RIP Mac P Dawg of Shoreline Mafia.

What a cursed and doomed era of L.A. rap. Drakeo, Greedo, and Frosty all getting locked up amidst epic runs. Nipsey gets killed. Mac gets killed. Shoreline splitting up after their debut album.

A golden age became what could've been....

Complex has reached out to the Los Angeles Police Department for comment. 

Earlier this week, Fenix Flexin informed fans that he would be leaving Shoreline Mafia to move forward "with my individual career and visions for myself and where I wanna be." As the Mac P Dawg news broke overnight, he and other members of Shoreline, as well as fans and other admirers, shared tribute messages:

Atlantic Records, the label Shoreline Mafia is signed to, shared a tribute message as well.

Rest in peace Mac P Dawg. 🙏 Our condolences go to out to his family and friends.

Over the past year, Mac P Dawg had amassed millions of views for his videos including the Ohgeesy collab "Let Me Know," the Fenix Flexin collabs "Half n Half" and "Go Getters," and more.

In a 2019 interview with AllHipHop, Mac reflected on his rise with Shoreline.

"Fenix was the first person I linked up with," he said at the time. "I was a freshman, he was a junior. Even since middle school, I was always kicking it with people older than me. Didn't hang with people my age. I was into the same bullshit as him. We were young delinquents, degenerates just doing dumb shit."
