Shoreline Mafia also paid tribute to Mac on Instagram with a portrait of him in heaven with angel wings, holding a Styrofoam cup. “Rest in peace Mac P Dawg,” it reads.
Mac P Dawg was an up-and-coming voice in West Coast hip-hop. Just last week, he released a video for his new song “Salt Shaker” featuring Doley Barnays. He had previously connected with Shoreline Mafia for a number of features including “Breakdown” and “Half N Half,” and had collaborated on solo tracks with Ohgeesy, Fenix Flexin, and Master Kato.
The Los Angeles Police Department has yet to comment on the shooting.
