Earlier in the year, it was reported that N.O.R.E. officially changed his rap moniker to P.A.P.I., and that he planned to release his upcoming album, Student of the Game, under his new alias. Now, as he continues to prep the project that he said is “totally different,” P.A.P.I. reveals the official release date for his new solo album.

P.A.P.I. took to his “Audio Pheed” and posted an announcement revealing the release date of his forthcoming solo album,  Student of the Game, as April 16th.

N.O.R.E. stated:

It’s your boy, N.O.R.E. – P.A.P.I… I’m just letting the people know, as of now April 16th, Student Of The Game.

At the time N.O.R.E. revealed his new alias, he revealed the meaning of the acronym:

“I like to have my acronyms poppin’ so P.A.P.I. is Power Always Proves Intelligence.”
