Homie Away From Home

Malibu, California-based hip-pop artist Shwayze may not call Scottsdale home, but he parties like Old Town royalty. The 23-year-old rapper has stopped in the Valley several times in the past year and a half, most recently making an appearance at a Memorial Day pool party with the beautiful people at W Scottsdale.

When he rolls into town his focus, besides hitting on hotties, will be music. He’ll be promoting his sophomore album, Let It Beat, which features fun, summertime jams such as the disco-tinged “Get U Home” that will make you want to lace up your skates and head to a roller rink.
