On Saturday, October 20, the Community Center for the Performing Arts and University of Oregon Campus Radio 8.1 FM KWVA proudly welcome Shoreline Mafia to the WOW Hall.  This show is sold out.

The hottest selling ticket on the WOW Hall’s Fall calendar is Shoreline Mafia.  The Cali rap group just inked a deal with Atlantic Records, whe re-released their 2017 debut ShorelineDoThatSh!t.

If you haven’t heard ShorelineDoThatSh!t yet, it’s very worth checking out. The four-piece have a high-energy, fast-talking style that should go over well with fans of other modern-day crews like Flatbush Zombies and SOB x RBE. The project peppers their songs with audio clips of a mock reporter condescendingly discussing Shoreline Mafia glorifying lean, and the record’s got everything from laid-back jams like “Dope House” to crazed, in-your-face stuff like “Spaceship.”

The crew's success, which, to this point has come in the form of millions of streams across all streaming platforms, is even more remarkable when you consider that it wasn't even all that long ago that they met in person for the first time.  For OhGeesy  (real name: Alejandro Coranza), Rob Vicious (Robert Maggee), Fenix (Fenix Rypinski) and Master Kato (Malik Carson), hip-hop follows an organic friendship from their native Los Angeles. The group’s inception happened when OhGeesy and Fenix linked through MySpace in 2012 while doing graffiti in high school.

OhGeesy laughs, “When we met, we had no idea we were gonna make music. But as we were hanging out… 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.

Two years later, Rob Vicious and Kato were introduced.  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.”

In November 2017, Shoreline Mafia released its first full-length mixtape ShorelineDoThatSh!t, which spawned tracks like “Nun Major,” “Spaceship,” “Serve A Boat” and “Whuss The Deal” -- amassing millions of fans on SoundCloud.

Wrapping up a 12-city, sold-out tour during the first quarter of 2018, they’ve already enjoyed early press coverage from XXL, Noisey, Forbes, PassionWeiss and other music blogs.

It’s not always easy fusing four voices — and personalities - -into a group. So how does Shoreline Mafia do it? It’s goes back to their genuine love. “Honestly? I don’t know how this sh!t be working,” laughs Rob. “I think it’s off the fact that we really f^@k with each other.” Adds Kato, “These are my brothers.”

Doors open at 7:00 pm and showtime is 8:00.
