He’s back and it's fillzun for everyone! Frankie Smith, the Grand Daddy of Pig Latin Slang, an original pioneer of hip hop and rap, is back with a new CD that has everyone talking and dancing.

“Frankie Smith & His World Wide Party Crew featuring Franklynn” has the freshness of today’s music and is guaranteed to sweep the sound waves. It premiers sounds, beats and his famous frogman voice with several smooth, jazzy vocalists and Pig Latin dialect that will undoubtedly suit all listening levels. It’s sure to hang another Gold record on his wall!

Frankie is known for creating fun on the dance floor for all ages with his legendary platinum-selling hit single “Double Dutch Bus” which has withstood the test of time. It continues to be sampled by some of today’s top selling hip-hop and rap artists such as Missy Elliott (for her Grammy-nominated song “Gossip Folks”), Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z. Hip-hop and rap performers Ice Cube, Tone Loc and others have recognized him for his contribution to rap and hip hop.

Frankie is an entertainer extraordinaire and this CD shows he still has the creative energy and vitality to make you want to dance the night away! He has the distinction of crossing generation gaps for listening and dancing pleasure. He’s an innovator with a global fan base.

An original pioneer of rap/hip hop, Frankie now amazes us with his ingenious contribution to techno with “She Made Me Cry.” “Yum Yum” (Gimme Me Some), “Getting Up Boom Boom” and “I Was Like” are all great dance songs. Frankie's love of watching Black College drill teams perform was the inspiration for “Slappya Thigh” which offers a unique sound created by slapping his hand against his pant leg in swift rhythmic motion. If you’ve ever attended a school graduation “Congratulations” is a must play; and what’s the end of year joy for school dismissal without talking about the principal...you’ll laugh ''til you cry at the song “Principal Bloomberg”.

There’s a lot more for everyone on this globally-focused musical treat. Frankie has shown that there is no one category of music to fit his style…he will always be ahead of his time!! Join Frankie Smith & His World Wide Party Crew and dance, dance, dance to the sillzun!
