Shoreline Mafia – “How We Do It” ft. Wiz Khalifa
Shoreline Mafia are leaders of the new L.A. rap renaissance, but sometimes they like to flip the track and bring the old school back. Adapting a party rap classic to fit their illicit lifestyle, Shoreline Mafia shares “How We Do It,” a re-imagining of the Montell Jordan #1 hit “This Is How We Do It.” Bringing back the smooth piano and insistent horns that define the original, the new production by LowTheGreat adds thump to the rhythm section, using 808s and rattling hi-hats to bring the beat into 2020. The new song is a showcase for Fenix Flexin, who interpolates the original hook and trades verses with an energetic Wiz Khalifa. “How We Do It” is the latest in a line of fiery pre-release singles from Mafia Bidness, Shoreline Mafia’s official debut album, out July 31st via Atlantic Records.

Mafia Bidness is the crown jewel of a massive year for Shoreline Mafia. Earlier this month, Shoreline shared “Change Ya Life,” a bass-heavy West Coast rider’s anthem with over 2 million Spotify streams. They followed-up “Change Ya Life” with “Perc Popper,” a DJ Flipp-produced anthem with standout verses from Fenix Flexin and OhGeesy. In late June, the crew connected with YG for “Gangstas & Sippas” (Remix), a new version of the Too $hort-sampling, Q Da Fool-featuring slapper. Earlier this year, Shoreline recruited Lil Yachty for the laid-back rider’s anthem “Ride Out.” “Perc Popper,” “Ride Out” and “Gangstas & Sippas” (Remix) will appear on Mafia Bidness.
Working with frequent collaborators and new faces, Mafia Bidness expands and refines the Shoreline sound, offering viciously clever bars atop propulsive instrumentals. Hosted by OhGeesy, Fenix Flexin, Rob Vicious, and Master Kato, the upcoming project fits firmly within the West Coast tradition, offering beats that reference classic hyphy, G-funk, and party rap tracks, bringing hard-hitting L.A. anthems produced by frequent collaborators RonRon and Ace The Face, and furthering the deep connection between flourishing rap scenes in Los Angeles and Detroit. Dedicated to the memory of the collective’s late friend Mac P Dawg, Mafia Bidness hits DSPs on July 31st via Atlantic Records and is now available for pre-order.
This spring, Rob Vicious shared his new mixtape Breakthrough, which featured production from Three 6 Mafia’s DJ Paul and a guest appearance from Fenix Flexin. Fenix is currently preparing to release his first solo project later this year. In February, before the COVID pandemic, Shoreline performed their first festival-headlining set at Vancouver’s Lil Fest.
