Brownsville native Maffew Ragazino returns with a dope track featuring fellow Brooklynite Troy Ave, titled “Box Office Smash.” Get your popcorn and dim the lights down. Life’s apparently like a movie for Ragazino and young Powder, who spit intricate tales of living in the lap of luxury.

This didn’t come with ease, though. Both MCs admit that their current lives are directly connected to the grind that preceded it. While listeners will undoubtedly hear progress in Maffew Ragazinio and Troy Ave’s lyrical skills, it’s easy to be lulled into a trance by the track’s production. In other words, the track packs so much soul that it’ll ooze out of your speakers. Credit that to beatsmiths Joe Black and Noyz.

“Box Office Smash” is the second track to drop since Maffew Ragazino inked his deal with Loyalty Digital Corp., and will appear on his forthcoming White Gold EP, releasing February. Just before year’s end, Ragazino dropped “Friday” as a preview of what’s to come. Based on what’s been heard thus far, White Gold is shaping up to be a thorough project.
