N.O.R.E. is looking to do something different for his next album “Student Of The Game” and has decided to change his name to P.A.P.I., which stands for Power Always Proves Intelligence. Speaking to MTV, N.O.R.E. explains why he chose to change his name.

“Sometimes if you’re lost, the best way to find where you’re at is to go to the beginning. 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.”

N.O.R.E. is also planning on releasing the video for his single ‘Tadow’ featuring 2 Chainz, Pusha T and French Montana this Sunday. I have included a 30 second teaser for the visual.

Listen to the audio and watch the teaser below.
