A midwestern emcee with a perfect mix of bravado and vulnerable lyricism, Cwest's true-to-life brand of hip hop has him poised for a major breakthrough. Born Cory West in La Porte, Indiana, the young artist grew up playing in metal and rock bands before discovering his passion for hip hop. Dubbing himself Cwest, his natural gift for language allowed him to explore his feelings about his own struggles and turn them into songs with a universal message. After years of staunch dedication, he officially emerged in 2020 with the full length 'Time To Kill.' Aggressive, thought provoking, and totally unapologetic, 'Time To Kill' marks the arrival of a major new talent on the hip hop underground.
