  • It's interesting that Victor (N.O.R.E.) Santiago commences this bangin' collection of thug rap with an apology for his last effort. He was unfocused, understandably, with the loss to jail time of his partner in the erstwhile Capone-n-Noreagea duo Kiam "Capone" Holley. But he rapidly shows he's going to set matters to rights with a swift one-two punch to gangsta rapper pretenders in "Nothin'," and a freewheeling track called "Grimey" that's one of the most commercial cuts on offer here. GOD'S FAVORITE finds N.O.R.E. back on top of his game in a wide-ranging set that encompasses hard-core gangsta rap and a lift from Cyndi Lauper's "Time after Time."
  • The album is prefaced by a collection of skit phone calls from Santiago's peers including Nelly, Ice T, and Nas, all paying their respects to this lifer's return to form in the street-life stakes. He shows their respect is justified again and again on cuts such as "Mr. CEO," a skewering of big money in the music biz, and "Live My Life" which features an appearance from the inimitably throaty Ja Rule. But ultimately it's in the regretful, angry "Black Clouds" that we get a true glimpse into the rapper's tortured soul.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (8/8/02, p.82) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...The king of the ignorant non sequitur is only as good as the producers who fill in the spaces between his disjointed phrases. On that level...NORE is nothing short of genius..."

Spin (8/02, p.116) - 6 out of 10- "...N.O.R.E is pumping on all cylinders, his music can induce even library-card-carrying citizens to wild out like card-carrying members of the Lox fan club....On GOD'S FAVORITE, the producers are certainly pouring the good stuff..."

Vibe (1/02, p.124) - 3 discs out of 5 - "...Bangs hard with frenzied energy..."

NME (Magazine) (7/20/02, p.44) - 7 out of 10 - "...He has one trick up his sleeve...and it's a good 'un. There are few vocalists who compliment production dons The Neptunes quite as forcefully as NORE..."
