Shook ones is dope but way played out! My favorite off “Infamous” beat wise is “give up the goods” & “trife life” Hell on earth would be “Cant get enough” & apostle’s warning” My fav hidden gem is “Everyday gunplay” THOSE BEATS BANG! If u hear Hell On Earth closely u can tell that they hit the red on that tape cause its loud as hell and those samples and drums almost distort WHICH IS A GREAT THING (finds hell on earth and slides in it).Theres way more bangers but off top those are my shit.

Yeah, I must agree that Havoc is wwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy underrated as a dope producer! He should have been had props like Premo, Pete Rock, & Large Pro to name a few! He did a bunch of “genius” beats! Just the way he came up with some of the beats he made. And also I agree with Tony Traxx, is Mobb still signed with G Unit? I thought that was a doomed deal when I first heard about it going down. The M O B B needs to get back on that gutta that put them on the map in the first place!

Its like everyone knows who he is but not because of some of the masterpieces he created.

Hell On Earth was pure fire and i aint even gonna start on The infamous.

Trife life is my favourite production of all time. People need to realise how amazing that shit is rahh!

Love Havoc! One of my all time favorites. I’m glad they mentioned Hell On Earth. That LP was bananas & def. had a horror movie type theme to it. I can listen to it front to back and never get bored. I thought Hav & Prodigy peaked right then & there.

Other favorites:
-Killahs Theme
-Hold Down the Fort
-Hit it From the Back
-Start of your ending
-Back At You
-Hectic **if this would see the light of day

Can’t believe you guys talk ’bout Hell On Earth and not mention Bloodsport!!… C’mon, that’s one of my favorite all time hip hop tracks. There’s a lot a gems on the HOE joint, Animal Instinct, Get Dealt With, Apostle’s Warning…Uff man, HOE is definatelly on my top 5 mainstream Hip Hop albums… Havoc, one of hip hop most incredible and underrated producers (and MC)… Peace, holla from Medellin, Colombia
