Wes Lee The Wordsmith has been deemed "The Poet bringing raw soul back into Hip-Hop" because of his vintage hip-hop sound mixed with his new era spoken word flow.
Born in Cleveland, Ohio and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Wes Lee The Wordsmith has become known as a thought-provoking poet, organizational leader and performing artist that promotes black excellence and achievement instead of embracing the negative stereotypes that are usually associated with black men in mass media. He has formed a new production company - Bonzeye Productions - designed to release projects focused on empowering diversity among black men to balance the stale, negative standard promoted to succeed in entertainment, especially music.
Wes Lee is currently preparing to release a series of new songs under Bonzeye Productions (a venture he created with his uncle to provide guidance and support for young artists seeking to achieve balance like Wes Lee). The groundbreaking of this collaboration was kicked off by the reminiscently titled “Memory Lane” featuring the mysterious songstress Xiamara Jennings. Now, Wes Lee The Wordsmith is has released his newest album "COPE Deluxe" LP featuring 17 songs full of poetry and raw soul.
