Mobb Deep rapper HAVOC is launching a solo career with the release of his debut album THE KUSH next month (Sep07). The 33-year-old admits he's wanted to release a solo disc for years, but always ended up releasing his songs as Mobb Deep material instead. He tells Billboard.com, "Basically I had to put out a lot of Mobb Deep material, so that stopped me from putting out an independent kind of project. "I've been working on solo projects for a while, but management would always be like, 'Let's use this for Mobb Deep material...'"
