You might remember Shwayze from MTV’s mid-2000s flop reality TV show (but really, how many of MTV’s mid-2000s reality shows weren’t flops?) Buzzin. Odds are that you’re more familiar with his 2011 album, Island in the Sun, which earned its fair share of praise and featured Kendrick Lamar. Before that, Snoop Dogg took interest in him, working with him on some of his first post-Buzzin’ tracks. At 31 years old, he’s still an up-and-comer in the rap world. His sound is still very “Buzzin’” and “Corona and Lime,” both of which hit it pretty big on the Billboard top 20 back in 2008.
