Sheck Wes is signed to record deals with both Kanye West (G.O.O.D. Music) and Travis Scott (Cactus Jack), but that doesn't mean that both artists have taken an active role in his burgeoning music career.
On Tuesday, the 20-year-old Harlem MC shared his desire to work more closely with West, tweeting: "I wish Kanye was more involved in my career."
In response to one fan who suggested that he appear on West's forthcoming album Yandhi, reportedly scheduled for release on September 29, Sheck replied, "No. MUDBOY," a reference to the artist's forthcoming debut album.
For Sheck, being unable to work in tandem with Kanye, likely one of the reasons why he signed with the Chicago icon in the first place, is clearly frustrating. It's difficult enough being signed to one record label that is headed up by a recording artist; imagine being signed to two.
That said, nobody needs to throw a pity party for Sheck Wes—including Sheck Wes. Not only does the young artist have the muscle of three labels at his disposal (including Interscope), but his current viral single, "Mo Bamba," recently debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 82.
The future is bright for Mr. Wes, with or without Mr. West by his side.
