Buzzin' About Shwayze

Last week on iTunes there was a free download of Shwayze's new reality show Buzzin', so I had to check it out.

Buzzin' is about Shwayze recording his album and all the craziness that goes on behind the scenes. In Episode 1 he has to get back to LA for an 8AM court hearing after spending the whole night in Phoenix performing at Superbowl afterparties. In Episode 2 his car gets impounded, and after a night of partying he has to rush back to Cisco Adler's studio to record with Dave Navarro. As you can see, the race against time is a constant theme in Shwayze's life.

Behind every performer is an entourage that made him that way. I ♥ Shwayze's crew. Cisco, Warren, and Jordan remind me of the guys on Entourage so much sometimes. Cisco's the Turtle of the show, Warren's the E, and Jordan's the Ari.

What I like about this show is that Shwayze's real. Unlike people on other reality shows, he has real problems and struggles. He's not just someone who's had everything handed to him all his life. He works hard and he plays hard. Buzzin' shows people that although the music scene may look glamorous, it takes a lot of hard work to rise to the top.

This is the perfect show for the summer. It's got music, partying, and a guest appearance by Dave Navarro. What else could you ask for? Oh right, a good review of the show by me. Well you've got that too Shwayze. ;-)
