Half and Half Presents: Harry Fraud

Harry Fraud has only recently come to my attention, but appears to have been lying in my 'I love that song, but didn't take the time to see who produced it' radar for a while. I think I can safely say that French Montana's 'Shot Collar' song is what launched his career into the big time, but he's been bubbling on the New York mixtape circuit for a couple of years now, working with some rap big-names. The production on the Action Bronson/RiFF RaFF track 'Bird on a Wire' was my first official introduction to him (I know a little slow, but a good introduction, no?). The pitched up saxophone riff, complemented by a haunting chord progression. It has been on repeat since its February release.  

Hailing out of Brooklyn, 'La Musica De Harry Fraud' is popping up everywhere. Andrew Noz did a great profile of him in The Fader - apparently his dad manages Mark McGrath? And at one point Sugar Ray?  (I am not suggesting any sense of benefaction here, just you know, *the music industry*). Whatever, his melodic and airy mixtape production reminds me of stuff coming out of the 1999-2005 east coast rap game, and he's working with some of the best. Big things to come, no doubt. Check out some of my favourites of his below.

I love Harry Fraud, the dude is like one of my new producers obsessions

I love these songs produced by him as well

The Rush - French Montana ft. SAS
- I like it a bit better than Shot Caller as a beat that is

Jackson Pollack - Maffew Ragazino ft. Das Racist
- pretty catchy, even pop but these guys make it better than pop

Phenom - Vast Aire
- First place I heard of him

Muslim Wedding - Action Bronson
