The Los Angeles-based rappers that make up Shoreline Mafia have had a rapid rise to the top of the Hip Hop industry over the past few years.
From hits like “Musty,” “Bands” and now “Wings,” the rap group made up of Ohgeesy, Fenix Flexin, Rob Vicious and Master Kato represents a new era of LA rap.
And with collaborations with producers like Ron Ron The Producer and AceTheFace, Shoreline has built a recipe for other LA rappers to whip up a patented Southern California slapper.
Embarking on a 25-city tour that’s included a surprise stop at the infamous Day N Vegas Festival, Ohgeesy and Fenix are making the Paid In Full Tour a representation of the hard work that it takes to be successful in an unforgiving industry that waits for nobody.
The tour comes fresh off of the release of Party Pack Vol. 2, a project that includes features like 03 Greedo and Curren$y.
Although Rob and Kato are absent from the tour, Shoreline Mafia is very much still intact according to Fenix.
“It’s four people,” Fenix told XXL last month. “We figuring it out.”
Additionally, Fenix added that fans could expect the group’s debut album at some point next year.
Aside from all the latest news from the Mafia, the group also has two other up-and-coming LA rappers in the cut with AzChike and 1TakeJay supporting on the tour.
Chike and Jay come from the same circle of rappers in the industry, which includes other artists like Mike Sherm, Rucci and even King Combs.
AzChike is known for LA-based slappers like “Strapped Up” and “Drunk,” while 1TakeJay’s “Wait Hol’ Up” slogan is a signal of an LA-flavored banger. Jay was most recently included on Mustard’s Perfect 10 album on the track “Intro.”
Shoreline Mafia is still touching the peak of its prominence. Not only are they working on music as a collective, each member has their sights set on individual careers as well.
