On May 3, 2019, Shoreline Mafia brought their “OFF THE X TOUR” to the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles, California. Thousands of fans all over the area came and packed the venue to watch Shoreline Mafia perform their array of hits including their most popular songs: “Bands,” “Nun Major,” and “Musty.” Before they took the stage, opener DJ Cypress Moreno came out to get the crowd ready.
Cypress brought out a number of surprise guests including Rucci, 1TakeJay, Shordie Shordie, and AZCHIKE. All of these artists were able to bring their energy and get the crowd prepared for the headliner. Song after song, guest after guest, the crowd stayed loud and energetic in excitement to see their favorite artist. The surprise guests were also extremely interactive and were able to keep the audience into the show. Even if everybody didn’t know all of their songs, they performed their hearts out, and everyone had a good time.
After all of the openers, it was time for Shoreline Mafia to take the stage. The lights were dimmed, and the DJ made sure the stage was clear. They came out to their hit “Musty” and one of the members, Ohgeesy, jumped on top of one of the speakers and sprayed champagne all over the front row. Needless to say, the crowd loved it. They were singing every song word for word, even when the music stops. It is safe to say that Shoreline Mafia has some very dedicated fans.
A couple songs into their set, another member, named Fenix Flexin took a moment to address the crowd. He wanted to make sure that they knew they were not just at a concert watching him perform, but they were partying together. Their performance certainly lived up to this as they never seemed to lose energy. Even the people in the very back or on the balcony were dancing and rapping along every word. All in all, Shoreline Mafia put on a great performance for their loving fans.
