As co-founder of prolific hip hop collective Shoreline Mafia, Alejandro Carvajal – better known by his stage name OhGeesy – has been instrumental in developing their signature west coast trap sound. With murky, synth-laced production blending classic Cali influences like G-funk and hyphy music with modern trap, his auto-tuned flows contrast sharply against often violent lyrical content.

While the group has faced lineup changes and controversy around issues like lyrics allegedly glorifying crime, OhGeesy continues leading Shoreline Mafia as one of the most promising rising talents on L.A.’s vibrant rap scene.

Introduction to OhGeesy

OhGeesy (birth name Alejandro Carvajal) was born on March 24, 1994 in San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles. Of Mexican descent but LA raised, he grew up surrounded by street life while developing a passion for music.

As a teenager, OhGeesy began experimenting with lyrics over early 00’s g-funk production while freestyling with high school friends Fenix Flexin, Master Kato and Rob Vicious. The four officially formed Shoreline Mafia in 2016, named after a street term for drug dealers, cartels and gangs operating near the beach.

After early mixtapes generated local buzz, their 2018 breakthrough mixtape ShorelineDoThatShit propelled OhGeesy and Shoreline Mafia into the spotlight, led by their first hit single “Musty”. They signed to Atlantic Records that same year as OhGeesy’s unique vocal style and artistic vision continues steering their rapid rise.

Musical Style & Influences

While trap instrumentation and tempos provide the foundation, Shoreline Mafia fuse the raw aggression of mob music with the bounce and sunshine-soaked melodies of west coast gangsta rap pioneers.

As lead producer, OhGeesy tends toward murky, hallucinogenic beats making heavy use of digitized synths, crisp snares and 808 bass – often sampling classic cuts like Warren G’s “This DJ”. His laid-back, auto-tune cloaked delivery shares much in common with Atlanta trap artists like Future and Young Thug who also influence his style.

But growing up Los Angeles also embedded the bounce of g-funk, distinct Bay Area slang and liveliness of LA hip hop party jams into OhGeesy’s artistic DNA – tracing a lineage back to West Coast originals like DJ Quik, E-40 and Nate Dogg.

While not technically advanced, OhGeesy’s flows exercise inventive melodic sensibilities – weaving catchy hooks around disaffected bars immersed in vice and violence.

Discography & Label Situation

In 2019, Shoreline Mafia released their debut studio album ShorelineDoThatShit via Atlantic Records. Singles “Homicide” and “Musty” propelled it to #4 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart with their west coast trap sound developing mainstream appeal.

As a collective Shoreline Mafia have dropped over 5 mixtapes, including installments of their fan favorite ShorelineDoThatShit series while touring extensively.

OhGeesy’s catalog also includes solo work like mixtape Da Hooochies Favorite, The Ton3 EP and several standalone singles and guest verses further cementing his individual style. After asking to be released from Atlantic in 2021 citing creative differences, his next major project Gelato will be released independently.

Collaborations

Within Los Angeles, Shoreline Mafia have collaborated extensively with peers like 03 Greedo, ALLBLACK, Drakeo The Ruler, G Perico and Travis Barker – weaving between underground and mainstream circles.

OhGeesy has guested individually on singles by Latin trap giant Bad Bunny (“La Canción”) and together with Shoreline on tracks with Rico Nasty, Wiz Khalifa and Danny Towers.

Known initially for more insular collaborations within their circle, these outside co-signs represent Shoreline Mafia and OhGeesy’s deepening credibility amongst rap’s elite trendsetters and ever-expanding fanbase.

Live Performances & Touring

As founders of the Shmula Gang imprint and collective, Shoreline Mafia are touring mainstays within Los Angeles and their native Southwest region – headlining shows from Las Vegas to Arizona.

They’ve brought moshpit energy to festivals like Rolling Loud Bay Area, toured extensively nationwide with trap peers like Hoodrich Pablo Juan.

In 2019, Shoreline Mafia also earned early career highlight opening arena dates for G-Eazy and Lil Uzi Vert’s joint The Endless Summer tour leg adding to their growing industry footing.

Personal Life and Controversy

While preferring privacy around family and relationships, OhGeesy remains passionate about repping his LA hometown and Mexican cultural roots. He had a sister tragically pass away in 2018 which he has cited as early motivation to take music seriously.

However Shoreline Mafia also court regular controversy – from members facing weapons and drug charges to ongoing criticisms around allegedly promoting violence towards police in lyrics. Several shows have already been cancelled over security concerns related to their on-stage antics and hardcore aesthetic.

With fame arriving suddenly so early in their careers, how OhGeesy and Shoreline Mafia respond to heightened public scrutiny while handling jealousy within LA’s frenzied rap scene remains an open question.

OhGeesy’s Net Worth

In 2021, OhGeesy’s net worth was estimated at approximately $700K according to multiple celebrity wealth sites. As Shoreline Mafia’s founding member and artistic visionary guiding much of their output, OhGeesy earns sizable income from music and merch sales, sold-out shows plus streaming royalties.

Additional income stems from his solo releases and production work for other artists. If OhGeesy can maintain Shoreline Mafia’s trajectory on the Billboard charts while avoiding further controversy, his rising net worth valuation appears poised to continue growing substantially.

Still just entering his late 20s in early 2023, OhGeesy and Shoreline Mafia have already exceeded nearly every expectation imaginable – cementing their hard-nosed brand of west coast trap as the soundtrack for a generation of struggle in LA. OhGeesy’s creative mindset blending classic g-funk with their modern mob-affiliated mentality points to even further innovation and success ahead.
