Emerging artist of the week: Wes Period

Hip hop fans might have been sleeping on it’s future prodigy.. but they’ll soon be knowing his name real well. Meet LA’s own rapper/singer/producer Wes Period. This multi-talented, hook writing mastermind has been kicking around for a couple of years now, putting out the “Friendly Fire” EP in 2011, dropping the party starting anthem “Touch It“, collaborating with singer/songwriter Olivver The Kid, and a handful of other absolutely amazing releases. Recently, he’s launched his best work yet. “Highs & Lows” is a witty song produced by UK producers Lovelife about life’s highs and lows, with a chorus about smoking so much weed you can’t move, thus getting so high.. you’re low.

 

“Wes Period drops the great reference, “Baby, I’m Oliver Twist / Baby, I’m Charles Dickens / Either way, this is my story, brah / I turned the world to my b*tch / Right now Topanga my chick / This is not Cory, brah / Let the boy meet the world, but you’re mad when the boy meets your girl / Hate when the drama occur, but these girls don’t belong to you, sir.” – Buzzbands
