Video: Shordie Shordie ft. Shoreline Mafia – “Both Sides”
L.A.’s Favorite Rap Collective Connects with the Rising Baltimore Rapper for a Cole Bennett-Directed Clip
“After dropping a terrific debut album last November — a stylish bundle of songs that somehow felt nonchalant and meticulous at once — Shoreline Mafia has since become one of the most fascinating acts in a resurgent L.A. rap scene. And on Saturday night, the [collective’s] chemistry was something you could practically reach out and touch. These guys love rapping, and even more than that, they love rapping with each other.” – Washington Post
“Videos filmed in graffitied, just-made condos and fluorescent strip malls near East Hollywood helped make Shoreline Mafia the [collective] of choice for truant teenagers. “Musty” and “Bottle Service” are definitive Shoreline: rollicking, slithering, and, in their creation, laughably janky and blatantly illegal.” – Noisey
“Shoreline Mafia is leading L.A.’s unruly rap renaissance.” – The FADER
“The only prerequisites to enjoying their music are a functional set of ears” – Passion of the Weiss
Perfecting their hedonistic brand of Los Angeles rap, Shoreline Mafia‘s impact reaches from coast to coast. Connecting with melodic Baltimore rapper Shordie Shordie, Shoreline shares “Both Sides,” a visually striking new clip. Directed by Cole Bennett and hosted on the Lyrical Lemonade YouTube channel, “Both Sides” has over two million views since its release last week. In the video, Shoreline Mafia’s OhGeesy and Fenix Flexin welcome Shordie Shordie to the Hollywood Hills, playing pool and drinking Hennessy as they dance to the melodic trap jam.
“Both Sides” arrives amidst Shoreline Mafia’s Euro Wave Tour, a 16-date, 14-country tour currently making its way through Europe. Next week, OhGeesy and Fenix Flexin return to the Western Hemisphere to start the “Paid In Full Tour,” which criss-crosses the United States and Canada for 26 dates.
Last month, Shoreline Mafia shared Party Pack Vol. 2, their latest EP. A tight nine-pack of radio-ready West Coast snap, Party Pack Vol. 2 showcases the lived-in chemistry between the group’s four emcees (Fenix Flexin, OhGeesy, Rob Vicious, Master Kato), as they explore several unique sonic avenues within the collective’s dark and minimalist sound world. With production from frequent Shoreline collaborators like Ron-Ron and Ace The Face, along with hitmaker D.A. Doman (Tyga’s “Taste”), the project peaked at #4 on Apple Music, landing six songs on the service’s Top 200 charts. The new EP peaked at #61 on the Billboard 200 and helped propel the group to the top 50 on Rolling Stone‘s new Artist 500 chart. Shoreline Mafia currently sits at #98 on that chart, with more than 14.5 million streams on their catalog in the past week.
