Harry Fraud

“La Musica de Harry Fraud.” Every time you hear that two-second snippet, you know you’re in for something good. From the commercial heavy-hitters (Wiz Khalifa, Rick Ross) to the Marijuana MCs (Curren$y, Smoke DZA), to New York’s hip-hop champs, young and old (Action Bronson, Kool G Rap), Fraud’s classy, brassy samples are beloved by all. On his latest mixtape, Adrift, Fraud doesn’t call upon one or two of his pals for rhymes; he enlists an entire fleet of flowsters. All of the aforementioned names are featured on the 23-song tape. But wait, there’s more! You’ve got tracks featuring Pusha T, Danny Brown, Fat Trel, and even Mac Miller, as a treat for the kiddos. The varied performers are united by Fraud’s keen eye for rich orchestral samples and commanding drums, and despite the over-stuffed guest list, Adrift never threatens to sink under its own weight. Just be prepared to hear “La Musica de Harry Fraud” A LOT.
