Shoreline Mafia on Signing to Atlantic Records: 'Look at Their Roster; Everybody Is Winning'
The West Coast rap group will also perform at the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival.
Shoreline Mafia is ready to take things to the next level. Today, the rap quartet announced their new deal with Atlantic Records in hopes of propelling their careers into superstardom.
“I signed to Atlantic 'cause of their marketing skills," group member, OhGeesy, tells Billboard exclusively. "Besides growing up and always wanting to be apart of a major label, when it finally came time to it, I knew Atlantic was the best move because of the facts behind it. It's simple. Look at their roster. Everybody is winning and they know how to market music in a way that I feel is better then any other label!" he exclaimed.
Atlantic Records is brimming with confidence after securing their deal with Shoreline Mafia. With their breakout hit "Musty" already sitting at 15 million views on YouTube, the label is certain that even more people will catch onto their wave. "Shoreline is about to take over and they're creating their own lane," gushes senior director of A&R, Austin Rice. "Go see a live show and you'll understand why. They've got the vision and we're excited to help magnify the movement they started."
His colleague, Orlando Wharton, delivered a resounding message as to why fans need to check for the budding rap group. "Shoreline is the new wave, grab a poncho," Wharton tells Billboard.
