About Shoreline Mafia
Shoreline Mafia isn’t just a rap/hip-hop collective — it’s family. For OhGeesy (real name: Alejandro Coranza), Rob Vicious (Robert Maggee), Fenix Flexin (Fenix Rypinski) and Master Kato (Malik Carson), hip-hop follows an organic friendship from their native Los Angeles. The collective’s inception happened when OhGeesy and Fenix linked through MySpace in 2012 while doing graffiti in high school. “I had this nigga in my Top Friends,” OhGeesy laughs. “When we met, we had no idea we were gonna make music. But as we were hanging out, doing crazy shit, I got a laptop and began recording myself. Then Fenix heard it and he was like, ‘I’m trying to make music too!’”
After recording one song, they clicked and immediately founded Shoreline Mafia. “The name incorporates the beach and water. The waves start at the shoreline,” says OhGeesy. Fenix remembers the early days; recording on a “$100 mic and Garage Band” and putting music on SoundCloud. “That shit started getting views and we just kept it up.”
Two years later, Rob Vicious and Kato were introduced. “We were just doing regular, teenage shit,” says Rob. By 2017, the newcomers officially joined Shoreline Mafia. The quartet garnered widespread attention with 2017’s “Musty” (produced by Ron-Ron). With over 12 million plays on YouTube, the track propelled Shoreline Mafia onto hip-hop’s larger radar, including an appearance at the Rolling Loud Festival. “It’s a hard ass song,” explains OhGeesy of the viral track. “All of our songs are that hard. That was so catchy, everyone caught on to it.”
