Hip-hop duo Havoc (3) (Kejuan Muchita) and Prodigy (Albert Johnson), who hail from the notorious Queensbridge Projects in Queens, New York, released their widely ignored debut album, "Juvenile Hell," in 1993 as teenagers, boasting production from the legendary Large Professor. After switching labels, the duo followed this with the breakthrough (and now classic) album "The Infamous" in 1995 and the similarly themed "Hell on Earth" in 1996. Since then, they have released several albums in an evolving style and had a Thomas Dolby-sampling hit, "Got it Twisted," in 2004. In 2006, after one album for 4th & B'way/Island/PolyGram, four albums for Loud Records, and one album for Infamous/Jive/Zomba/BMG, they signed with 50 Cent's Interscope/Universal-distributed G-Unit Records.
