Shoreline Mafia rappers OhGeesy and Fenix Flexin and Shordie Shordie use a scenic Hollywood Hills mansion as a private concert venue for the visual for their YG Beats-produced collaborative single “Both Sides.”
Directed by Lyrical Lemonade architect and videographer Cole Bennett, the video for “Both Sides” follows the trio of Shordie Shordie, OhGeesy and Fenix Flexin as they spit lyrics about women and luxury goods, throw back bottles of Hennessy, play pool and get into the groove of the track’s laidback, breezy YG Beats production. If the sonic direction of this song is any indication, Shordie Shordie is poised to become one of his era’s strongest hitmakers.
“I get compared Greedo a lot,” Shordie previously shared with XXL, opening up about his unique melodic style. “He’s a cool n***a. We talk different; we don’t sound like each other. But its a similarity because we harmonize and shit like that. But I’m from the Northeast; he’s from Watts, L.A. It’s two different coasts, two different stories. We sound kinda similar, but me and him both know that we don’t sound like each other.”
“I’ma be the next Prince. I keep hearing about Prince—he was the shit,” the Baltimore artist adds, revealing the artist that he hopes to emulate and be like. “I’ma be the shit, without the heels and shit. I’ma be the street Prince. Females always gonna love me.”
