With the release of their Horsepower EP now behind them, Harry Fraud and Eddie B have now revealed plans to release a full-length album titled Paper, Piff & Polo. The emcee/producer duo recently appeared on Conspiracy Worldwide Radio to speak on both their upcoming album as well as their newly-released project.
During the interview, Fraud revealed the details of how the musical pair linked up and spoke on a birthday vacation that eventually led to the creation of their Horsepower EP.
“Me and Eddie we’ve known each other for probably 10 years. We’ve been working on music for a long time. I think that we’ve both been doing our thing independently. I’ve been doing my production thing and he’s been doing his rapping thing,” the Brooklyn beatsmith explained. “But he’s been using my beats and we’ve been going back and forth. And I think now over the last year or so we kinda made a decision to kinda reconvene and go hard with the music. We recorded a full-length album already called Paper, Piff & Polo that people will get to hear later on in this year. But this Horsepower EP is something like we were on vacation. I had all my boys on vacation with me for my birthday and we just decided to do it and throw it out there.”
Eddie B later chimed in after being questioned about the perceived lack of credit he’s received from music fans for his involvement on the Horsepower EP.
“Yeah, I’ve been rapping forever man. Since [I was] like 15-years-old so it’s okay, it’s cool,” said Eddie B. “At the end of the day man we just love to make music and that’s what it’s always been and that’s what it’s always gonna be. So, whatever people are saying I really don’t pay attention to. I just try to make real dope music. Harry’s always sending me beats so I always got mad work to do. I don’t really read a lot because from what I hear it’s not good to read [blogs]…I just try to focus on elevating the music. That’s really all I care about fam.”
Harry Fraud & Eddie B’s Horsepower EP was released at the top of the month and features appearances from Action Bronson, Meyhem Lauren, and more.
