Shwayze created a new style of rap with his musical partner, Cisco Adler. It is a sun and fun filled style completely different from the NY or Detroit style. And tonight, he brings this party music to Chicago’s Beat Kitchen. Early on, he plays “Drunk Off Your Love” and everyone dances and sings along. “Feeling tipsy when your lips against me and I can’t control myself!”
A little later he sings the massive hit, “Corona And Lime”. “Baby, will you be my Corona and lime? And I will be your main squeeze.” His lyrics are perfect for joyously singing along.
Shwayze is in a party mode as he asks the bartender for another bottle of vodka, because he is all out after pouring it into the mouths of fans in the front row. Fans go ahead and start to buy him shots. He goes on to take about 3 shots throughout his set . One fan ups the ante and hands him a weed vape mid song. He takes a puff and then carries it around with him until the next break in the song when he can take another puff. Then, he hands it back to him.
Later on, he sings “Buzzin”, from his 2013 self titled album. “She was buzzin’ all over me like she fell in love” sings along everyone as they sway to the beat.
He closes with “Love is Overrated”. “I just want to fuck tonight, love is overrated. I don’t want to take my time, cause that get’s complicated.” It’s very impressive how he can command a room and create such a great vibe with just a microphone and a DJ behind him.
