And if you are making a list of the greatest posse cuts of the Golden Era, you GOTTA have "Banned from T.V.". Listen, you might not have Nore on you greatest lyricist lists, but the dude spit some of the hottest street bars of the decade. You could hear the hunger in his verses throughout his solo debut, and "Banned from T.V." is no different. But when he tapped (used two "p's" because it's past tense) some of the greatest NY emcees for his posse cut, Nore had to come correct if he wanted to anchor the track. Nore rounded the track with fellow Queens emcee Nature, Harlem's own Cam'ron, two thirds of the Yonkers group with Jadakiss and Styles P, and the Bronx legend Big Pun (my personal top 5 dead or alive right there). The Swizz Beatz instrumental is easily recognized as soon as the horns drop. And the dark (so dark) and grimey video is a perfect match for the beat and lyrics.
So take a trip down memory lane (damn near 20 years ago..why are we so old) and peep the video for "Banner from T.V.". ANNNNNNNNNNND I also found a behind the scenes clip for the video. So peep that too.
