However, in late 2006 there was speculation that the producer was at odds with label figurehead 50 Cent due to creative differences musically, but was later proven false by both of their representatives. It was however proven true in late 2009 when it was reported that 50 Cent dropped the duo from the label[1].

Havoc is renowned among serious hip-hop fans as one of the prominent figures during the mid-1990s for his hard-hitting and stripped-down beats complementary to the RZA's work on Wu-Tang Clanprojects. Following The Infamous, he tweaked his skills and transitioned to a more atmospheric production style that incorporated samples from classical music, most notably visible on the 1996 albumHell on Earth. As an MC, he is known for his hardcore lyricism, deep voice, and consistent flow. He also contributed background vocals and a verse on Black Moon's debut album Enta da Stage in 1993.

In July 2009, Havoc was featured alongside Raekwon in J Dilla's music video for "24K Rap" off of the Jay Stay Paid album, the video was directed by Derek Pike.

In 2010, Havoc produced a beat for Eminem which resulted in a hidden untitled song on Eminem's album Recovery.
