Goldenvoice & ENT Legends Present
Releasing his debut mixtape Captain Hook in late 2018, Shordie crafted nine tracks of experimental trap ballads that deal with themes of romance gone wrong. The record's lead single, '(Betchua) Bitchuary' gave the rapper his mainstream breakthrough: going viral across America, the track hit 100k views in a matter of weeks, leading to opening slots for Ja Rule and Shoreline Mafia and endorsements from famous names across US pop culture: DJ Mustard, 03Greedo, Slim Jimmi and Todd Gurley have all voiced their approval. As Shordie's online following grows exponentially - the video for '(Betchua) Bitchuary' has reached 19m views and counting - he continues to work on his forthcoming project while taking his electrifying live performances across the US and beyond.
Baltimore-based hip-hop artist Shordie Shordie is cut from the same cloth as Lil Uzi Vert: eccentric, flamboyant and unapologetically unique, his persona is as vibrant and magnetic as his music. An inventive lyricist with a talent for crafting hooks that stick in the memory for months at a time, he's earned the nickname Captain Hook, a testament to his unrivalled melodic abilities. Prior to its release, his debut project of the same name was eagerly anticipated by a broad and devoted online fanbase that follows his every move: regularly uploading teaser snippets of tracks, he built an electrifying hype surrounding the project that speaks to his swiftly growing popularity.
Shordie Shordie was born RaQuan Hudson in 1996. Raised in Baltimore, he had almost no interest in rapping until he formed Peso Da Mafia in 2015 with his brother Lor Dee and their cousin PDM Purp. The group's 2017 single "Money Man" was a regional hit, due in part to the dance that accompanied the song. Peso Da Mafia's first mixtape, Never a Drought, appeared in 2018, and Shordie Shordie was already working on solo material. He released several singles that year, including "Lonely" and "Holidays," but it was "Betchua (Bitchuary)," a melodic, trappy tune about unfaithful partners, that caught on the most, streaming in the tens of millions in a short time. This song opened the floodgates for Shordie Shordie, and he released his debut mixtape, Captain Hook, later that year. Second mixtape >Music arrived in 2020 and managed to gain some chart traction. His third mixtape, a collaboration with Murda Beatz called Memory Lane, appeared the following year. 2022 saw the release of More Than Music, Pt. 2, which included features from Mozzy, Offset, and Rich Homie Quan.
