The last 24 months has been a wild ride for Shoreline Mafia fans. Since they dropped the ShoreLineDoThatShit  mixtape in November 2017, the group has been on a tear. Over the course of 3 years, they’ve been dropping banger after banger of trap based ignorant party music. Much of time, it’s a little tough to keep up with them as the majority of their songs tend to be loosies; individual singles not tied to any mixtape or album, but rather dropped sporadically on SoundCloud or YouTube. Shoreline Mafia helps us track down these singles with their second installment of the Party Pack compilation series, providing us with a one stop shop to hear their recent assortment of singles. Let’s jump into a few notable moments.

I’m going to preface this first song by saying OhGeesy’s solo track “Heavy” was one of those tracks that launch solo careers. He always dropped solid verses and reliably carried hooks for the band, but when the internet heard “Heavy,” we saw a surge in OhGeesy’s popularity and there were even tons of requests online for him to drop a solo project. This is what I think “Fell In Love” will be for Fenix Flexin. This jam off the compilation is 100% Fenix Flexin. He handles both verses and glues it all together with an oversimplified chorus, repetitively telling the listener “I fell in love with the drugs, I fell in love with the plug, I fell in love with the mud”. While this might seem like a lazily written song on paper, it’s completely different when you hear it. Shoreline Mafia has a way of composing great street music, while making you think they really couldn’t care less. This song is no different.  

Another standout track off this compilation is “Chandelier,” where the group enlists the help of the legendary Curren$y. This might be my favorite jam off the whole compilation. OhGeesy handles the hook with his signature style, similar to what he delivered on one of their breakout singles, “Musty”. The band follows through on this song with the common themes throughout their catalog; sippin’ lean, gettin’ money, gettin’ women, while threatening to resolve any issue with the chopper. The overall balance between Fenix, OhGeesy, and an added dose of Curren$y makes for an overall hard track.

The last track that stood out to me was when OhGeesy teamed up with Detroit’s BandGang Paid Will on “Free Drakeo, Free Greedo,” the freedom anthem demanding the release of affiliate rappers, Drakeo The Ruler and 03 Greedo. If you’re unfamiliar with these cases, here’s a quick synopsis of both: In June 2016, 03 Greedo was charged with possession of methamphetamine and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. The rapper pled guilty to both charges and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Conversely, Drakeo The Ruler was charged and actually acquitted of all his charges (murder and attempted murder) back in July 2019, but to his and his fans dismay, Drakeo has recently been hit with another round of charges in September 2019 for criminal gang activity and shooting from a motor vehicle. Apparently, he’s being charged for the same event he was recently acquitted of. OhGeesy raps on the hook, “Free Drakeo, free Greedo out that motherfuckin’ hellhole”. 03 Greedo pledged to continue releasing music from behind bars and his lawyers are optimistic he will get out early for good behavior, but the future of Drakeo The Ruler remains uncertain for now. Regardless of the outcome, OhGeesy and Shoreline Mafia are throwing their support behind the homies.

If you’re a Shoreline Mafia fan, this compilation is just another stop on their journey towards superstardom. They just signed to Atlantic Records last year and their debut album is supposedly finished and on the way. We’re just waiting on Atlantic Records to push the button. In the meantime, I hope this 9-track compilation will ease that Shoreline Mafia itch you may have.
