OhGeesy and Fenix Flexin Indulge in Their Favorite Pastimes in the Latest Single From the L.A. Collective’s 7/31 Mafia Bidness Project
The most gleefully hedonistic emcees in L.A.’s new rap renaissance, Shoreline Mafia specialize in hard-hitting, party-positive bangers. Today, the West Coast’s favorite rap collective shares “Perc Popper,” an unapologetically raw new anthem. Produced by DJ Flipp, “Perc Popper” is a showcase for Fenix Flexin and OhGeesy, as the two emcees engage in a friendly competition to determine who is more savage: “In a foreign whip n**** and it’s stolen/Look at my mouth, lil b*tch, I’m golden,” says Fenix. “Perc Popper” is the latest single from Mafia Bidness, the group’s upcoming debut album, following the Helluva-produced “Change Ya Life” (1.5 million Spotify streams in two weeks).
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 RonRon 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 July 31st via Atlantic Records and is now available for pre-order.
Mafia Bidness is the crown jewel of a massive year for Shoreline Mafia. 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.” Both “Ride Out” and “Gangstas & Sippas” (Remix) will appear on Mafia Bidness.
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.
