5/29/20: Shoreline Mafia drops new single “Ride Out” ft. Lil Yachty.
On the brink of their debut album, Ohgeesy, Fenix Flexin, Rob Vicious, and Master Kato known collectively as Shoreline Mafia, have been in the rap headlines for other reasons aside from music lately. Fans have been questioning if this will be the group’s lone album, a one and done that could mark the end of the collective as fans knew it. The reason being that little over a month ago, Fenix Flexin announced via social media that he would be leaving the group, effective upon the release of their upcoming debut album (album name TBA). What that means for the group as a whole going forward, post-album is still yet to be seen. Though given Ohgeesy’s star power, along with Rob Vicious’s duel solo projects under his belt, it would make sense if they all went their own direction once the debut album is eventually released. Though until then Shoreline Mafia fans can rejoice in this new single “Ride Out” featuring Lil Yachty, which marks the second single from the upcoming Shoreline Mafia debut album, following April’s “Gangstas & Sippas”. For the single itself, it is pretty straight forward if you’re familiar with Shoreline Mafia’s music, but this time with Lil Yachty entering the Shoreline world and giving his take on the heavy west coast inspired instrumental. Personally I was a fan of both Rob Viscious and Ohgeesy’s respective verses, though was not a fan of Yachty’s much at all. In my opinion Yachty just didn’t fit the style and sound of Shoreline and just sounded out of place to me. Also disappointed there is no Fenix Flexin present on the track, and wonder if that’s just a coincidence or if this track was created/recorded during the straying between himself and the group. All together wasn’t the biggest fan of this song, although I’m a big fan of Shoreline Mafia and am definitely excited to see what they bring on their debut album, and to see what they bring going further, hopefully as a crew but possibly just as individual artists.
