All Music Guide - Leo Stanley
As Capone-N-Noreaga -- which naturally translates into the clever initials CNN -- were recording their debut album, Capone was sent to jail, leaving Noreaga to handle the majority of The War Report himself, with the occasional help of such stars as Nas. It's a testament to the talents of both Capone and Noreaga that C's absence is barely felt and The War Report turns into a stellar debut.

The only thing that makes The War Report a disappointment is the knowledge that it would have been an even better album if Capone had been able to participate in the entire recording. As it stands, it's merely superb.

    Classic by CNN

    This was a very, very good album by CNN. It was too bad at the time when Capone went to jail. If that wasnt the case, Capone could've been on more tracks. But regardless it's a classic album. A lot of memorable songs.
