Shwayze - Summer

Last year, one of the hottest sounds in the summer was Shwayze, a duo of rap and acoustic guitars that could fuel the largest of beach bonfires. Over the winter months they seem to have cooled off though, with Cicso Alder, (the pop-acoustic side of the duo), splitting off and Aaron Smith staying the course and adopting the name as his own. Since the last album they had as a duo, which featured Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg and The Knux, we haven't heard too much, but that's all about to change with Shwayze dropping his first solo album, Swayze Summer, this afternoon.

See below for My Chick, the leading single off the EP, which brings me back to the laid back summers of college and the summer playlists we were spinning at that time in our lives. I'm also including a track that is a timeless summer classic for me by G. Love & Special Sauce, Beautiful.

Catch the rest of Swayze's new album here and go get yourself a sunburn before the weekend is over.
