AllMusic Review by

Mobb Deep fans have waited a long time for the solo debut of Havoc (who comprises one half of the revered Queens hip-hop group). THE KUSH (2007) carries a feel that will be familiar to Mobb Deep devotees: dark, swirling, and full of a sense of creeping dread and menace. Long lauded for his unique production skills, Havoc does not disappoint on that count, but his rapping, which couches hard tales of New York street life in a hypnotic delivery, is equally impressive. "Be There," "I'm the Boss," and "Hit Me Up" are among the highlights on the opening salvo from this iconic figure of East Coast rap.
