Havoc's Twitter Got Hacked So Let's Imagine Musicians' Twitter PasswordsBy Luke Winkie
Illustration by Alex Cook
This week, Havoc of seminal Queensbridge rap duo Mobb Deep got his Twitter hacked. This accounted for approximately 15 minutes of internet jokes before everyone forgot about it. At this point it’s an incident that might as well have happened 10 million years ago, but because I’m currently responsible for the dumbest column in the universe, my editor immediately gchatted me and here we are. Nobody knows how Havoc’s Twitter got hacked, but I would like to believe someone typed his name and “shookone” into the password field and grabbed access. So naturally, we figured it might be worth 10 seconds of your internet time to read our guesses ofwhat other musicians’ Twitter passwords might be.
