Noreaga Name-Checks Chris Arreola

In one of my several alternate lives, I review music for HipHopSite.com (recently relaunched with a spiffy new look... peep it). Boxing and hip hop have a long history together, and it's always fun to catch boxing references in different songs.

It only took one review since the relaunch to find a fairly surprising one. In the chorus for the final track, "Pablo Doe," on DJ Green Lantern and Styles P's The Green Ghost Project, guest star Noreaga drops this line: "Hit hard like Arreola."

Is Victor Santiago Jr. a big fan of the sweet science, or did he simply write himself into a corner and need a word to rhyme with "pistola?" Is the Nightmare accomplished enough to have his name dropped in a fashion usually reserved for the Mike Tysons and Manny Pacquiaos of the world?

You make the call!

There is an extensive connection between hip hop and boxing, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

I imagine NORE is actually a big fight fan.
