Dropping a steady stream of heat as they prepare for their debut album, Shoreline Mafia is about to take the West Coast by storm. Coming through with a socially-distanced summertime vibe, Shoreline shares the music video for "How We Do It." Sampling Montell Jordan's #1 hit and L.A. classic "This Is How We Do It," "How We Do It" is a statement of purpose for Fenix Flexin and the rest of Shoreline Mafia, as he asserts his undying devotion to getting money and getting faded: "I mix molly with my Henn/I get geeked up, count my ends/If a n**** run up on me/Pull this thirty out my pants." In the video, Fenix and guest rapper Wiz Khalifa head to an L.A. skate park in a low-riding Chevy, as they vibe with the locals to the beat of the music. Released last week, "How We Do It" is the latest single from Mafia Bidness, Shoreline Mafia's official debut album, out July 31st via Atlantic Records.
Mafia Bidness is the culmination of a massive year for Shoreline Mafia, packing in 21 tracks worth of Los Angeles heat. Earlier this month, Shoreline shared "Change Ya Life," a bass-heavy West Coast rider's anthem with over 2 million Spotify streams. They followed-up "Change Ya Life" with "Perc Popper," a DJ Flipp-produced anthem with standout verses from Fenix Flexin and OhGeesy. In late June, the crew connected with YG for "Gangstas & Sippas" (Remix), a new version of the Too $hort-sampling, Q Da Fool-featuring slapper. Earlier this year, Shoreline recruited Lil Yachty for the laid-back rider's anthem "Ride Out." "Change Ya Life," "Perc Popper," "Ride Out" and "Gangstas & Sippas" (Remix) will all appear on Mafia Bidness.
Working with frequent collaborators and new faces, Mafia Bidness expands and refines the Shoreline sound, offering viciously clever bars atop propulsive instrumentals. Hosted by OhGeesy, Fenix Flexin, Rob Vicious, and Master Kato, the upcoming project fits firmly within the West Coast tradition, offering beats that reference classic hyphy, G-funk, and party rap tracks, bringing hard-hitting L.A. anthems produced by frequent collaborators Ron-Ron and Ace The Face, and furthering the deep connection between flourishing rap scenes in Los Angeles and Detroit. Dedicated to the memory of the collective's late friend Mac P Dawg, Mafia Bidness hits DSPs on this Friday and is now available for pre-order.
This spring, Rob Vicious shared his new mixtape Breakthrough, which featured production from Three 6 Mafia's DJ Paul and a guest appearance from Fenix Flexin. Fenix is currently preparing to release his first solo project later this year. In February, before the COVID pandemic, Shoreline performed their first festival-headlining set at Vancouver's Lil Fest.
