When "la music de Harry Fraud" drops, you know you're about to hear that heat. Harry Fraud, an Irish American Hip Hop music producer born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, first rose to fame as the beatsmith behind "New York Minute", a 2009 anthem featuring Bad Boy's French Montana alongside Jadakiss and Nicki Minaj. Ever since, it hasn't been hard to separate Harry Fraud from the rest of the button punchers. His tireless work ethic, commitment to quality sound and ear for talent and instrumentation have facilitated the young producer's meteoric rise to sought-after hitmaker.
In 2011, Fraud's radio smash "Shot Caller" with French Montana caught the attention of numerous industry heavyweights, including P. Diddy and Rick Ross. The two moguls jumped on the remix, and both the original and the remix are now in heavy, heavy rotation across the nation. After dropping "Shot Caller", Fraud followed up with yet another mainstream hit: "Stoner's Night 2" with Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J. Then, the wave went underground, with Fraud releasing two critically acclaimed indie singles in one week: The New York City posse cut "Bars & Hooks" with AWKWORD, Sean Price, The Kid Daytona & The Incomparable Shakespeare; and "Low", the lead single off Kid Daytona's forthcoming Interlude II LP.
In only a few years, Harry Fraud has put together a powerful catalogue, featuring collaborations with many of this generation's most influential Hip Hop artists. From mainstream to the underground Fraud has enlisted a veritable who's-who of the rap game, including French Montana, Jadakiss and Nicki Minaj, P. Diddy and Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J, Sean Price and The Kid Daytona, Das Racist, Styles P, Fat Joe, Action Bronson, Mistah FAB and bringing the former duo of Vast Aire and Vordul Mega back together for the first time in a decade Cannibal Ox.
Meanwhile, Harry Fraud has demonstrated to aspiring producers the plausibility of expanding the production horizon. For the past seven years, Fraud has composed original music for the International Emmy Awards and, in late 2010, received the highest acclaim possible from perhaps America?s harshest critic, Simon Cowell. "Sitting here tonight" he said from the podium, I actually just want to pay tribute to someone else. Can I just hear the walk-up music again?? [music plays]
That is a hit record,? he said about Fraud?s composition.
