Wes Lee often remarks that “…my uncle said that rappers come a dime a dozen, especially at that point, but he felt I had abilities that go further than that as a poet. Poetry would open doors that rapping couldn’t while I finished my degree. I took that advice which led to amazing experiences and put me in a position to have greater control over my art when the time came to dive into the music industry.”
With that encouragement and focus, Wes Lee went on to become a renowned spoken word artist in HBCU circles, which includes opportunities that even spanned to a global audience as a guest speaker at Howard University for the Model African Union Organization.
Following his graduation from SSU, Wes Lee balanced starting a career as a computer engineer and mastering his love of music.
