About Lil West:
Delaware genre disruptor Lil West fuses a penchant for catchy hooks and chameleonic sonic innovation with knockout bars. Grabbing a mic at just 18-years-old, he made waves with his 2016 Indigo EP followed by buzzworthy collaborations such as “LMK” [feat. Lil Aaron], “DON’T!JustStop” [feat. Dylan Brady], and “Fukk CodeRED” with Night Lovell. Signing to Republic Records, he landed a one-two punch with Vex Part 1 EP and Vex Part 2 EP, including highlights such as “Somedays” [5 million Spotify streams] and “Not Sure” [2.8 million Spotify streams]. Meanwhile, HotNewHipHop christened him “one of the best up and coming artists in the game.” Additionally, he linked up with Brevin Kim on the Metallic Body Language EP and appeared on 100 gecs’ “gecgecgec (Remix).” After dropping a series of fan favorite projects, amassing 35 million-plus streams, and picking up praise from HYPEBEAST, Complex, HotNewHipHop, and Def Pen, to name a few, Lil West has found his creative home on his 2021 EP, Final Home [Republic Records], led by the single “West Side.”
