Written by Fadam on February 26, 2021
Today, Baltimore artist Shordie Shordie and hit-making producer Murda Beatz release their emotional collaborative project, Memory Lane. Listen HERE. The project arrives with a glowing new video for “Same Ni***as.” Watch it HERE. After recording a few songs together in 2020, Shordie and Murda quickly forged a friendship and linked up again to begin work on a full-length. This is the essential product of that grind.
The project is the latest in a streak from Shordie Shordie, who’s establishing himself as one of the hardest working rappers in the game. Alongside Murda, one of the best young producers this generation has to offer, Shordie creates a glowing document of love and loss describing his journey after escaping the streets. Memory Lane comes on the heels of the release of “LOVE” (an infectious anthem with Trippie Redd) where sincerity and introspection are sung throughout. Murda’s expertly layered R&B production provides the backdrop for Shordie to slide in and out of pockets that are equal parts mesmerizing and unpredictable.
Shordie Shordie and Murda Beatz have kept fans captivated in the run-up to Memory Lane, teasing the project with “LOVE,” “Good Evening,” and “DOCTORS.” For both artists, Memory Lane follows a monumental 2020 too. Shordie released his >Music mixtape, which garnered over half a billion streams across platforms, plus acclaim from Pitchfork, The FADER, Complex, XXL, and more. Murda, meanwhile, produced the Doja Cat-featuring “motive” for Ariana Grande’s Positions, which debuted at #1 on iTunes’ Top Albums chart. He also lent his talents to several tracks on Lil Baby’s #1 album My Turn and Lil Wayne’s Funeral, as well as songs for Teyana Taylor, Ty Dolla $ign, and PARTYNEXTDOOR. Additionally, he released his own singles, “Doors Unlocked” with Polo G and Ty Dolla $ign, and “Banana Split” with YNW Melly and Lil Durk. This run recently helped earn him a spot on Forbes “30 Under 30” list. On top of all of the accomplishments both artists have garnered, Memory Lane is an achievement in its own right and the sort of project that shows neither artist is planning on stopping anytime soon. – Courtesy Of Warner Records Press Release
