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.”
