Mobb Deep’s Havoc is a lethal producer. “One of the best producers on the mic,” to quote Diamond D, Hav has laced tracks for Nas, Eminem, 50 Cent, Big Noyd, Cormega and a bunch of others over the last 20 years. Many would contest that Hav’s best work behind the boards is on Mobb Deep’s second, third, and fourth albums: The Infamous, Hell On Earth, and Murda Muzik.  The sinister-sounding beats had dirty drums, eerie keys, and samples that had Heads scratchin’ (for) in the pre-Internet days.

Now, through Hav’s label home Nature Sounds, the producer is selling a flash drive with drums, keys, and more to over 200 beats.

“I look for that gritty sound,” says Havoc in a press statement. “I don’t want nothing too clean, too sharp, or too perfect. Back when I first started producing, I wish I had a ready-made gritty drum kit, as opposed to something I would have bought at Sam Ash [Store] with a bunch of clean toms and hats.” He explains making his sources available: “It’s a gift. Why harbor all these cool sounds? I’d rather give them to the next generation.”

“This is not just another kit,” he explains. “This is the original sounds from my machine. It’s a piece of time. It’s a piece of history…Bottom line, this is something you want in your arsenal as a producer,” says Havoc. “You want the right tools in your toolbox.”

After years of knock-off/white label “kits,” Havoc is one of the first to offer up his sources while getting paid for it. The Infamous Kit is available for pre-order, and the flash-drive also includes both of Havoc’s Nature Sounds LPs, Kush and 13.
