost, the best way to find where you’re at is to go to the beginning,” he added. “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.”
