Still working on that hot first release.



The natural born storyteller, RichieWes lures his crowd
by his catchy, yet gritty lyrical content. 
Born Wesley Lofton, the young artist has an undeniable drive to musical
stardom.  At the age of 13, he began
perfecting his craft by free styling over various beats.  Through the years of relentless dedication
and hard work, he molded himself in becoming the lyricist he is today.  The Chicago native gained musical influence
stems from the creative word play of Jay-Z, the artistic sounds of Kanye West,
and the conversational lyrical flow of J. Cole. 
Through their inspirational content, he was able to craft his own
signature sound.  With the ambition to
excel in his education, he enrolled in Southern Illinois University of
Carbondale. Lofton entered with a focus to be an advanced student and completed
his Bachelor’s Degree in Public Relations and Marketing in May of 2014.  Being well known on campus throughout his
college career, it was easy to create a buzz surrounding the music.  With a strong passion for performing, he had
the opportunity to open for popular artists such as Tink, Sicko Mobb, Katie Got
Bandz, and Stunt Taylor.  Driven to break
musical barriers in his generation, RichieWes began creating F.A.M.E. (Figure,
Attain, Multiple, Everything).  The thriving,
young rapper is set to release his project fall 2015.  With a mind of an entrepreneur and the heart
of a hustler, RichieWes is defining himself to be a distinguished artist that
is promised to make a musical mark.

 With tracks like Havin Sh*t, Energy, Flexin ft Stunt Taylor,
RichieWes has set the table that he is here. With the deep single January 28
and tracks like Can’t Wait, Fantasize, and smash hit Aint My Fault, it’s just a
matter of time

 Look for RichieWes projects to drop this fall 2015. Stay
in tuned to catch RichiWes at shows throughout Chicagoland (Elbo Room, Abby’s
Pub, Sub t and The Tonic Room) and other major U.S. cities. Richie Wes will be
performing at Southern University Oct 24, 2015 for their homecoming.Also
