Northeast Baltimore’s Shordie Shordie is the closest thing the city has to a Lil Uzi Vert-like character. When looking at the artists who have gotten citywide support over the past few years, he is surely the most flamboyant and eccentric. Shordie’s dances and scratchy harmonies have created some of the best music to come out of Baltimore, MD to date. When it comes to making amazing hooks he is largely undefeated, gaining him his unique yet fitting nickname, Captain Hook.
Captain Hook has created an impressive amount of buzz around his brand as a whole through the viral outbreak of his contagiously catchy record “(Betchua) Bitchuary”. The record is an unapologetically truthful anthem that resonates both with women and men, making the bouncy melody irresistible. The bay-area sound paired with the insanely quotable hook has caught the attention of people all over the country and has earned the young star the title of the first Baltimore rapper in history to ever become certified platinum.
Shordie is prominently known for going viral for teasing unreleased music for his fans. These videos have had fans on the edge of their seats for the long awaited album titled Captain Hook 2. Until then, Shordie is gearing up with precursor, titled >Music the Mixtape.
