Today we are more than happy to introduce you to the powerhouse collective Shoreline Mafia. The LA based rappers recently made Fox News where they were criticized for their lean use. Shoreline responded with an insane project titled, “ShorelineDoThatShit,” which featured snippets from the Fox story. Shoreline consists of Ohgeesy, Fenix, Rob Vicious, and Master Kato. The four rappers naturally blend their different sounds together perfectly and are quickly proving to be a huge force in the next wave of rap music. We we’re lucky enough to ask the young rappers a few questions; check out the Shoreline Mafia Q&A below:
