Wes Banks in the Studio

Wes Banks


Wesley Javon McCaulley (born May 6, 1992), better known by his stage name Wes Banks, is an American rapper and songwriter. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, Banks began writing music at the age of 12 but did not officially enter the music scene until 2013 with his debut EP, Under the Influence.

Determined to become a full-time musician, Banks migrated to California and enrolled at The Los Angeles Film School where he graduated with a Music Production degree in 2015. He has since released a series of projects and singles such as Space Trip, EP3: Genesis, The Banks Way & Rebels Club.

The success of his early projects inspired Banks to take some time off to further develop his “sound.” He recently joined forces with DBTHEPLUG, a UK-based producer, in addition to 808 Mafia, Oothisb, TNB Beatz, LilMexicoBeatz plus more to create what he hopes will become the new soundtrack for stoners. Wes Banks is set to release new music late Summer 2021.
