Ice T, Too Short, Yo Yo and Kurupt Support Havoc Da MouthPiece’s Proclaim To “Go Hard” It’s “Gaim Chng3r” Time

                            
Los Angeles – Straight outta’ South Central Los Angeles, Havoc Da MouthPiece hails as one of the true originators of West Coast gangsta’ hip hop! Real hip hop heads recall Havoc as a standout pioneer, spearheading the West Coast reign when he was the front man for the rap crew South Central Cartel aka SCC. The group were the first ‘left’ coast rappers to sign to Def Jam and nurtured a loyal cult following with hits like “U Gotta Deal Wit Dis,” “Pops Was a Rolla,” All Day Everyday,” “Eastside-Westside” and “It’s an S.C.C Thang.”
Ironically, Havoc, a Chicago native, also has roots nestled deep in the legacy of R&B as well. Havoc is not only a rap legend, but he is also the son of legend. His father, Robert “Squirrel” Lester was one of the founding members of the legendary soul group the Chi-Lites.
