HIP-HOP | N.O.R.E., Foxy Brown, A.Z., and Kool G 

Foxy Brown may be best known for her work with Jay-Z, including the single "I'll Be" while being signed with Def Jam for almost a decade. She's tough and unfiltered like rapper Kool G, founder of the subgenre, Mafioso rap — hardcore, explicit, and indulgent. A.Z., also with Brooklyn roots, had a stint alongside Nas and released eight albums to date, while N.O.R.E., of Queens, made a name for himself in both the hip-hop and reggaeton worlds. He was signed to Busta Rhymes' label Conglomerate Records and you may remember the 2004 hit "Oye Mi Canto" (featuring Nina Sky) from his reggaeton duo, Capone-N-Noreaga. That's a lot of hip-hop fire in one room right there.

N.O.R.E., Foxy Brown, Kool G, and A.Z. play Saturday, February 7, at the Main Street Armory, 900 East Main Street. 7:30 p.m. $20-$60. mainstreetarmory.com.
