NOE, a rapper from Baltimore, Maryland that’s run with Harlem Diplomat Jim Jones for years, most notably as a key component of the DipSet offshoot ByrdGang, sounds like Jay Z an awful lot. Jones even admitted to acquiring the rapper for his crew in a large part due to his uncanny vocal resemblance to the Brooklyn rapper who has had friction with the Dips in the past: “I ain’t gonna front. [NOE’s similarity to Jay] tickled me too because I knew that would just irk a person like ‘Oh God!’ That gotta hurt.”
