Revered rappers like Miami’s Trick Daddy, Trina, and others stood at the table, told rare stories about their careers, and made some noise with a shot or other drink in their hands. Trick’s third appearance on the show, which aired last month, was bound to go viral like most of its episodes.
However, the internet did not focus on his thoughts about Verzuz or Dababi disaster. Trolls were more focused on another topic: the Trick “Eat a Booty Gang” philosophy.
“In Miami, Trick Daddy is venerated as my fellow and king,” says NORE. the new era. “He comes on the show and to be Trick Daddy and I notice we said the exact same thing the first time we saw him on an episode about Eat a Booty Gang. That’s one of those moments. This is my favorite moment lately, then right after the Grandmaster Caz show in The show is only for people.”
Grandmaster Caz of the Cold Crush Brothers is a pioneer in the game in every sense of the word. for him Three hour episode Highlights of his career accolades, such as his appearance in the first hip-hop feature film, Wild Style, and his thoughts on Jay-Z’s reference to Cold Crush in his 2001 song “Izzo (HOVA)”
Trick and Grandmaster Caz aren’t the only legends featured on the show. Farrell, Cameron, Nass, and others pulled out to talk about the highlights of their careers. These are the kinds of rare moments the show is known for.
“For me, it’s important that we bring in some of these pioneers and architects of culture because the history of culture is kind of lost on the youth,” DJ EFN He says. “They love this thing called hip-hop, but they don’t even know what it is or where it comes from. To have these people even teach us about the origins and beginnings of hip-hop, that’s very helpful, and it inspires us again.”
NORE (AKA Victor Santiago) and DJ EFN (AKA Eric F. Narciandi) have become skilled financiers of the most memorable moments not only in hip-hop but also in the podcast industry itself. When celebrating his fifth year in March, Drinking heroes Rise to the top of urban programming.

Hosted on Black Effect iHeartMedia Network, Drinking heroes It also has digital access to millions across YouTube, Revolt TV and podcast streaming services.
The podcast’s newfound achievement is a career high for EFN and NORE, who have been putting all of the show’s focus on rap and his seven other careers. For the most part, Capone-N-Noreaga rhymer has been avoiding the mic lately. He recently made some exceptions for his family and a lucky audience in Connecticut last month. However, during Fat Joe’s birthday in New York City in August, the rapper-turned-budfather hesitated to perform.
“I didn’t want to do that at all,” NORE recalls. “Fat Joe forced me. First of all, I don’t like cameras. That’s why during my anniversary I really asked people to use cameras. And I don’t want to do the show now.”
Since he doesn’t perform, NORE is also not 100 percent focused on music at the moment.
“I will not underestimate my legacy, and I will not respect hip-hop because I enjoy being more independent,” he explains. “I really enjoy it. It’s a little easier for me to talk rather than sit down and write rhymes and pick tunes all day. When I’m free and I want to, I’ll do it because now I don’t one hundred percent want to do that.”
Nuria can put his long music career in the back seat while working on pushing Drinking heroes forward and take on Love and Hip Hop: Miami. The Queens native, who has lived at 305 for the past 17 years, recently made his debut on the new season of the VH1 reality series with his wife Neri.
“Not having a better term, I’m a newcomer,” says Noor. “Ray J and Trick Daddy really taught me. They taught me how to get the scene done and ‘faster.’ They definitely helped me with that.”
While NORE’s reality TV career is taking off again, DJ EFN’s film projects are also climbing to new heights. After helping produce a large number of other podcasts under Drinking heroes Umbrella, Cuban-American podcaster has found a new home for his rap-inspired docu series go home. Since the premiere of the inaugural episode, Back home: Cuba, In 2013 on Revolt TV, EFN and his crew, Crazy Hood, traveled the world discovering hip-hop music in foreign countries such as Vietnam, Haiti and Peru. Now, the upcoming installments, Homecoming: Colombia And Homecoming: South Africa, on LL Cool J’s Rock the Bells music.
“It’s surreal,” says EFN. Dog, think about it: I’m a kid from Kendall, Miami, Florida, I just love hip-hop and he said, ‘Fuck it. I’m going to try doing some hip-hop with my friends from school.” Fast forward, I’m doing Zoom meetings with LL, and he says he loves the things I do. Let’s rock ‘n’ roll. It couldn’t have been better.”
EFN’s ventures into the film and marijuana industry, thanks to its new deal with TransCanna, along with the rebranding of Noreaga into a popular media personality and TV star are only helping to promote Drinking heroes Brand. As if that’s not enough, both hosts also have some ideas to make an even bigger impact on hip-hop around the world.
“I think it would be numb if we could offer what we do as a privilege to these different countries so they can do it themselves,” EFN says. “The other idea is Drinking heroes Documentary and above that, written film, like a comedy that we want to do based on Drinking heroes. ”
NORE and DJ EFN’s goal to document hip-hop with a single episode of alcohol is a testament to their dedication to the game. With an understandably high price for Drinking heroes Crew, there’s one thing that will never change while they’re in the lead: their loyalty to Miami-Dade County.
“Miami has been so good to me and weighed me down,” Nouri says. “I was born and raised in New York City, I will never get rid of my accent and I will never stop representing New York, but I have officially adopted a second city and they have adopted me especially when I got Trick Daddy saying I am a Miami guy at this point. So I felt very proud to be an honorary member of Miami This is a good feeling.”
