This month, rapper Noreaga will take his quest to become healthy one step further, as part of his own 100 Miles & Running challenge.
The Queens emcee has laid out an ambitious workout regimen that will require him to run 100 miles over the full month of September.
His efforts will be chronicled weekly through Twitter (Twitter.com/Noreaga) and his My Nike account (My.Nike.com/SuperThugNore).
Part of Noreagas aggressive workout campaign is due to a $5000 bet with fellow artist and friend Busta Rhymes, who challenged Nore to lose the poundage hes gained and resemble the slender Noreaga seen on the cover of CNNs classic debut War Report.
My man Bus Ive been telling him Im about to go in the gym, Nore explained. I had fell off I was big as a house; big, fat, and sloppy. I said I was in the gym and he said I dont even believe you So I said lets make a bet. He said lets bet $5000. So its on. Its no specific weight, but I gotta be looking like the N.O.R.E. album, those old Nore pictures. The bet is on!
At the end of September, Noreaga will update fans on exactly how much weight hes lost.
Earlier this year, Noreaga reunited with fellow CNN member Capone to release their third studio album, Channel 10.
At press time, Noreaga is also finalizing tracks on his sixth album, S.O.R.E.
