Aunque resulte dicotómico de cierto modo Jim Jones y Harry Fraud lograron crear un disco con fuertes bases gansta y a la vez tener una álgida postura política, en cuanto lo que busca transmitir con su mensaje; un ejemplo claro es la canción The People, donde se recupera todo lo que los movimientos de activismo racial han reclamado en los últimos años. Es ahí donde está el valor de The Fraud Department, en sus letras, en su compromiso por ... read more
Who will be the first rap artist to strike hard in 2021? Will it be Kendrick Lamar, finally releasing the follow up we've all been asking for?

Ever since I heard about Jim Jones, I couldn't help but think that he would fit perfectly in the Griselda collective. His aura, voice, and ever album covers all feel like it. Harry Fraud ofcourse delivered, I mean, the guy can not miss, ever.

I have two (little) problems with this project though. FIrst, it's the features. Some of these artists just really don't fit it, not with Jones and not with the beat. Autotuned hooks just don't belong here. Second, Jones' lyrics aren't always top notch. ... read more
