God's Favorite [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
On Noreaga's long-awaited and oft-delayed third album, God's Favorite, the thuggish New York rapper returns with many of the same producers who contributed to his previous album, Melvin Flynt - Da Hustler 1999, namely Ez Elpee, the Neptunes, and Swizz Beatz. Likewise N.O.R.E. teams up with a gang of rappers on God's Favorite, many of whom had contributed to Melvin Flynt. There is one glaring difference between this album and its so-so predecessor, however: Noreaga comes out of the gate here both hungry and focused. Gone is the conceptual framing of Melvin Flynt, as God's Favorite simply consists of hard-hitting jams, one after the other, most of which center on hooks ...

There is one glaring difference between this album and its so-so predecessor, however: Noreaga comes out of the gate here both hungry and focused. Gone is the conceptual framing of Melvin Flynt, as God's Favorite simply consists of hard-hitting jams, one after the other, most of which center on hooks yet are filled with bars upon bars of hardcore rapping. As usual, the Neptunes turn in a couple head-spinners, in this case "Nothin'" and "Grimey." Swizz Beatz turns in some bangers, chief among them "Nahmeanuheard" and its remix, but the Neptunes steal the show throughout God's Favorite, continually lightening up Noreaga's thuggery with their candy-sweet, yet still tough, hooks. Above all, it's good to see N.O.R.E. stick to the basics on God's Favorite. As a rapper, he's as rough as they come and certainly has presence, but he doesn't have the charisma it takes to pull off a conceptual album such as what he tried to do on Melvin Flynt. That's why he works so well with producers like the Neptunes and Swizz Beatz. They take care of the song ideas and let Noreaga roam free to do what he does best, bring the heat, something he does here on God's Favorite in prime form.

    A Trip From Queens to the Neptunes

    Victor ¿N.O.R.E¿ Santiago¿s new album is an outstanding group effort. Nore has about twenty different people as guests on his album, which creates an excellent combination of different beats and voices. ¿Nothin¿ has an awesome beat and other songs like ¿Love Ya Moms¿ and ¿Grimey¿ definitely have unique lyrics. Nore and Ja Rule make an intricate combination of tones and styles on ¿Live my Life¿. The only issue on his album that becomes a bit repetitive is the subject of his previous label. It¿s obvious that he is much happier with Def Jam now, but why beat the subject to death? What puts Nore ahead of most other rappers is his Spanish background. He¿s able to rap about more things than the usual street thugs and drugs. One of the hottest albums of the summer, this cd is definitely worth your money.

    Grimey's Favorite

    First off I think it is best to keep it real, we all heard the Neptunes produced banger ''Nuthin'' believe me that is tearin up the rug at all the hot clubs right now. And for real if anyone deserves success with a Neptunes beat it is Mr NORE. He put them on the map when they did ''Superthug'' together off his debut joint. And now with the new album it's like they aint missed a beat, and I mean literally, cuz the beats on the album is straight bangin. Pop it in your ride or your crib and you¿ll have people asking you ¿D*mn who¿s song is that,¿ and of course you should reply ¿Why it¿s that new NORE joint.¿ Nore want back again to his roots by getting some Swizz produced track, and we all remember what happened when Swizz and Noreaga did ¿Pay Per View¿ of of the N.O.R.E. album ,yeah believe me that track is a classic. NORE is killin it once a gain check for ¿Nuthin,¿ ¿Grimey,¿ ¿Live My Life,¿ ¿Consider This,¿ and ¿Wanna be like him.¿ NORE is back with a new name and a new hot album.
