[BUBBLE-GUM RAP] Malibu is not all mansions and manicures. Aaron Smith, aka Shwayze, can testify to that. The rapper by way of countless odd jobs grew up in one of the affluent city’s hidden trailer parks. In 2008, Shwayze officially arrived and has been turning out feel-good party anthems like “Corona and Lime” and “California Girl” ever since. Catchiness trumps edginess in Shwayze’s work, and it appears the artist is still enjoying the honeymoon phase of his success. While his less-known work challenges some pop norms, his hits—built around a long-standing partnership with former Whitestarr frontman Cisco Adler—are the male counterpart to Ke$ha’s body-shot-inspired jams.
