When Harry Fraud Speaks We Listen
Harry Fraud has quickly risen as New York rap’s go-to producer since helming French Montana’s anthemic “New York Minute” featuring Jadakiss (and later, Nicki Minaj and ostensibly every rapper in the Tri-State Area) and “Shot Caller.” He’s also produced tracks for everyone from Action Bronson and Rick Ross to Riff Raff. His “La Musica de Harry Fraud” sonic signature vies for one of rap’s most recognizable drops, though he’s not much of an outward showman himself. Fraud prefers to be in the studio, working. Sometime after 2am, in a hazy, weed-laced room at Premier Studios in Times Square, the quiet Brooklyn native put finishing touches on his upcoming EP and talked with Sound of the City.
