Rest in peace, Freaky Tah. Sitting down with MTV, Hav and P speak on wishing they had the opportunity to work with their fellow Queens-based quartet while they were still around.

“I definitely wasn’t checking for other people” Havoc revealed. “I missed a lot of stuff in the ’90s that I like now. I just had tunnel vision. There was a lot of dope acts that was out back in the ’90s, like the Lost Boyz. I never paid attention to their stuff.”

The Lost Boyz — a rap group from South Jamaica, Queens, New York — broke out in 1995 with their hit record “Jeeps, Lex Coups, Bimaz & Benz,” and though they were known for high-powered party anthems, Hav wasn’t a fan in their heyday. He is today, though. “Now, when I look back on it and I listen to their stuff now, it’s like, ‘Yo, they had that sh–.’ They always kept the party poppin’. I really appreciate their music, and I’m glad that they made it,” he said. “That’s ill that they are even a part of the era that we came from.”
