Noreaga was a guest on Math Hoffa’s My Expert Opinion podcast when he discussed the difference between mainstream rappers and those who battle rap.
“It’s about the showmanship and that’s something, unfortunately, in battle rap, you can’t teach. That’s a experience [sic], said N.O.R.E. He then began to name people who have had the showmanship to battle like Joe Budden who Noreaga says choked during a previous match.
But when it comes to Eminem, Noreaga says it would be hard for him to get back into the battle arena and although he could probably out rap anyone, N.O.R.E says it would be the showmanship where Em would lack.
