Havoc Reminds He’s 1 Of Hip-Hop’s Best Double Threats With A Tough Beat & Verse For Cormega (Audio)
Queens, New York meets the Queen’s country on this collaboration between Queensbridge veterans Cormega and Havoc and British MC Giggs. “Ironic” is the latest reminder that while Havoc is beloved for his Mobb Deep beats, dating back to Juvenile Hell, he was first introduced as a rapper—and a really good one. Following his The Silent Partner project (with all beats made by Alchemist), “Ironic” is a clear reminder that H-A-V’ has B-A-R-S.
At the top of the track, Havoc delivers a seriously tough verse, followed by an even harder hook. He even mentions Killa Black, Hav’s deceased brother and subject of the Mobb Deep classic “Temperature’s Rising,” as one of the reasons his heart turned cold. ‘Mega then joins the mob with his signature streetwise bars, dropping some jewels for the people. Take, for example, knowledge-rich gems like “Everything you tryin’ to do, I already did / Even if you wish me death, I already lived” and “Hate is no different than love that ain’t genuine / Art imitates life, I convey realism.”
