Shwayze (born as Aaron Smith) has made many more people become fans of the "Corona and Lime" combination. The rapper was born May 29, 1985, raised in a Malibu trailer park and calls himself the "only black kid in Malibu".
Shwayze's career began in 2005 when he started freestyling after he jumped up on a Malibu Inn stage where Whitestarr was headlining. Whitestarr frontman, Cisco Adler, automatically recognized his talent and began to work in the studio with him. Fast forward to Shwayze's self-titled debut album, which features Adler on every song, that was released mid-August. Two hot songs on the album are "Corona and Lime" and "Buzzin'", both of which reached spots on the Billboard Hot 100. The duo has starred in a reality TV series on MTV titled "Buzzin'" which followed them on their daily routines, performances and mishaps.
In 2009, the two will venture to Australia to support downunder's biggest hip-hop artist Bliss n Eso. With Shwayze's new west coast sound, Young Hollywood will cheers the artist with a nice Corona and Lime.
