I don’t need to go into great depth about how important CNN‘s first album “The War Report” was to the Hip-Hop world. I will however attempt to analyse the impact that The War Report 2 has had, thirteen years after the original was released. Capone and Noreaga are widely regarded as Hip-Hop legends, and following on from their success of Channel 10, The War Report 2 seemed like a logistical path to follow. The question burning in the minds of Hip-Hop fans, was can they produce a classic sequel, equal to the original.

Here is a remix I found thanks to HipHopUpdate. It’s basically a megamix of Alicia Keys and Jay-Z’s track “Empire State of Mind” which features Hip-Hop legends Raekwon, CNN and Styles P. The remix has been lead by DJ Green Lantern who, as always, does an excellent job. You can listen to Raekwon, CNN and Styles P deliver their respective verses over the beat. You can listen to Alicia Keys x Styles P x CNN x Raekwon – Empire State Of Mind 2 on the player below.
