Let’s face it, when it comes to great songs, they would be nothing without the producer. There are only a handful of artists that can sound good if they go a cappella but the rest rely on a banging beat. Even sometimes we find that the lyrics may be trash but the production saves the song.
Harry Fraud is one of my favorite producers because even if you don’t hear, “La Musica De Harry Fraud”, his tracks always stand out. Fraud’s production is ethereal, chill and you can always lift your spirits while listening to his beats. I’ve listed my favorite hip-hop songs that he has produced for in chronological order.
New York Minute x French Montana Feat. Jadakiss (2009)
The first breakout song for Harry Fraud. If you listen to this, you will be able to identify any Fraud beat without his tag.
Shot Caller x French Montana Feat. Diddy, Rick Ross & Charlie Rock (2011)
His second hit that smashed the radios. The original is great but the remix is honestly best.
Bird On a Wire x Action Bronson & Riff Raff (2012)
Although this Bronson & Riff Raff track only ended up being a loosie, it is very popular among many with it’s almost addicting sound.
Sixty-Seven Turbo Jet x Curren$y (2012)
Cigarette Boats is a mixtape entirely produced by Fraud and although it’s hard to determine which track I like best, this is the one.
10 Bricks x Curren$y & Smoke DZA Feat. French Montana & Big K.R.I.T.
The Stage is an EP by Curren$y and Smoke DZA produced entirely by Fraud. This is the best song off the project.
4 The Money x Young Roddy (2013)
It’s only right that Fraud lays down beats for Roddy since he is affiliated with Curren$y’s Jet Life movement. “4 The Money” comes off Roddy’s, Good Sense 2.
These B*tches x Curren$y Feat. French Montana (2014)
Curren$y’s New Jet City really should’ve been album; it’s that good. Of course, Fraud pops up on this and my favorite track just happens to be produced by him.
Lava Glaciers x Riff Raff Feat. Childish Gambino (2014)
Neon Icon really wasn’t that bad of an album from Riff Raff but one stand out track has to be “Lava Glaciers.” Fraud and Gambino definitely save the day for this track.
Morals x Smoke DZA Feat. Snoop Dogg (2016)
This comes off Smoke DZA’s, He Has Risen, album that was entirely produced by Harry Fraud.
Dip’d In Coke x Juelz Santana Feat. French Montana & Cam’ron (2017)
Juelz Santana made a big comeback the past year and one of the best songs that came out was “Dip’d In Coke” with a great pairing of French and Cam’ron.
