If you listen to enough hip-hop, you can smell a fake a mile away. Lots of rappers put on a gangsta façade in order to make some coin, never having actually lived anything they rap about. Nobody has ever questioned the authenticity of Mobb Deep alumnus Havoc, though, as it’s common knowledge that he is one of the few who actually back up their personae. On his latest effort, Havoc and guest Lloyd Banks embrace their street roots, informing listeners, “This the Life We Chose.” The artist’s own gritty, sampled boardwork backs him and his collaborator as they take aim at the fakes. This record is part of Havoc’s forthcoming album, 13, set to drop next month.
