Twista x Smith and Hay x Ranna Royce
The single “The Boardwalk” with Twista, Smith & Hay and Ranna Royce was just released to rave reviews.
“Producers Smith and Hay, along with Ranna Royce flip a sixties classic from The Drifters called ‘Under The Boardwalk,’ and for whatever reason, it awoke something in Twista’s vivid imagination. There’s something deeply cinematic about the imagery here, and Twista remains consistently on point. In fact, his rapid-fire flow hasn’t lost a step in over twenty years, and there’s something to be said about that. If you enjoyed his slept on Crook County project, do yourself a favor and take a trip to ‘The Boardwalk.'”
“The track pulls from The Drifters’ classic ‘The Boardwalk,’ and follows previously released singles “Pawn Shop” featuring Conway and ‘Homewrecker’ with KXNG Crooked. The Hoodlum Ball is expected to arrive on January 12 and boasts guest vocals from CyHi The Prynce, Chino XL, The Game and more.”
“The trio [Smith and Hay, Ranna Royce] are back in business with Twista on ‘The Boardwalk,’ which finds the ChiTown legend rocking a flip of The Drifters’ classic of the same name.”

“Homewrecker”, a song about relationship betrayal and infidelity from the upcoming LP The Hoodlum Ball has went viral after being seen on HotNewHipHop.
HNHH posted the following:
Crooked has dropped off a new single, which finds him opening up about one of his most costly vices – infidelity. Over a swing-heavy beat from Smith and Hay, as well as Persian producer Ranna Royce, Crooked looks to himself and delivers an honest confessional. “Let me tell my story, this is how it goes,” raps Crooked, in the opening bars. “I met my soulmate but I never got rid of my hoes, late night text turn to late night sex with my ex, she said I know you got a woman just don’t bring her to your shows.”
So far the singles from the LP, “Pawn Shop” with Eminem’s new artist Conway, “Jack in The Box” with Riff Raff and now “Homewrecker” have all impacted the internet reaching millions.
