Buzzin’

MTV – Tuesday 9 September, 5:30pm

Malibu, California, is best known for its beautiful beaches and being a favourite frolicking spot for superstars like Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Aniston. But amid the pristine sand and multimillion-dollar mansions is a single, solitary trailer park. This is where rising hip-hop star Shwayze grew up. OK, so it’s a step up from living on Detroit’s 8 Mile Road, but it’s a trailer park nonetheless. And the musically inclined Shwayze spent his downtrodden days dreaming of busting out of its confines in search of a better life – and maybe even one of those huge houses that loomed all around him. Well, his shot at fame has finally come… As the protégé of Cisco Adler, Hollywood socialite and son of renowned music producer Lou Adler, Shwayze landed a record deal with Suretone Records and saw his first single, “Buzzin’,” take off. And MTV was on hand to watch it all unfold. The aptly titled reality series Buzzin’ chronicles Shwayze’s comical misadventures as he tries to navigate his way through the music industry and make a name for himself with Cisco by his side.
