Smoke DZA and Harry Fraud have teamed up for their latest collaborative effort, He Has Risen. Snoop Dogg joins the Brooklyn beat-maker and Harlem’s hazy wordsmith on the project’s first single, “Morals,” which debuted via The FADER with the album’s tracklist. Smoke DZA and Snoop Dogg trade verses of their adolescence, growing up as participants in a range of activity as opposed to being spectators in their respective neighborhoods.
With dusty soul production led by a harrowing bass guitar lick, Smoke DZA and Snoop Dogg sink their teeth into the atmospheric beat with gritty vocals and rhymes that sound like they could be derived from a street code textbook. Smoke DZA and Harry Fraud’s one rapper/one producer synergy has been displayed before, having previously teamed up for 2012’s Rugby Thompson and again in 2013, forming a trifecta with Curren$y joining for the trio’s 4-track The Stage EP. Smoke DZA and Harry Fraud’s He Has Risen is available for pre-order and releases March 4th.
