• Rapper Shwayze (above right), 23, teams up with Whitestarr's Cisco Adler, 29, for the MTV reality show Buzzin' and a self-titled debut.

HOW DID YOU TWO COME TOGETHER?

CISCO: He woke up on my couch.

SHWAYZE: I was like, "Yo, want to make beats?"

CISCO: Really, we needed a link to the 20-year-old chicks after I broke up with Kimberly [Stewart].

HOW'RE THE LOVE LIVES SINCE THE SHOW?

SHWAYZE: I'm still single, but I've gotten some better looks.

CISCO: You got a Pussycat Doll's number! I'm moving on to supermodels only.

HOW'D YOU COME UP WITH THE NAME SHWAYZE?

SHWAYZE: When we started, Cisco was like, "Dude, you need a rap name." So he kind of just knighted me.

CISCO: There are too many Aaron Smiths [Shwayze's real name].

HAD YOU BEEN WATCHING DIRTY DANCING?

CISCO: It had nothing to do with Patrick Swayze. But Point Break is one of the best classics of all time.

SHWAYZE: Road House too. I love Patrick Swayze!
