If your tastes in hip-hop run to the gritty, street-ready and Northeastern, chances are Havoc, Styles P. and Raekwon are three of your Favorite Rap Stars. Hearing all three rhyme on one record may sound like the stuff that dreams are made of, but I assure you that we’re in reality. On the latest single off his freshly-minted junior set, the Mobb Deep member’s own head-noddable sample work bangs in the back as he trades intricate, hard-nosed verses with his D-Block and Wu Tang-affiliated colleagues. As for which of these NYC titans spit the standout 16, I’ll let Booth readers lay down the final verdict. Favorite Rap Stars can be found, along with previous singles Life We Chose and Cash Flow, on Havoc’s 13 LP, released today via Nature Sounds.
